On Asparagus the Wonder Dog: "He was legitimately my best friend. Every title I've ever won, I would always take a picture with Asparagus with the title and proclaim him the champion. He was a very special dog."
On Survivor Series: "You'll see me bring an energy and enthusiasm when I team with Punk against the Wyatts. It's a very different style matchup. The Wyatts are just big wild brawlers, while we're aerial, technical wrestlers. It's a grudge match, and we're not going to find out who the best wrestlers are. We're going to find out who the best fighters are, because this is definitely going to be a fight."
On how he got to WWE: "The reason I got to WWE was because I cultivated a skill-set and a name on the independents and internationally that warranted them wanting to bring me in. Even when they brought me in, I don't think they expected me to get to where I am now based on my size and personality."
