His feelings of Hogan and Bischoff coming into TNA: "Well, you don't have to use other folks to explain my comments because I'm going to give you what I feel regardless. I do think Bischoff and Hogan coming into the company did what it was supposed to do, and that was to, whether it was negative or positive, it was to bring more attention to the product and when you look at the overall issue, the underlying issue and overall factor, the matter is they did just that. If people are talking about TNA, and regardless of how negatively they talk about the company or how positively they talk about it, they're still talking about it and in order to bash, and I'm not with TNA so I could care less about trying to be political, but in order to bash TNA, you have to watch TNA. So, as long as you are watching, I guess that's all that really matters. I mean, people complain all the time; People complain about Monday Night RAW all the time, but guess what, in order to complain they have to watch. SO, as long as you're watching, Vince McMahon will say 'I'm going to feed you what you want and you're going to like it.' And he said that on TV, and guess what; people keep coming back. So, it is what it is on that issue."
His WrestleMania match with the New Breed vs the ECW Originals: "I remember the match, obviously, I can't forget it because it was my first WrestleMania appearance; I did appear at WrestleMania 24, but that was in the battle royale they happened to put on the pre-show and I believe that was going to be a part of the pay per view itself, to have the winner face the (ECW) Champion, which was Chavo Guerrero at the time. But I hate to say that match doesn't matter, work wise the match means a lot because it was WrestleMania nut we didn't get a chance to do what we wanted to do or even have time to do anything with 8 guys. But it's the match that happened on ECW following WrestleMania, on ECW's telecast, where we had the Extreme Rules match, you know the Old School vs the New Breed. It's that match that I think all of us are really, really proud of, everybody that participated in that match. I mean, that was when Sabu took the head first through the table from the Elijah Express and tore his neck up. But I think that's the match we are all proud of because we were able to go out, and it was the main event, and truly work the way we wanted to at WrestleMania. So, we were very proud of that, I think. I know I am.
"But for all of us to make it on WrestleMania, we're extremely proud of that because it's a milestone and it's everyone's goal, well it should be everyone's goal in this business, to appear or be a part of WrestleMania. I don't care who you are, if you haven't made a WrestleMania, you haven't really lived as a wrestler; that's the ultimate goal."
