"How it was in the nWo was he was the big star, and I was Buff Bagwell, trying to make it. So yeah, there's some things that haven't been settled. I'm not going to lie. We'll just see how it works out when we wrestle," said Bagwell. "It's going to be a challenge. But I'll be there, and I'll try my best to bring the big man down. I'll make it simple. He's big, he's bad, but he's not Buff, and he's not the Stuff."
Bagwell also declared himself "100 percent" recovered following a horrific car accident in April 2012 that left him with broken bones in his neck, face and jaw.
"It was absolutely the hardest thing, and that's saying something coming from a 43-year-old man who has been in this business as long as I have. It was the hardest thing I've ever gone through ever. When it was all over, I was like, How am I going to fix this?" said Bagwell. "It's only been eight or nine months, but in my brain, it's been two years, because of what I've had to fix, what I've had to do to get back. You name yourself Buff Bagwell, and then you come out of the hospital fat and skinny. And that's how I was coming out of the hospital. I was fat, and I was skinny.
"I've fixed all of that, and I literally maybe for a month now have been 100 percent. Other people have been saying I was 100 percent for maybe two, three months, but for me it's only been a month that I've been 100 percent. I feel great, I look great, I'm back to being Buff Bagwell. I'm just ready to go, man."

Graham discussed his recent health issues and recovery, and his verbal spats with CM Punk and Chris Jericho
"I know that Chris Jericho has never really cared for me, really basically from day one, but anyway I was very shocked (by his comments), I was just trying to make a observation of how things have evolved in professional wrestling with body types," Graham said.
