"I firmly believe not just in business but in life that everything happens for a reason. Not getting hired back in those days fueled the fire a little bit to go out there and get over and go different places and work harder. I have no regrets. I got to work with some great people over the last 12 years."
"The experience that I gained and the people that I met and the travels that I did, I wouldn't change that for the world. I think it's made me a better worker. It's made me a better wrestler. It's made me a better person. I think in sports entertainment timing is everything. It was a learning experience for me back in those days. I obviously wasn't ready and I got to go to a different spot and for over 12 years kind of work on my brand and become somewhat of a household name and get better and get older."
