Life as the former Impact Wrestling champion:
"Yes I am. Ouch. It still stings to hear "former" Impact champion."
On the Rebellion pay per view as a whole:
"A lot of positives. Everyone that watched it thought it was a great event with the exception of one thing. That is that meat-head Brian Cage walked out with my title. That doesn't sit too well with Johnny Impact!"
If he knew Brian Cage was injured after the Spanish Fly spot:
"I was pretty aware. I guess you can't take the championship from Johnny Impact without leaving something. So, Brian lost the use of his back, spinal fluid, and the realignment of his vertebrates. I was surprised. I didn't expect that. But, I guess machines do break. That is part of what a machine is, what a human is, what a wrestler is.... Nobody is above injury. In the moment, it was shocking for me. In the moment, I started thinking how I could change my strategy. I tried a couple of things. It ended up going not exactly how I thought it was going to go. "
