Bobby Roode: "My opinion was you put the belt on him as a baby face and he is going to die 7 deaths. So my idea was to stop the craziness, get everybody upset and mad at me, and said you know what guys, it's not his time he's not the guy. Let's get him to be real consistent, solid as a rock, and then when you put the belt on him, it means something. So his progress to this day right now, no matter who wins the belt at Bound for Glory, you can switch the belt back to Bobby Roode off Aries, you can switch the belt off Hardy and back to Bobby Roode, and you can be safe, because Bobby Roode is that damn good . Bobby Roode has come into his own as a heel, he's got credibility now and he doesn't miss a beat. If I'm in the ring with him bro, standing there doing a promo I can tell when something is going to be hard. I've been in the ring with guys, when I'm like oh my gosh I'm going to have to work my ass off to get this match over. When you're in the ring with Bobby Roode it just works now. He's got himself over, he's established as a heel, and now he's wedged in, now if you got in trouble if Austin Aries got hurt or if Jeff Hardy got hurt, you can put the belt on Bobby Roode tomorrow and he'd be gold, he'd be safe."
Devon and Bully Ray: "He has really stepped up, and speaking of Bully Ray, I have to say something about Devon. One of my biggest disappointments this year has been Devon and I really wish he was with the company. You talk about a guy that got in shape, you talk about a guy that carried himself well, you talk about a guy that's a good person, you talk about a guy that went out with fire every night and tore the young guys up, you talk about a guy if you book him on a house show with no security and no ride and you tell him to go to six different media events and go to TV stations and he doesn't b---h and complain and makes all the appearances driving himself on time and still gets to the building before anybody. To lose someone like Devon, it's like what are you thinking! It's been one of my biggest disappointments so far this year. I pray to God we get him back. Now talking about Bully Ray, I hated seeing the team breakup because I loved 3-D. Okay so it happened, and he then got in crazy shape all of a sudden, and he told me, "I want to be the single best main event heel in the business" and I heard that about a year and a half ago, and I'll be damned he's definitely the single best main event heel we have right now to date. And I can't even imagine how much bigger he can get, but he's on fire."
James Storm: "He is a fan favorite, I just think direction wise, it's almost like "the little engine that could", when a company is up and running, you got to get the steam, you got to get build up, before you put the belt on a huge baby face like a Hulk Hogan, or a Rock, or a Stone Cold. I just think that this company needed to be building, and with the roster of heels and baby faces I just really feel that our timing, and it's not his fault, it's not Storms fault, I think our timing was off with this whole thing and me flipping the Roode thing and all the stuff I got my nose into, because they asked me. I think it kind of screwed his momentum up also, but he is such a good baby face and such a constant. I think this whole Roode thing is going to get him back on track and at the end of the day he is going to be better because he is not backing off and he is not discouraged. I think it was a timing thing and nothing to do with him as a baby face or his run."
