If he comes up with challenges on the show: "No, but they pitch [the challenges] to me. Run them all by me and then I put in my creative two cents and that's all it's worth is two cents. But then it kinda goes back to the wrestling business, when it came time to my storyline I was good at putting the salt and pepper on the main points that would make it that much better. It's better to season a part of a steak rather than grab a whole steak, so I do have my input, but by in large you have some really talented people putting these [challenges] together for these rednecks."
If 'Redneck Island: All Stars' will ever happen: "I've been hearing that on my twitter. I get asked that a lot. Do I know if that will happen, right now talking to you? No. We need a couple more seasons in order for that to happen, but is there a possibility for something like that to happen down the road."
Getting back to the gym after his surgery: "Right now I haven't been workin' out too much. I had a few set backs, but to answer your question [I work out] usually 5-6 days a week. Normally, I'm in there for about an hour and if things are going well I will add in 30 mins of cardio. I live about 2 miles from Gold's [Gym]. I've been training there for many years, but I started training at a little hole in the wall place when I was healing up my shoulder a couple year's ago."
The most surprising thing from doing Redneck Island: "One of the things that was interesting ...man these people, [the contestants], are so nice. You're used to other reality shows where people are practically stabbing knives at each other, ready to just do anything to win and it's been different with these people. They have been friendly with each other and that's just kinda the way people from the country are."
