On the passing of Jon Huber (Brodie Lee/Luke Harper): Yeah, I was shocked. Friend of mine texted me and told me and I was like, ‘There’s no way’ and Jon, he was a very good guy. He was a sweetheart, just a good person. 2020 has been an awful year. First, Pat Patterson recently passed away, so it’s just been… it’s been a terrible year and this added to it. Like I said, Jon was just a great guy, had a wonderful family and I don’t know what else to say.

The Undertaker’s ‘Final Farewell’ segment that took place at Survivor Series: No, no, no. I was supposed to [be in ring gear]. Yeah, here’s the thing: Kane is Kane and despite different incarnations and all that, that was the reason for that because Kane and Undertaker I think, you know, pulled back the veil somewhat and sometimes we forget that. But that’s kind of what separates them I think from a lot of the other formers is the fact that they’re truly characters and I know people speculated [but] that was the plan all along so, some of those things I think sometimes people [begin] speculating and outthink themselves a little too much into it.

On his WWF Championship win at the 1998 King of the Ring pay-per-view: It was just awesome, I mean just awesome because [Steve] Austin was on a rocket ship going straight to the moon and just to be a part of all that, it was pretty amazing. Then of course, no one remembers that because that was the same night Mick [Foley] flew off the cage and went through the cage so to this day, I’m still pretty hot at Mick Foley because no one remembers I won my first world championship the same night he had the Hell In A Cell and went off of it twice. But anyway, it was a pretty amazing night.
