WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view and his Best of 7 Series finale against Sheamus. Below are highlights:
The Series with Sheamus: "I do love this kind of program. It's not often we get the chance in WWE to do something like that. To me, it's the closest to the old days when it was all about the wrestling, all about me against Sheamus in the ring without anything on the outside. It has this real sports feel. I kind of had my back against the wall, you know, it's best-of-seven. I do definitely love it."
"I think over my career, if you look at it in WWE, Sheamus has always been one of my biggest adversaries and one of the ones I would like to say I had some very memorable bouts with. It's definitely fun to be in the ring with him."
His path to a top title in WWE: "For me it's a little bit of a different road. But if there are mountains to climb, I think as a Swiss man you're the proper mountaineer to do it. So that's something I'm looking forward to."
Undeservedly being stereotyped as a poor talker: "I actually can talk if you let me. That's always funny, because people always say that I can't, but the thing is, you haven't seen me on the mic a lot. I don't really get that many chances. And if I do, it's usually pretty good. Certain people get maybe a reputation, and people keep repeating it, and that just becomes their stigma. I'm not saying I'm 'Mr. Microphone' over here, but I can certainly hold my own. I've been fortunate enough to get the chance to prove it lately, and I'm looking forward to getting to prove it some more going forward. The guys who talk are a select few, and I'm working my way to get there."
