On his release: “I was surprised, because we were pretty well booked on everything. We were on a lot of the live events, a lot of the overseas tours. We were always on Raw and Smackdown, and if we weren’t, we would do Superstars or Main Event in the week. So yeah, I was surprised.”
On his plans for the future: “I want to keep wrestling. I’m still young and I would like to go back to WWE someday and accomplish things that I never got to do, work with people that I never got to work with.”
On working with Drew McIntyre: “Me and Drew are taking bookings together. Yeah, there is a lot of interest because we’re fresh off TV, and we were tag teaming on TV, and we spent a fair amount of TV time together. There’s no limit. We want to wrestle everywhere, all over the world. We’re excited, both young and hungry. We both want to work our tails off and some day, one day, get back to the WWE.”
He added that he hopes to show fans a side of himself that he wasn’t able to show in WWE. He said he’s open to appearing in Ring of Honor or New Japan Pro Wrestling.
