"I lost to the Godfather and this was a waste of my time. I'm done. The writer at that time was Tommy Blacha at the time and he said: 'Listen, before you go to Vince, I have to say something.' I said: 'There is nothing you can say that's going to change my mind.' He said: 'You're going to win the World Title tonight.' And that changed my mind. You just got to hold on and Eddie Guererro's told me that his dad used to say: 'The cream will always rise to the top. If you can wrestle, you will always have a job and you will get to the top.' I still believe that. Whatever kind of politics or dipsy doodles may happen, all you got to do is keep performing to the best of your ability and sooner or later you are going to get that shot.
Thoughts on Shawn Michaels getting back in the ring: "Honestly knowing Shawn (Michaels), I don't think so. That's my opinion. He could but you look at the way he went out, in one of the greatest matches of all time at WrestleMania in the main event with this huge reception. The performer of Shawn Michaels caliber and his ego, and I say that in a good way because we all have egos, he is not going to come back for anything for less than that. I don't think you are going to get anything bigger than that. Undertaker versus Shawn Michaels, in my opinion, were the two greatest matches ever. What can compare to that? My gut feeling says no, of course I don't know but if you ask me, I'd say no.
"The reason why Taker and Shawn worked is that you have two guys that are on the same exact level, iconic performers that no one can really touch. Maybe Shawn versus Triple H is something that maybe they would do but I don't think that's even big enough. I think that door is closed for Shawn and I think he is happy doing what he is doing and I think that's the same for Steve Austin. I think he very satisfied with his career, I don't think he feels the need to comeback. Sometimes it happens. As much as the wrestling fans demand it, sometimes if you feel that you did everything that you wanted to do and you're happy, then why mess with it."
Thoughts on the Big Show being the most exciting that he has been: "I only know from what I read in the reports. I haven't had the chance to watch a lot of the shows because I have been busy on the road and I find with the Big Show has been around for so long and has performed at the highest level in some many different angles, in so many different personas, I think he is one of the most taken for granted performers in the history of the WWE. He can do anything, he can have a great match every single night but when he is motivated, he goes to a totally different level.
"I think all you have to say to Show is that: 'You are going to be involved in the main event storyline (Randy) Orton and Hunter and I think that's all that Show needs to turn it up some more. I think that Show at eighty percent is better than eighty percent of the roster. But when he is motivated, there are not a lot of performers that can touch him. I think he is very underrated. I think he is taken for granted by the fans and by the company. If I was going to start my own wrestling company, Big Show would be in the top 5 easily, easily, and easily."
