You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his shots at Punk: “I got no heat with this guy. I’m just f**king around, man. After last week [aka Punk’s firing], let’s just milk this motherf**ker for as long as we can. We got 75,000 hits just from one right there.”
On his backstage altercation with Samoa Joe: “At that point, Joe and I were friends. And I understood his f**king disappointment and frustration over the fact that Scott no-showed… I walked up to him and asked him, ‘What the f**k was that? Was that from [Vince] Russo or yours?’ He smirked and said, ‘That was mine.’ So I f**king open-hand smacked him. He didn’t go down, but he didn’t say anything back, either, so I smacked him again. And he just looked at me.”
On Joe apologizing the next day: “Joe felt so bad about it that he went in front of all the boys and apologized — directly to me. He didn’t have to do that. But he was man enough to f**king realize that, ‘I did go into business for myself [with the promo].’”
