How tough WWE is: "I grew up playing baseball and football, and I was very successful at both of those. I've seen guys come in and try to do this and mentally and physically fall apart instantly. It is by far the hardest thing I've done in my life –– the things we put our bodies through in a day-in and day-out basis and the injuries we suffer.
"Anybody who questions the legitimacy of WWE, that's all you need to know. I literally broke my ankle in three places, and I kept running as my foot dangled and finished the match, whereas one of the premier NFL player fractures his ankle in one place, and goes down and he's done. The injuries are real, and the emotions we bring out are real –– it's the best form of entertainment that money can buy."
WrestleMania 29: "WrestleMania is the biggest event of the year for us. It's something you've got to see in person to see how magnificent it is. It's the culmination of a year of hard work. You've got the biggest matches and angles going into one night. It's a lot of fun –– a lot of excitement. You pack in anywhere from 50, 60, 70,000 people in an outside arena and it's just something you've got to see."
