On whether he dislikes John Cena's character: "No, here's the thing. I think John Cena is tremendous. I don't think Cena gets the credit for how hard he works. 'I don't dislike you, John, but this idea that you're the best and you're afforded all of these opportunities.' I don't hate John at all. He's actually one of my favorites to get in the ring with."
On the Rock: "I'm glad he's back. He came back for Survivor Series and people saw me steal the show, so it's a business thing. I'm pissed off that I'm the only one who's pissed off. I'm like, 'Come on guys, don't you have any pride in what you do?'"
On whether there was a plan for the anonymous Raw GM: "Yeah, but I don't want to say it who was. The thing got built up so much that there might have been only, maybe two people who could have done it justice. Nothing would have done it justice. It just kept going and going."
On Alberto Del Rio: "The poor guy is a victim of the system. See, I think he's great. He should have won at WrestleMania, that's the thing. It's happened to me before - and our company is notorious for doing it - where they cut the throat of the young guy once it a while. Not even once a while, but too often."
On his current state of health: "I'm not hunched over or in crippling pain, but I'm beat up."
