That’s up for discussion I think; there are a lot of great performers out there.

On WWE pursuing talent outside the United States:

“That’s a good thing, and WWE sees that and knows that they need to have something in the UK and Mexico and stuff like that. They recognize that there is other talent out there and it doesn’t always come from the United States. I’m very proud.”

On the support of UK crowds:

“I can’t speak for the rest of the guys but there is a reason why I’ve been over to the UK so many times! It’s such a great crowd there and it feels like just yesterday that I wrestled there [just before joining WWE] and told the UK crowd that if there was a spot for me at the Royal Rumble, I’d go and kick tail for them.”

“WWE does a good job of making sure we help not just the US community, but the world. I’m excited to get back to Manchester and to put some smiles on faces.”
