Being part of the stars from the UPW (John Cena, Daneils, Kazarian, Samoa Joe), the training videos, and if he's surprised at the level of success they all have obtained: "Well, I was never surprised talent wise, but, I mean, so many times especially in an objective business like this, where talent doesn't necessarily equal success; I'm happy that we all have the opportunities and caught the breaks that we did. I mean, we could have easily fallen through the cracks, especially living out in Southern California, you know, where it's sort of tough to break pas the independent level just because there's so little actual big time independents going on out there and it's hard to make your name on that level out here and break out to the point where people are flying you to the East Coast and flying you overseas. It's a testament to guys like Frankie Kazarian and Joe and other guys on the West Coast; guys like Joey Ryan, who's just recently come into TNA for the first time. You know, it's a testament to their talent that they've broken through especially now when it's so tough in independent wrestling to catch hold and catch fire. So, I wasn't surprised by that, I was just happy the breaks we caught were good breaks."
If he would ever want to be on Dancing with the Stars: "Oh sure, especially when I had that wacky mask back in the day. You know, I follow my good friend Velvet Sky on Twitter and I know that she was campaigning pretty hard to be on the current season or the last season and you know, if a hot chick like that can't get on, what chance do I have? But, I have to be realistic and say if Velvet can't make it, no one wants to see me in a leotard. For crying out loud, they can see that on Thursday nights. But I promise, if I get on Dancing with the Stars, I will keep the bell bottom tights!"
