His longevity: "I haven't aged. I've always taken care of myself and I'm a non-conformist, so I don't accept the negativity that comes with birthdays. I'm 42 but I feel way better than I did at 18."
Outlasting his peers after coming up: "In time, I thought eventually me and my peers would move up and take over the top positions. Now I look to my left, I look to my right, and all my peers seem to have dropped off. I never dreamed of putting myself on the level of the guys that I looked up to and I never thought that I would be world champion, but I was a show-off and I thought that I had something that I could bring to the business. Now all those guys are gone, and my celebrity, my status, has me at the top of the company. I get the loudest responses from the crowd and it's very rewarding."
