This pretty much confirms what we've been exclusively reporting - Beth Phoenix was unhappy with the way she was being used and decided to leave WWE.

* He is dating Beth Phoenix, who left WWE last month.
* Although doctors say he will never be cleared to wrestle again, he says he would want to face Christian or "Stone Cold" Steve Austin if he could have one more match.
* He said that something that goes unnoticed when thinking about his history of neck injuries is the impact on his body that the Spear had.
* When asked if the TLC matches were the reason he retired, he replied: "That and the spears over the years."
