On becoming WWE Champion again and being part of a big storyline:
"It feels really good. I’m glad I can get another shot. Not to harp on the past or anything, but I’ve made a few bad decisions here and there, and this is my chance to prove not only to the fans but to the company that I can carry the ball and represent the company."
On if John Cena's injury opened up this new opportunity with WWE:
"I’m not saying that’s the sole reason, but it doesn’t hurt. They needed somebody, and they looked around and they go, ‘There’s our guy!’ It’s not like I said, ‘Hey guys, I got an idea.'"
