Kevin Greene was as intense an individual as I've ever been in the ring with. Our 6 Man match w/Kevin, Naitch, & Roddy from Slamboree '97 is one of the highlights of my career. I'm honored to been a part of that with him. Very sad to learn he passed away today.--#ripkevingreene pic.twitter.com/us8WldreMQ— Sean Waltman (@TheRealXPac) December 21, 2020

I only met Kevin Greene once, a chance meeting at Universal Studios, where we talked while watching our children play at Fievel‘s playground. He loved his time in wrestling. https://t.co/1jytAbfP2Y
RIP Kevin Greene. This is a real bummer. He was a defensive force. As a lifelong @RamsNFL fan I immediately was a big fan of his larger than life personality on and off the field. It’s fitting that he later got involved in pro wrestling. God speed sir.— Frankie Kazarian (@FrankieKazarian) December 21, 2020
the football field, in and around the wrestling ring, coaching, life, etc., etc... everything the dude did was magnetic.— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) December 22, 2020
Just an unforgettable human.
Rest easy big man. You had a HELL OF A RUN. You done good. pic.twitter.com/qzFz0Hp5C7
