A few quotes from the interview:
How it felt to move up one match WrestleMania XXVIII and then lose in 18 seconds?
“It was disappointing . I’ve always tried to go out there and steal the show… I’ve always tried to go out there and put on the absolute best match possible… That’s what has gotten me to where I’m at…I was really looking forward to all those extra viewers watching WrestleMania. It seems when you go out there and have a great match at WrestleMania that’s better than having a great match on any other show of the year. I was really looking forward to it, so for that to happen it was deflating…” PLUS the positive thing about losing that quickly.
His comments on the American Dragon mask he wrestled with on and off up until 2008:
“It was a pain on my peripheral vision, and the whole mask thing is just kind of bizarre. It followed me on and off throughout my career, so I started with the mask because, as a human being when you just meet me, I’m kind of dull. [laughs] And I say that in the nicest way possible. I don’t have crazy facial expressions when you talk to me, or anything like that.”
