On facing Randy Orton at SummerSlam: "I'm ready to go. I'm tired of waiting. I feel good [about the match]. I wrestle five to six times a week and [the matches are] all by myself, so my engine's ready to go. I'm running on pretty much full cylinders here. It's just about getting out there and doing it now, but I couldn't be any more ready than I am."
On getting stitches after his recent match with Kane: "[The staples] were good to go the next night. The staples are out [now]. It's funny, because when they get ready to go, they get a little bit sore. With them being sore, I was still dumb enough to hit them from time to time. I actually almost pulled one of them out. That would have set back the healing process."
On his WWE character: "When you're in a spot that I'm in -- or even higher, the spot I aspire to be in -- not only do you have to talk, and [sometimes] open up 'RAW,' or even close it down [with] talking, or somewhere in the back [cutting a promo], there's a good bit of talking involved. Personally, for my character, I started as the silent but deadly type. Sort of a badass, not have to say too much. [Now] it progresses from week to week. But when you're in that type of spot, it's not only what you're doing on [WWE TV], it's doing different stuff. You have to do different opportunities where you have to do different stuff. Those are the things I enjoy. Everybody wants to be on top. Everybody wants to ascend, to be the top guy. So they start doing all the stuff that they have to do. Not everybody wants to be busy every single day. I'm that guy. I'm a workhorse. I'll take anything and everything I can get and I'll do it with a smile on his face."
