On what he saw in Joey Ryan and Alex Silva: "For Joey Ryan, it was a guy who had presence. He had an attitude, which ultimately proved to be his demise. He was a seasoned vet and I had seen him before so I thought he was one of those guys that could do something at the next level. Alex Silva was a guy who just had raw talent and just wanted to have an opportunity and was given one."
On getting back in the ring: "Every now and then I get the itch to jump into the ring and that lasts for about three seconds. I'm definitely happier with what I'm doing. I've always fashioned myself as a teacher and as someone who wanted to give the information back to the next generation. I've always used wrestling and my in-ring career as a way to facilitate my way to the office. My ultimate end goal was to always be in a position similar to this."
On being billed from Chicago: "I didn't have the pleasure of being born in Chicago, but when I had the choice of living in a place, Chicago was the only place I wanted to be. I identify with the city; it is a hard working, blue collar city. And it's probably because at nine years old, my favorite football team became the Chicago Bears. When I got the opportunity to be from somewhere, my character, in his mind, was born and raised and will be a Chicagoan forever."
