"I'd be lying to you if I said it doesn’t bother me because it was a storyline that I created and I knew it would work. The fans did get behind it and I'd look at Vince and be like this has really taken off and I am so happy and I'm so energetic about it. But again, I'd be lying to you if I said it didn't bother me because it did bother me. To win a singles title and be by myself on my own terms would have been amazing. It is what it is and you've got to just keep moving forward."


Finding out he was released after doing an appearance for the company while injured:


"I had just done media with them. I was at a basketball game and the next day on a Sunday I had got called up by (Mark) Carrano and he gave me my release. I thought it was surprising but I had already made the move from Tampa to L.A. in August and I had got released at the end of October so I kind of knew and I had a feeling in my gut that I know nothing lasts forever. My fight is much bigger than in the ring and that is why I continue out here in California and all over the world to do my advocacy work."
