AJ and Big E being part of the Ziggler act: "As a mentoring role, it's been positive for Big E who was brand new. AJ, who's also been around and also like myself grew up as a big fan, so she's a real hardcore fan. Sometimes Divas come in from something else and their not into it. Big E wants to learn, AJ loves the business, and the part we can kind of spit back and forth and just learn and I can pass down things since I've been here for eight years and that part behind the scenes has worked out really well. When we've got in the ring we've had some fun. As a group though, we've cheated every week for four months and lost. We've gone into other people's matches and cheated and still lost the match somehow. I used to lose really well on my own and now I have three people that I'm responsible for and we're still losing. I don't understand this so we've been trying to take it up a notch and trying to make the best thing possible. We're trying to be like something special. After Wrestlemania, I feel like whether we have all the gold or not that we're going to go into something special and it's going to be our time there and if we get this much of a chance we will kill it. I will not let it be unsuccessful."
If he's nervous fighting at Wrestlemania with someone new to the WWE: "No it doesn't. I love it and I live for it more than anything but I've had talks with him 'Listen you're going to be nervous. You have to, if you're not nervous than you shouldn't be in this business walking out in front of 80,000 people and a million watching at home or whatever the deal is.' We've focused on something's and he's such a hard worker and such a good listener which I appreciate, not everyone does that and he is one of them. He has listened, he's listened to the crowd, and he's listened to me. He's listened to me and it's been great talking about it and when we get it done he's going to deliver. I think he's going to do, I'm sure, something amazing. He's one of the strongest guys in the world like for real so I'm waiting to see something special that he's going to bring out to show the world on his debut."
What Wrestlemania will he be the headliner: "I told myself three years ago that this one would be it. Apparently, my time charts are off with everyone else. I feel like if everything moves at the pace that it has that next year I'm in a very significant singles match and the year after that I'm in the main event of Wrestlemania and if I can do anything to help that I will and if there's things that are out of my control than it just might be. I can only give everything that I have and then some more out there and hope for the best."
If being featured on every Raw is any consolation: "It's some. I have to find a way to stand out and do my thing so sometime's on Monday Night Raw you have a minute and a half and we have to go to commercial break and then you're done and it's like how can I stand out? How can I give these fans every penny worthwhile in my match alone and I just find a way to do it. I am on pay-per-views, I'm on every show we have, and I do commentary on the Saturday Morning Show. I love it. I would do more if I could. I would wrestle twice a night if they would let me just because I love it so much so it's kind of consolation. I'm constantly in the public eye and being acknowledged for my work but at a point it feels like you're in somewhat of hamster wheel and the middle of the pack and there's so few guys on top and you want to find a way to get in there and get on top and actually as much as I hate Cena… I hate him, I hate everything he does. I hate how awkwardly he runs. I hate everything he does but being out there with him is such a special thing to learn and listen and that connection with the audience that no one else has. It's been years of build up but he has it and it's so great to learn from him and even once in a while if I have a match with someone else, I hate him and I don't talk to him, and I'll see him and he'll give me some little piece of advice and he's been there and done that kind of thing so I hate him but we need him so it's great. I wish we had five more Cena's but we don't."
Money in the Bank being both a great thing and a hindrance: "It has been because it used to be that this was the new Mr. Perfect with the Intercontinental Championship. This was like Oh here's our guy let's see where we're going with it. Like you can watch people and hope they stand out over the course of six months or a year or you can go this guy has that case I can't wait to see where he's going now and it has been a hindrance because at the end of the day it's like I guess Dolph can lose every single match because he has that briefcase. It just drives me to go at some point this has to get cashed in. Somebody is actually going to take it away from me before I get broke kicked in the face so this is going to get cashed in and whatever happens, I don't know what's going to happen, it's going to be special, it's going to be fun, and if something crazy happens when it's cashed in or on a big stage, I think it's something people will remember one way or another."
