SummerSlam match with Goldberg:
"As a kid, I was a fan. I get what he does, I know his emotions, I know his excitement, I know that he is a caged bull that will be all over the place shooting smoke out of his nose when he's coming after you and just know for a fact that I know that everyone is talking about this match. Half of the people online are telling me that you're going to be dead in ten seconds and the other half is going with, well I don't know man, if someone can pull off the win maybe it's Dolph. I've made an entire career out of the entire world saying maybe he can do it right now and guess what? I've got a lot of shooter skills in my back pocket that I plan on using and I don't think he's going to be ready for it and I am really looking forward to this match and I know everyone is talking about it. Once again, I've done my part and we are not even there yet."
Is it extra pressure to have a special match?
"Of course. It might sound cliché, but I've said this for like six years that I'd come to the back after a match and it might not have been the championship match or might not have been the marquee match or might not have been the draw match of someone coming back but I would come to the back and say FOLLOW THAT. People talk about that like it's a joke, I used to say that and kick over cases of water and beg to be in the main event or beg for the main event to try and follow the match that I just had. So, it is not just now that I am the guy, I've been that guy that is ready to go, and we just haven't chose to go with me. If you think that that doesn't make the chip on my shoulder ten times bigger than anyone else in this business, you are quite mistaken. I look forward to a challenge and I look forward to thirty seconds to see if I can out do a main event but now I've got my hands-on Goldberg and just know that one way or another, no matter what happens I will make that so damn special that people are not going to forget about it. They are going to be talking about it the next day."
