If the door is open for a WWE return: "I don't think that that door ever really closes as long as you haven't done something heinous. Yeah I would be open for a return in the future. Either place. I'm 29. I feel like I'm really coming into my prime as a Performers and I look forward to what lays ahead. Wherever it's going to be. It's going to be very fun, very exciting. The best is yet to come."
Training under Bill DeMott and the recent allegations against him: "He's old school. I was with Bill DeMott from the day Deep South opened until the day that it closed. I guess you could say that I'm a Bill DeMott guy. I went in there at 21 years old. Off the independents for a couple of years, very green and Jody had told Bill to make me quit. We would go in there and we would squat and bump. I would do 500-1000 squats a day & run 2 miles. Bill would make me do all of these things and then when they saw that I had heart and I had guts and that I deserved to be there, they really nurtured me and took me under their wing. I do think that sometimes in the past, in recent years, it's been too easy for guys. The sexual harassment thing, the allegations, seem like complete rubbish to me. I don't believe any of that. I think that those are people who are weak and they don't want to work hard. I'm more thankful for things that I have got and received from Wrestling than I would have been if it had just been handed to me coming in. I still have that old school perspective. If people disagree with that then so be it."
His career highlight: "I guess if it were one singular thing it would be when I main evented Smackdown against The Undertaker. Being 24 years and being able to pull off that match. I was really proud of that. There were so many things after that. Being a part of Wrestlemania. Working with Rey Mysterio in Mexico. Just a lot of different things. Going to Budokan Hall for the first time in Japan. Wrestling Sting on PPV. There's just a lot of stuff that were really cool things for me that I'll always remember. Like I said, I really think the best is yet to come. My prime years are ahead of me so there's going to be a lot more of that stuff."
His future: "I think the possibilities are endless. There are different things and places on the table. I am going to land on my feet. I always feel like that. When I came out of WWE I had a great year and a half working overseas and independently. Earning a great living, getting to see places I wouldn't have got to have seen in a big company. It'll be a big company sooner or later."
