On his successful run since returning to WWE: “When you grow up wanting to play quarterback, you work for it and envision it, but experiencing it is almost out of body. I’m very lucky. I’m a slow learner, but it feels like I have found clothes that fit: the American Nightmare’s clothes.”
On Sting’s retirement: “The last match I was offered in AEW was that match [against Sting]. It wasn’t confirmed or anything like that, but just the little I had to do with his debut there is a wonderful memory. I was a little Stinger. Maybe I’ll pull out a Stinger Splash in his honor. Seriously, cheers to a wonderful career.”
On teaming with Jey Uso: “Jey has been a superb teammate. I need to ask him what inning we are in.”
