AL.com recently interviewed Bray Wyatt, who was promoting last night's SmackDown Live at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham. Below are a couple of highlights:

His calf injury in Milan this past April:

"I can only speak for myself, obviously, but this injury that happened to me, I was in Milan, Italy. My calf just exploded, man. I really felt like I was on fire. Maybe even more so than they already had, people really started getting behind me and understanding what I was really and truly about. When I went down, I remember sitting there and thinking to myself, "Why me?" I felt as if God was punishing me. And as I sat there for a couple of months in misery and just thinking about where I was going to go when I came back, it put a lot of things in perspective for me. It helped me realize the values that I have and the objectives that I want to accomplish. It kind of gave me laser focus. Throughout my career, when I was at my most miserable, I have always become my most focused and dangerous. I feel like I'm already at that point again right now to where it's make-or-break Bray Wyatt time. I want it all. That's where my head is at. That all came from."

His relationship with Vince McMahon:

"Vince McMahon is not a human being. They don't make people like Vince. Vince is Vince. I can't even describe to you what it's like being in a room with Vince McMahon. He is above man. That's the best way I can put it. Like-minded people take over the world, so I've always had a great rapport with him."

Bray also discussed injuries in wrestling, playing football at Troy University, his entrance and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
