"Honestly, I knew about as much as you guys did about the whole process, to be honest with you. I was already frustrated and the walls of communication had already broken down between me and creative. I don't think anyone really benefited from that angle. It was just confusing. It was just one of those things, and obviously it led to the release. It was just weird. The only good thing was that I got to get my hands on R-Truth, and getting a chance to work him, and my match with him was one of my favorites that I've had in a while, so I enjoyed that very much. But I didn't get a chance to have a big feud and I think the fans were confused and they felt that I was robbed. It was a weird kind of deal."
He also talked about doing dolphin activism in Japan:
"If you haven't seen the movie "The Cove," please check it out. It's an Academy Award winning documentary. There is a slaughter that goes on every year there where they herd dolphins behind a cove and they take the ones they are going to bring to Sea World and all of the other amusement parks around the world, and then the ones left over are slaughtered and sold for meat which is really a horrible thing. Next to us, the dolphin is the most family-oriented and intellectual animal on the planet. Their families are stronger than ours and their intelligence is still being measured. There's just no reason for it. So we're going out there to educate and get more eyes of the world to see that this is something that doesn't need to be happening... I'm a typical guy. I eat meat, I eat steak, but at the same time there are certain things that just don't make sense."
