On when he began talking about a WWE return: “The action of it started the week of, I think, Thanksgiving… I’d have to look at a calendar to figure out dates exactly. I remember times and places of where I was when I would get phone calls and such. And I had a CFFC show coming up, I think. So I got a call from Nick Khan, and he was just like ‘Hey, we want to talk to you.’ And I was like ‘Cool. [I’m] on my way to the gym, and I have this coming up. CFFC, I’ll be back.’ ‘Cool, you want to talk Monday?’ ‘Great.’

“So it was the week of Thanksgiving. I spoke to him Monday…The call, I’m always so nervous about pulling the curtain back on stuff, but I think the call was more about ‘Hey, we want to talk about you coming back. We’d love you for Royal Rumble.’ Cause they assumed that I probably had some sort of noncompete or something like that, and were kind of floored when I was like ‘No man, I’m ready to go. Let’s do it.”

On mending fences with Triple H: “It’s funny because everyone calls him Paul [now] … I always call him Triple H or Hunter. When I spoke to him, that’s when the ball really got rolling, you know? Cause it was a very … I asked him if he wanted to talk on the phone, and he said ‘No. I would actually rather kind of like to face-time you, so I can see you.’ And I was like ‘Oh, that’s interesting.’ We just talked about a whole lot of stuff, and about stuff that was at one point serious to probably both of us … that is silly now. And we just kind of laughed and buried the hatchet. And then we started talking business.”
