On rehab: "The company had sent me to rehab several times, but you're only going to get clean when you're ready to get clean. I thought that I had done so much damage here that I would never be welcomed back."
On apologizing to those he felt he had wronged: "A year ago, when I came to WrestleMania, I had been clean for about six months. I just wanted an opportunity to look at the people I felt like I had done wrong. I held resentments against people up here because I thought it was their fault that I wasn't working here."
On his return to WWE: "I'd say about a year ago, the window of opportunity started to open. Then, about six months ago, the door swung wide open - and here I am."
