On Cryme Tyme's break-up: "What happened was it was just time. It was one of those things where we weren't getting titles for whatever reason and you know, if we break-up, we can break up and always come back together because you know, no matter what we're still brothers. So plans for me that, I was told a year after I got released, I was told my plans by some of the old writers. A lot of the old writers live in L.A. And we always talk. We always have lunches and a lot of them are working at Paramount, where I'm at and they will see me and be like 'Oh yeah, this guy used to be a wrestler.' But I know the plans for me was I was supposed to go to Raw and face Cena and I actually remember the day of the draft and I didn't get drafted to Raw like I was supposed to that night so I was like something's up. So we came to Smackdown the next day, I remember walking down the hallway and seeing Michael Hayes and I was like 'what am I doing today?' and he said 'I don't f-ing know because you're not supposed to be here.' So it was supposed to be me vs. Cena and they were supposed to build me up as a major heel on Raw. But because of certain agents and certain people didn't think I deserved it all of a sudden I became the guy that can't wrestle."
On if he knew the people that were against them: "I do. I know who some of them were, but you know me I'm a business man and I don't need to air all that on the radio."
On what happened with CTC (Cryme Tyme Cenation): "It's a weird thing with Cena sometimes. I think guy's like Hunter, Taker, Rock, you know those guys are onions. They have layers to them Stone Cold, you know. They've changed their gimmicks up in so many different ways all the time and it always benefited them. They see the best in changing what they are doing up. And sometimes with Cena he doesn't really want to change it up. I remember we were doing the CTC thing and where at a house show and it was John Cena vs. Ted Dibiase and Cody Rhodes (in a handicap match). And I remember Randy Orton coming to me and he was like 'What the F-ck? Why is he facing two guys? You guys aren't facing anybody. You're doing a run in and I'm facing a random person.' You know, it didn't make any sense. He (Orton) was like, 'why not just make it a 6-man tag?' We were doing CTC but at the house shows it was CTB. It was Cryme Tyme/Batista. We literally did more 6-mans where it was me, J and Batista vs. Jericho, Rhodes and Dibiase or Orton, Rhodes and Dibiase. You know, it was a weird situation. Everybody thought it was beneficial. I can't really tell you how Cena felt but I just know that it just didn't go any further than what it did."
On whether there is a glass ceiling in WWE: "Well you know what? That glass ceiling is gonna come into really good context in the next say... I say three years. Cause Kofi Kingston's contract is gonna be up soon. And if there is anybody on the WWE roster, right now who deserves a world heavyweight championship more than Kofi Kingston, please let me know who he is? Because honest to God, Kofi Kingston is amazing. He makes every match he is in. There hasn't been a match that Kofi Kingston has been in where you haven't been amazed by what he did. So if the glass ceiling does exist, Kofi Kingston shouldn't get a title. But if the glass ceiling doesn't exist, within the next 2 years Kofi Kingston should be world heavyweight champion at least once."
Which World Title should Kofi get?: "Either one and this comes straight from my heart. He should be WWE champion at least once. Because honestly who deserves to be champion more; Ryback or Kofi Kingston?"
