"Here's a guy that has a huge ego. He has a hard time with putting anybody over and let alone outside the business when someone like Brock Lesnar would have to hurt him. His ego wouldn't let him walk around in a sling. He wants people to know it's entertainment unless he's the one doing it then he wants you to walk around in a leg cast. This is what I see the problem is and I've been pretty critical about it. You've got somebody in that position that's got too big of an ego to run a company like that. Hunter goes to extreme lengths to look good, to be big and cut and make sure he's on the cover of the muscle magazine and make sure he's in fitness things. He's the guy who's putting himself in the forefront. For anybody to run a company like the WWE, you can't be that guy. You've got too much talent out there for you to put yourself out there in front of them."
WWE not using UFC to help promote Lesnar when he returned in 2012:
"I could easily tell you what happened. Triple H happened. You go in there, you take a guy with his stature, his tremendous ability, the limited experience he had in the MMA world and yet he still went in and beat a lot of world title guys. He goes in and Hunter has a match with him and knocks him out with one punch. I think it's pretty clear what happened. There's a lot of ego involved with guys running the organization. It's a shame too, I mean I don't know who's pulling the strings.
"I wouldn't think it's Vince, maybe it is, maybe he's changed his mindset. The thing I noticed with Vince was Vince didn't care when someone came in, it was about ratings. It didn't matter what the organization looked like because he could always somewhere down the line get the organization to look good from an angle. But to come in there and actually have him (Lesnar) destroy people from the MMA world. I think that Vince, his mind thought is yeah I mean come on I control this guy. I could have him come in here and crush 20 guys in a row, build up for a big PPV match then have John Cena or Visit Wrestling Inc.The Rock or The Undertaker or somebody come in and have this big payday and have them beat Brock Lesnar and now you're back on top again. It didn't make sense for you not to tuck your ego away for a while and build this guy so it was that. You have control over the final storyline. You have the pencil in your hand, so you can write the ending to this story however you want."
