A possible role at WrestleMania XXX:
“I wrote a quick note to the WWE saying if you don’t give the fans, what they deserve, the two guys that started it, just let them walk out, you know as more to thank them. I’m not there to have people cheer for me, I’ve had my share of that and I’m very grateful. But to have Hogan in the ring and not hit the bagpipes, the fans would never forget it. Not to give them that, to give them that to remember for the rest of their lives as would we, being Hogan and myself, who I’ve not talked to, I think would be a mistake. This is 30 years; we started with a thing called War to Settle The Score. The promoter put his house and everything up on a tag team match called WrestleMania, no number. I was definitely the dark horse in the race. 30 years later I think that we should say hello, but I don’t think the WWE’s with me, I don’t know what they want to do. But it’ll tell me, if I don’t come out it’ll probably be the last time.”
Pitching an idea to WWE to work with Drew McIntyre :
“I think that the organization thinks that I will breed rebel into these kids, and that’s not true. It’s just what I had to do to survive for my family. That’s the only reason, I can’t figure out another one. The kid Drew himself went to them, I went to them, they ended up taking the kilt off of him and making him some kind of a, I’m not sure what he is. He’s a great kid though.”
“We didn’t know we would complement each other so well. Everything from what we wear, entering through the crowd, even the triple power bomb in itself, it’s clicked and been so organic. That’s been the most exciting part. We spend so much time together; we’ve jumped the friend stage in the past year and a half and become brothers.”
“The faces will always change, the styles will evolve. I respect what people before me have done, but my time is now.”
Does he dream of headlining WrestleMania?
“Every single day somebody just asked me if I would like to take on the Undertaker and beat his (WrestleMania) streak. I would rather retain the WWE world heavyweight championship while taking out the streak. My motivation is to be the best. I have a deep responsibility to leave things better than the way I found them. I don’t want to live off potential, so the first thing I have to do is capture the gold.”
