On being Drew McIntyre’s first challenger:
You look back at my first title run in 2015, you mentioned the type of talent I was working with right out of the gate. Randy Orton, Kane, eventually John Cena, I learned a lot being in the ring with those guys. Obviously, I’d like to be the one to end Drew McIntyre’s title reign but at the end of the day, win or lose, he’s going to learn a lot from his first title run and the experience he gets from working with, hopefully, people like myself who are able to bring out the best in him.
On HIAC being the genesis of his Monday Night Messiah transition:
At the end of the day, there’s no real nice way to put it, I was dead in the water after Hell in a Cell. A lot of that was nothing that I could control. I was left out there as a bit of a scapegoat in that situation and there was nothing I could do about it, but I was the one that had to face the scrutiny. Nobody really cared about me at that point in time, or about how I was feeling or about what really went into that moment, that night and everything that went along with it. So, the writing was on the wall at that point. It was time to hunker down and make some changes, and some of those are tough lessons to learn.
Seth ended the interview by saying there is no point in lamenting in the past and it was time to move on so he could figure out what he was going to do about it.
