The emotional, true to life story he just had with Sami Callihan:
"I thought it was very cool. I thought it was a fresh, not new but certainly fresh for professional wrestling to see such a personal angle like that which had so many truths to it. To go out there and perform with a guy like that and to have so much on the line. Everybody knowing all the personal aspects just draws people in and made it so much more intense and made it feel so much more real. I enjoyed it. I loved it!"
On the emotional promo he cut at the oVe Compound:
"I'm very comfortable with that. People don't expect me to be so articulate or be able to show that certain side that so many have been able to show. But, when you give Rich Swann the opportunity, I'm going to show you what I'm all about. I'm all about entertaining. I'm all about giving people the best show they could possibly watch. When I get those chances, I really pour out my heart and soul. You're definitely going to see more of that side of me."
