Man, I'll tell you what. Punk is as good, both verbally and physically, as anyone who I've ever been in the ring with. I had the pleasure of being in there, but I have to tell you something, I was a little nervous. I didn't know if I could still cut promos on that level, but when you're dealing with a guy like Punk who is so intense, you realize that you either swim or your sink, and I was doing my best to stay afloat. I didn't realize people were going to react so overwhelmingly, because when I was done, I was just like, "Thank goodness that didn't go badly." But when I go to the back, I got a standing ovation, and everywhere I went, people were complimenting me on that promo. It was great. I loved it.
Do you see the promo leading to a match, or are your wrestling days over?
I think my match days are over, but hopefully it will lead to something else. I think it's always great to have the guys from different eras in there together. It works great for everybody.
When you look at the current roster, who do you see as the next breakout star?
Carrying the company is something people don't realize how hard it is to do until they get there. Take CM Punk. Even when he was giving great promos and having great matches, was he carrying the company? Up until a year ago, I would've said he's too different and he's going to only have that niche market. But then he gave that incredible promo and he changed the business. I'm not sure who has that type of promo in them. I really can't give you an answer, but there are a lot of guys who are going to be vying for that spot. Daniel Bryan is going to come out of his tag team eventually with an even bigger head of steam as a singles wrestler. Then you have guys like Antonio Cesaro who can do it all and he's finding his way as a character, so I think there's no shortage of candidates.
