Getting ready for the show:
"I can honestly say I didn't have any idea what I was getting myself into. I thought it sounded great, the premise of the show, but I had no idea the wringer that they were going to put us through. … There were some moments that everyone had when they wondered if they could really do this."
"I did a lot of conditioning and training before the show, but what I wasn't prepared for was the emotional aspect of the show. Every time we're in real BDUs (Battle Dress Uniforms) and in KIT (Knowledge Information Technology), it was amazing. The realities of what the military has to go through really sunk in. Clearly we don't have an opposing force, but it really felt real and made me feel so much respect for them, more than I even had before."
Working with WWE for the Troops:
"With the WWE, we go overseas pretty much every year -- at least for the past eight or nine years -- to bring a part of America over to [the troops]. And so the idea of the USO and being able to send entertainers to support our troops, I love the idea of it because I've been a part of it. [The USO is] an amazing organization and one that I'm proud to represent. It makes a good feeling that when you get through your mission, you know you've earned money for not just the military men and women but for their families."
