"When I first started my career, there wasn't a Money in the Bank match and I ended up winning the first Money in the Bank. There wasn't a TLC [tables, ladders and chairs] match and that's a match we kind of created. On top of the things I did want -- the Tag Team title, the Intercontinental title, the U.S. title and the Heavyweight titles -- these other things came about during my career that I never would have thought possible to accomplish because they weren't around. In that respect, I feel really good and it wasn't hard to hear the news that they gave me. Sure, there's an initial kind of 'Whoa! Now what do I do with myself?' But once I got my head around that, I was like, 'Well, I did everything I set out to accomplish.' I wanted to wrestle Bret Hart, but he was already retired, so that wasn't a possibility. Perfect world -- retiring in a match against Christian in Toronto at a WrestleMania would have obviously been great. But there's only so many perfect things you can have happen, and everything else I was pretty much blown away by. Retiring at 'Mania as the World Champ is a pretty good way to go. I'll take that.
