"The main element that's different from any other match is there's a higher risk of losing without actually losing because unlike other matches, it's not actually formatted to where you have to beat a guy one-on-one, which usually for me, is my forte. I'm able to beat a guy one-on-one. In this case, the elements are different, the rules are different. It's obviously a very dangerous match, most people can see that. With having the scale, the structure, and having to retrieve the title, but the biggest difference is you can effectively lose without being involved in the finish of the match which is really the tough thing."
"This might be kind of an unprecedented thing, I don't know if I've tracked the history but being in there with four guys who are all specifically former World Champions is a pretty big position to be in, especially with me coming in as the lead guy, as the titleholder. Of course I feel like I have to step up my game; it's one of those things where, it's cliché to say, but rise to the occasion. That's really not any more apropos than right now."
Manik also discussed who he think is his biggest threat in the match:
"I used to think it was going to be Samoa Joe but now I wonder if he can even get up the structure. He might endanger my health more so than my title. I would probably say, maybe a guy like Austin Aries, because he's got such a high IQ and he's such a crafty guy in the sense of finding ways to get done what he needs to get done and there's never just one way that he takes to do it."
