"Now I'm the old bastard walking the hall. I look at these young kids and, I don't know. Someone needs to step up. Get over. Figure out how to put asses in seats and not worry about your next high spot. Figure out, 'how the hell can I be different. How the hell can I make money?' That's the business. The young generation thinks that if they go out and do a certain move and they do it over and over, that's not the business. There is a good guy and bad guy like Holyfield and Tyson, mega heavyweight, pitting people against each other, storylines. That's what was fun about me coming back this time, the storyline with Roman Reigns and being with Paul Heyman for 15 years. "
