If his famous family members (ie: The Rock, Afa and Sika of the Wild Samoans, Rikishi, The Usos, etc.), helped influence his wrestling style:
My natural movement, it's hereditary I'll say. We all are able to move and do pretty athletic things. My family is the majority of the influence, but going down to FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling, now NXT – WWE's developmental program) and wrestling all of those guys down there – Dr. Tom Prichard, Joey Mercury, Bill Demott, Norman Smiley, Steve Keirn. Even to this day, talking to Triple H and with all of these resources we have here. When it comes down to it, I try to create a different style. A little more brutal. You can watch fight scenes or MMA and see how they move. There have been a lot of things that influenced me, but I can only be me. That's what I try to focus on, making everything my own.
His favorite moment so far:
I have to say WrestleMania. I look around and there are guys who have never performed on that stage. Just to say that we did that our very first year and opened the show. That's a big deal for all three of us. There are a lot of cool moments we have had. When we wrestled The Undertaker, Kane and Daniel Bryan in London (during a recent European tour) – there's a shot of us flying in on a helicopter. What some people don't know is that we did a live event earlier that day. We opened that show and then we jumped on a helicopter and flew all the way to London. We went out there and wrestled three of the biggest stars of all time. The next night, we put (The Undertaker) out. That was a surreal moment. WrestleMania and working with The Undertaker are phenomenal moments that I won't forget for the rest of my life.
If he took notes on the Spear from watching Edge and Goldberg:
Even to this day, watching matches, I don't watch the maneuvers. I feel like I am athletic enough to do any maneuver. It's not the moves, but what you do between them. The mannerisms are where the money is. A spear is a spear. I'd like to think that I deliver the best one ever seen, but that's up to the fans to judge. It did help playing football all of those years.
What he has planned for 2014 and the recent dissension with Dean Ambrose:
As far as The Shield – for the past 13 months, it seems like we've done it all. People are going pretty nuts about what we've done, but there's so much left to do. Whether we're working together or fighting each other, there's just so much more to see. It's going to be the year of The Shield, whether we're together or not.
