"I think it would bring prestige back to the title, again. Dolph Ziggler did that, it was a big deal when I won it. It put some stock in the title."
He also said that by the end of 2012, he wants to be in contention for the World Title.
"In January 2011, I was a nobody on Raw at best. By the end of 2011, I was U.S. Champion. By December 2012, I want to be wrestling for the World Heavyweight Championship."
