If Kofi vs. Cesaro this week on Main Event upped the status of the show: "Anytime you can see something, I thought I was so brilliant when I vertical suplexed Rey Mysterio from the second rope and held him there. It was trumped, I though incredibly last night when Cesaro superplexed a man who wasn't on the buckle. His feet were on the apron and he was still able to pull him in and do it. It was just hands down, hard to beat. When you look at guys competitively and say alright, I'm going to go out there and top this, which is what we want to do, that one was tough."
What's next for him, finishing stuff with Tons of Funk and teaming with Sandow, or singles wrestling: "That's what I don't understand about Tons of Funk. We don't have any business with Tons of Funk. I think in the situation where we're supposed to be the bad guys, hell, half the time Brodus is making fun of me and Tensai is bullying folks around. So, we don't have any business with those two other than just doing our best to incredibly supersede them in the ring. I think for me it will be, this year is rather pivotal as far as what happens next. I had all the momentum in the world as the Intercontinental Champion going into Wrestlemania 28. This year I didn't have all the momentum in the world. It wasn't a bad year, or anything like that. That's, to me, unacceptable. I want to move forward, heading into Wrestlemania 30, as the same guy that everyone said okay, these are the two. Dolph Ziggler and Cody Rhodes. They're the future. Well, we're kind of reaching the future. So it's my job now. It's no one else's job to be speculative or analytical. It's my job now to do what I did Monday, maybe on the winning side, and keep going. I think the fans, who ultimately dictate everything that we do, are the ones who have watched me grow up in front of them from undersized and underwhelming to one of the most well rounded performers we got."
