Cashing in his briefcase at SummerSlam:
“‘SummerSlam’ is the biggest party of the summer… I’ll wait until the end of the night to see who the champion is going to be. It will be a surprise. I think it is my moment. I think I am going to try.”
Losing his mask when he came to WWE:
“It’s better that way. People can see the emotions, they can see what we are feeling in the moment. I really want people to feel what is going on in the ring … Yes, the drama.”
