On Concussions in Wrestling: "On Tuesday I was contacted by Bloomberg news for my opinion on CTEs and concussions in Pro Wrestling. It is a hot button issue in sports, and it's something that pertains to all of us who step into the squared circle. Personally I have had over a dozen concussions in my 21 year career as a pro wrestler. The concern is what happens to us after the cheers stop, and we are a shell of our former selves."
On Contemplating Suicide/One Year of Sobriety: "This week is a very special week for me. November 19th marks one year that I have been clean, & sober. I will never forget the days leading up to that decision. I was lost. I was sick, and many times I even contemplated suicide. I'm eternally grateful that I had the WWE to lean on. For years I was trying hard to get clean. I attempted several times to quit "cold turkey", but if you know anything about addiction, it doesn't work that way."
