"I took myself away from wrestling for a while. A lot of people think when you're off you need to study wrestling nonstop. At that point in time, that was completely the wrong thing for me. The worst thing was being around wrestling. Such as, I had to go to WrestleMania this year and do a lot of signings and AXXESS, and I hated every second of it simply because I don't want to be at WrestleMania unless I'm there to compete. I really was working on my rehab and doing a WWE Studios film, "Dead Man Down," with Colin Farrell and Terrence Howard. That was a great thing to get involved with while I was out. But really, the whole time I was out, I was pretty furious about how things had happened."
