On the youth movement in TNA: "We’ve moved to a new era. We looked to others to run things before. They wouldn’t pull the trigger on the young talent. You put yourself into a spot. If you don’t do it fast enough, people won’t buy into it. In transition, you have to make it real. There’s only one left. It’s a definitive moment."

On joining the Main Event Mafia: "They (TNA officials) said go get some suits. That’s not really in me. It meant you’re next and it absolutely turned out to be true. I loved it. It was cool to get to run around with Kurt, (Samoa) Joe. It gives you credibility. You’ve got to do your best to progress. It’s one defining thing ... do or die. Screw up and you go back down."

On the difference between house shows and TV tapings: "For a fan experience, a house show is more personal. You’re restricted by time on TV or a PPV. You work for the camera, not for the people. House shows are our bread and butter. We let it go. The people have fun. For 21⁄2 hours, it’s the best entertainment. Action, surprise and comedy."
