On being WWE Champion:
“It’s a dream. It’s an honor. It’s a great responsibility, and it’s cool because it helps you evolve, it helps you break the mold of what you were doing. After chasing it for so long, to have it on my shoulder, now I’m pushing it, now I’m taking it to the next level, I’m trying to reach grounds that I didn’t think I could reach.”
On his odds of winning the Royal Rumble:
“I’m not just in there with one guy, like you said. I’m in there with 29 other dudes who are trying to take what’s mine, and I’ll be damned. Screw that, I’m not going to be the biggest loser. They’re going to have to knock me out and drag me out of there. Brock’s going to have to German me into the stands to get me out.”
