On Daniel Bryan: "I loved that we put him over in the best way possible. We threw out all the bells and whistles. Everything. Even up to the point of me tapping out. But the next night we came back and they didn't want him selling. It wasn't his fault. Daniel is an incredible worker. He knows what he's doing and is an incredible worker. But they didn't want him to come back selling which drove me nuts because we beat the hell out of the guy and he's being pulled off in a stretcher."
On His Last WWE Run: "It was just bad from right off the bat. They said, ‘We want you to come out and do this thing with Hunter and Steph and Randy,' and I was like, ‘First night back and you can't give me five minutes in the ring by myself in front if the fans? I told them from the very beginning [making me a babyface] isn't going to work. They said, ‘Nah, man. They love you. They love you. They miss you.' That's going to last for 30 seconds. I said, ‘They want to hate me and I'm good at that.'"
