WWE being in a good place: "We've grown and matured as a company. This Wrestlemania will be the biggest single night in our industry's history, but we're just scratching the surface of where we're going. We're into movies, publishing and creating our own television network later this year."
Which job he prefers, the office or the ring: "I've always had a fascination with business. I've been involved with the creative side practically since the day I started with the company in 1995. That's the part I love most, creating the stories, coming up with the spark of an idea and seeing our talent go out there and execute it. Being allowed to be creative in your work is a wonderful gift. It's a cliché, I know, but we put smiles on people's faces every day. That's the fun of our business. When you go to a WWE event, and you perform, and you see the smile you put on a kid's face … that's an incredible feeling.
"You'd have to be a professional athlete or entertainer to get that. I do miss the pain. Every year, I know I'll feel like a bus hit me the day after Wrestlemania. And the second day I'll feel like the bus backed over me again. It's a badge of courage almost. To an athlete, it becomes a point of pride, how beat up you feel the next day. It means you left everything on the playing field."
