On how he and Brock Lesnar became best friends: "The friendship came together when we got together professionally back in 2002 and realized just how similar our goals were both professionally and personally. On a professional level, we both want to be the absolute best at our craft. We will settle for nothing less than being at the top of our game at every appearance and we want to leave a legacy of being the single, solitary best in that particular role the industry has ever seen. On a personal level, nothing means more to either one of us than our children and we will fight to the death for our children. And everything that we do including everything we do professionally revolves around, is about and is regarding the love that we have for our children. So both professionally and personally as much as we are different, you're talking about a South Dakota farm boy that is a natural born predator and conqueror and a smart ass New York Jew boy who's the son of a personal injury attorney from the Bronx. But as different as we are culturally, we are in terms as professionally and personally, we are very much alike."

On being in the business for nearly three decades: "In many ways, it's all been a flash. I still remember being the kid in the locker room with all these radical ideas that would change the industry and had all these concepts and visions of things that have never been done before. And I think the only difference is now is I'm the old guy in the locker room that has these visions and these ideas of things that have never been done before that would be revolutionary and would change the industry. I think it's just the shell of a man that is different but I'm still the same person. I just approach it differently."

On what he will still like to do in the wrestling business: "Well, I would like to do things that I can't envision today. I look at the industry today and I understand all the many roles that I've played and can play and have had the opportunity to play but shouldn't someone who wants to revolutionize or evolutionize a business, shouldn't my goal be to figure out tomorrow something that was apparent to myself today? And shouldn't I want to look to do something two days from now that would never have been apparent to me tomorrow?"
