On his health status: "I was just released from the world famous Mayo Clinic Hospital just 2 days ago actually last Thursday from the flu which turned into double pneumonia, which is fluid in each lung and then congestive heart failure. I feel very good, excellent really. I'm back painting. (Doctors) told me about another 10 more days before I can get back in the gym."
On his comments toward CM Punk and Chris Jericho's reaction: "I know that Chris Jericho has never really cared for me, really basically from day one, but anyway I was very shocked (by his comments), I was just trying to make a observation of how things have evolved in professional wrestling with body types. I meant no harm or disrespect to CM Punk whatsoever because he's a hard worker and dedicated."
