WWE’s hiring of Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman:
"I think everyone is pretty excited. Obviously there are some pretty well publicized changes within the company and honestly I don't know much more than anyone that reads the internet knows. I kind of get the news around the same time that everybody else does (there's a shocker for you) everyone thinks I am in on it. People get mad about storylines and send me mean tweets and I'm like, well I didn't write it and only saw it when you did but there is definitely a little bit of an internal buzz and obviously they are external sources that is everyone is talking about. It’s in a weird way kind of re-invigorated the locker room and hopefully that is the starting of something cool that is going to permeate inside the entire company. I know that the boys and girls that bust their ass every night all around the world that they are fired up now and it is exciting to see and it’s obviously a small change and it is going to take time and take a lot of effort but hopefully yes, in a short answer it is the change of something and I don't have any cool scoops to give you or any ideas of what those changes will be but I know that we've got the biggest collection of talent that we've ever had and some of the most incredible workers you'll ever see and it is just a matter of turning a few things around and getting everybody back on the same page. I know it is kind of or sounds like I am giving you the PC answer that is is not for lack of wanting on any part. I think in a way the company has gotten so big and we've gotten so much content that it is easy for what you would think to be major issues to be lost as details and it can't really fully be explained until you’ve seen the place from within but it’s all still the same. Nobody ever complains and says we aren't going to try anymore or this doesn't really matter and that's never been the case but I think now there is sort of a microscope on us with all the changes in the business as a whole that is has kind of reinvigorated everybody and everyone is being very receptive to suggestions and again it is not going to change overnight but I think that I've been around this business for over half my life and there definitely is a buzz. I can't put my finger on it and I can't tell you exactly what it is but the atmosphere is different right now and I am hoping and have my fingers crossed that is is for the good of not only the company but for the business as a whole and the fans everywhere."
