You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On returning to WWE: “To be honest, I haven’t talked to any of the administration. I did, when John Laurinaitis was around, we had a couple of phone calls. It didn’t go anywhere. What happened, happened. We have a new administration doing fantastic things. As far as I know, what I’ve read, the numbers, when it comes to ratings and money, it’s fantastic. The way the talent feels backstage and in the ring, it looks like this change has been for the best.”

On his relationship with John Laurinaitis: “I was always one of Johnny’s boys, he was the one that found me and brought me to have my tryout. He was the one giving me the call, bringing me to Stamford, showing me the headquarters, putting me in the limo. He was the one creating Alberto Del Rio. I remember those days with him taking me to the restaurant to meet Kevin Dunn and then bringing me to Vince McMahon’s office and introducing me. The rest is history.”
