How Zeb Colter became his manager: "It's a cool story. We were a couple weeks out from the Elimination Chamber in 2013. And we were in Nashville for a Raw TV taping, and Zeb lives in Nashville, and we knew we wanted another character to go along with the storyline. Triple H had an idea to bring him in, and he came in. He started discussing some ideas, and he did a couple promos on tape and Vince and Hunter just loved it. It was very meant to be. He already had the mustache and fit the character to a T."
How Antonio Cesaro became a "Real American" and his tag team partner: "Antonio is a great competitor, a great technical wrestler and a very smart individual to go along with it. He immigrated to the United States the correct way: filling out the right paper work and paying his taxes. And as a Real American that's all we ask for. He's an example of what we want all immigrants to do in this country, storyline wise.
"I injured my hand; I severed two tendons in my thumb back in May. So I was off TV for a little bit, and Antonio came along. And him and Zeb had a real good bond. The rest is history. I came back from surgery, and we're off to the races. We have great rapport with each other, work very well with each other and complement each other very well."
If his future is in singles or tag team wrestling: "Both. I love tag team wrestling. I love working with Zeb and Antonio, I think we're a great team. Singles is a lot of fun too. I think deep down I'll always consider myself a singles wrestler. But tag team wrestling is a whole different animal, and I love the challenge of it, I love being the heel and getting away with stuff behind the ref's back. Just the extra two people in the ring brings a different dynamic to the match that anything could happen. And it really intensifies things and really forces you to stay focused and keep your head on a swivel. Because you never know what could happen in a tag team match, which is very exciting in my eyes."
