The reaction at the Royal Rumble:
"I wanted to take a steal chair and just sit in the middle of the aisle and take it all in because I said it's going to be all down hill from here. It couldn't have been more special. Thank god I was wearing a condom."
His business relationship with Dixie Carter:
"If I had have walked into an office and went to Dixie and said this is what I want to do and this is what will make me happy, Dixie would have signed off on it in 30 seconds."
Dixie's reaction to him in the Royal Rumble:
"She was out of the country. I guarantee you she was happy for my response and happy I was happy."
Triple H not working the Rumble:
"Paul had no desire at that point [to get in the ring]. He is working in the office and walking around with a clipboard. Vince and Steph feel the company needs his mind more than his body right now. Whenever he comes back though, it's a game changer. When I found out he [HHH] wasn't working, I asked if it was the buddysystem [not wanting to steal a pop from Booker T or Nash] and that's how I took it."
One last run in WWE:
"It's up to creative. Every guy in the business thinks they have one last run, and the truth is, they do - if creative is in compliance with that. I told them I'd go as hard as I can for as long as I can until I break down."
His current status:
"I could go back to TNA and wrestle for them tomorrow, they just can't put me in a video game - oh wait, they don't have one. They couldn't do a doll, well they could. They could do a doll [like they did before] with a likeness that Vince owns. They [TNA] put out a doll of me with long brown hair. My contract with them said they would market my TNA likeness. I asked Terry Taylor to show me a picture of when I ever worked in TNA with long brown hair. Jakks said, 'Sorry it was a dye problem from China.' You have to look at the doll. Jakks had a 2003 Ruthless Aggression Diesel doll and they slapped a Nash logo on it with the same Diesel head, and it was just bogus man."
His new WWE Legends deal:
"It has verbiage that says you are subject to wrestle. I looked at it as, I'm making a 5 year commitment that I'm not going anywhere else, and if I do they can't market any part of me."
