Some of his inspiration and material for being Doink the Clown: "We just kinda rode it as we went, you know? I just fell right into it; I did my homework and watched a lot of freakin' old Batman flicks with the Joker and Jack Nicholson. Just a lot of standing in front of the mirror, making goofy ass faces and switching from being happy to being out there and just changing things on the drop of a dime; I think that's what really helped me get it over with being able to use my face so drastically and change it so drastically, change my emotions under that character. And plus the fact of my wrestling ability, I always had that and actually I did the same thing that I did when I was Matt Borne or Big Josh or whatever; I did the same thing except I was painted up as this freakin' clown. It actually enabled me to take it to the next level, you know; let's exploit this a little more. Actually, it was fun, it was probably the best time of my career and I had a lot of fun doing it but once you're there and once I got it over so big, so quick a lot of guys are jealous and it's just the way it is; guys wanting to see you fall."
