On Impact going live: "Well, it's not the end all be all, at the end of the day its being live and on the road and getting out of the studio atmosphere of course, but that's budget and an executive decision by the Carter family. If you want to be a billion dollar company you have to invest, and I still stand by that. I said to everybody at dinner one night. Russo leaving was very impactful because he was there for so long and he worked really hard and I have noticed the difference storyline wise since Eric Bischoff over rides the story with Eric. Nothing against what Vince Russo did, because he has his style, but what I have noticed with Eric is that storylines have a beginning middle an ending, unless I come in and screw them up. It's just across the board for some reason, everybody is on the same page and same team, oppose to before when everybody was up in the air a little more. For me it has been more consistent except for when I stick my nose in there every once in a while."
On the Aces and Eights reveal: "I'm not behind it, I'll tell you that much. Everyone keeps saying I'm behind it. Aces and Eights is huge man. We are trying not to copy the NWO, we're trying to be consistent, and we're trying to really raise the bar on this thing. We were in the trenches a couple weeks ago there was supposed to be a quick reveal and it was just going so good that we delayed the reveal. It should be big; we are really onto to something with this one."
