Excitement for the launch of AEW and Official Title:
"So they call me “Head Coach” because we are trying to get away from what WWE uses. So I'm pretty much head of talent because a lot of these talented kids haven't really done live TV or haven't done TV, so they are going to need some guidance and stuff so that is where I come in and it is going to be awesome. You have some of the most and some of greatest talent on earth that has ever laced up a pair of boots in it and it is going to be awesome and like I can't wait for it to get going and for the people to start getting into it and realize how good it is actually going to be and it is going to be a lot of fun and it is going to be refreshing."
WWE Hall of Fame Induction:
"It is going to be great. It is going to be great to around all of those guys and you know I wish Chyna was there but she'll be there in spirit and I'll probably wear my little Chyna shirt under my tuxedo but it is going to be good and it is going to be awesome for the fans and it is going to be awesome for us because it just solidifies what we did in the business. We were really doing stuff just to have fun but it actually turned into being something that was awesome and obviously they are putting us in the Hall of Fame so that is cool too."
