On his feuds: "I really liked the Daniel Bryan feud. We've had so many matches. Don't get me wrong, the feud I have with Big Show has been unbelievable and a lot of fun and each feud is special because you learn and you grow from each one. I guess I've kind of enjoyed them equally, but with Bryan, the way it sparked off was a great experience because we had the emotion from the crowd. It's hard to pick, man. This one with Big Show has definitely been an experience for me."
On his pale complexion: "In Ireland, I shaved my head and tanned because I thought that's what you were supposed to do to be a WWE Superstar. Then I realized, why should I try to look like everybody else when I have a unique look myself. So I stopped doing that and just started being me."
On his goal to be a WWE lifer: "I've become a lot more relaxed since I've first started. I didn't want to be one of those people who came into the WWE and went through a revolving door and was gone six months later. I was determined to make an impact, to give everything I have, 110 percent... I think I've earned a little bit of respect in WWE universe and that's why they stopped booing me and started cheering me, but they could easily turn on me again tomorrow."
