You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On being disappointed by his WrestleMania 33 match with Roman Reigns and getting to work with AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36: “I was so disappointed in my performance with Roman at that ‘Mania. I can give you one hundred excuses, ‘and my hip was this, and all that.’ But I am the one that made the decision to do it. So I would rather accept the consequences of that decision. But it was very gratifying to do something. One, it was special because I had always wanted to work with AJ. Although the original plan was to do it in a ring in a more conventional manner. To be able to share such a unique match, and go out with a positive, I think it was the best-case scenario for me.”
On how the match with Styles made him satisfied about the end of his career: “I don’t know if the match had been in a wrestling ring, although I was in great shape, and felt really good, and motivated. I think everything worked out the way that it should. And I left on an extremely high note, I was personally satisfied. That was what I was searching for those last few years. That one match that I could hang my hat on and say, ‘I’m done, I’m good, it’s time to go home.’”
On why he wasn’t a fan of the Higher Power storyline with Vince McMahon: “It was a huge storyline. I wasn’t a big proponent of the Higher Power being Vince, I thought it watered The Ministry down. Although then it led into me abducting Stephanie and all of that. So it all works out. Originally, I wasn’t real thrilled about The Corporate Ministry, that really felt watered down to me, and I felt like it kind of took away from what we were doing, although we got it back.”
