-- Bully Ray recently spoke about his current heel run, saying that he loves making audiences hate his character. "I get off on the fact that people hate me so much," he said. "I want you to look at me with distain, with anger and with hate. I want you to throw a brick through my car window, I want you to wish death on me." He also discussed his improved physical state, saying, "The thing I'm most proud of is that I've got myself into the shape I've got myself into. I did it the old-fashioned way, I didn't cut any corners. I've been busting my ass in the gym and with my diet."
