“People think I was promised the belt. Vince never promised me the world title and he told me flat out, ‘If I put the belt on you and that’s the direction we go, I’d like to see that at WrestleMania 10 next Spring.’
“So Vince got Yoko and Taker in an angle, we did the DQ and Vince said, ‘If we can rev this thing back up for WrestleMania, then that’s the direction we go’ but Vince never promised me the title, never said, ‘You’re gonna be my guy.’ People all say that and think that but [that] was never the case behind the scenes with that whole thing.
“A lot of people thought maybe, he should’ve let me win in Detroit [at] SummerSlam  and beat me even a week later on Raw or something for the title and so I had, as a babyface, kind of had the win after the big build up but other than that, Vince never made any promises to that thing, contrary to what a lot of people think. People ask me that all the time.”
