His thoughts on Raven being a part of the show: "Raven's the other part; why would Shane book Raven again? Yeah, and Raven, to a degree I think it's real, laughs at the fans, he works them and thinks he's some sort of wrestling god; that everybody should bow to him. I've been around the guy for so many years, so I know him. He has a huge ego and he thinks that he's just the king of everything. So, what does he do? Any five year old child will know, 'Hey, if I touch the stove and no one corrects me, I can touch the stove as much as I want; no matter how much it burns me and the people around me gets upset and has to take me to the hospital, I can do whatever I want.' Raven can go sit in the corner and watch a bunch of indy guys bump for Gary Wolf, and bring a guy in the ring called 'Cripple H' and have the Sandman cane him just for his own entertainment; and then guess what? I'm still booked. Isn't that great? I didn't do a damn bit of work and guess what I'm going to do a second time? Not a damn bit of work is my guess. And I'm friends with Raven too, this is the thin; I'm friends with both these guys but until someone speaks honestly, like a Luke Hawx or finally me, this is never going to change."
Are things like Extreme Rising, Crossfire and ROH offering the 'revolution' to the WWE and offering a difference to the monopoly of the WWE: "No, absolutely not; not even close. WWE still monopolizes and dominates; TNA is the most distant second you can ever imagine (and then some), and what these are are just independents. You know, to a degree, TNA is just an Indy with TV; that's all they really are. They pay their wrestlers like that; they take care of their wrestlers like that; most of them, most of them, not their top guys. And, I can speak from experience; so if anyone doubts me, I can show you my paychecks. That's it, it's WWE or nothing. There's still kids watching TV; no kid there is watching TV and saying 'Man, I want to go to TNA'. No, they might say, 'Hey, I want to go to a place like ECW' or what they all say is what we said, 'I want to go to WWF, WWE one day. I wanna wrestle Hulk Hogan or the Ultimate Warrior, Triple H.' All the guys on top; they don't say anything else."
