On Being Released: "If I'm not able to be out there and contribute I don't want to be there. If you're not going to bring it, then sitting around on the sidelines is not something I want to do. I was a little bit frustrated. This is where creative [was] in one of those funks where they don't know what to do. I probably could have handled it a little better but I'm one of those guys who, when I'm frustrated, do not get vocal."

On the Origins of 'The Funkasaurus': "I was like, 'Well it's different.' When something is put at you, when you've worked on something else for quite some time ... Once I was told the direction we were going, the Funkasaurus [name] I figured out with my trainer Rob, [Naomi and Cameron] were my pitch, and all I asked was could I see [Dusty Rhodes] and go down to the [NXT] school and figure it out .... It was a lot of support, and it wasn't a bad thing .... We kept running those vignettes of the juggernaut and the monster character so people had no idea what was going on. On this day of stooges and the Internet and all that kind of stuff it didn't get out."

Having his match pulled from WrestleMania XXIX: You're devastated. You're disappointed. You help your team get to the SuperBowl, then your coach, for some reason, doesn't call your number. You know, as it went down, they were fighting for every last minute .... I was standing in gorilla and I saw them look at the time and they were trying to figure out any possible way to get us out there. It's the nature of the business. It's just like that nightmare of running out onto the football field without your helmet .... You hate to be on the receiving end of it. It was what it was but it stung for a long time.

Other interview topics include Brodus' thoughts on being released, Alberto Del Rio, Vince McMahon, WWE politics, his plans for the future, and more.
