The future of WWE: "I think we're evolving all the time. If you look back in the '80s at what the superstars were like and what they're like now. We're much more athletic.

You really want to let your body mature and grow as much as it can before you put all that impact on it.
"And get yourself in shape. You need to stand there, you need to look good, you need to look different to a normal person. A lot of people make that mistake, they don't pay attention to how they are physically. Wearing a pair of tights they look awful, with their bellies hanging out. You have to look the part "
