On Dolph Ziggler: "The fact that he's had a lot of success with the Intercontinental title, and winning the world title and the Money in the Bank, that's really cool. So if was not going to be me, I'm glad the next guy in line was Dolph."
On getting to appear at WrestleMania 22: "I remember just looking around at the Squad members and thinking, 'We made it to the dance. We made it to WrestleMania. [Shawn Michaels] said to us while we were down there, 'Welcome to WrestleMania boys.'"
On his future: "Unfortunately, WWE is not interested in me, but that doesn't mean I'm going to stop or going to quit. I'm just gong to keep going."
