“I think [Seth Rollins] is being generous in calling them a competition. I don’t want to get too deep into this… I said it before: it’s an option and that’s great for professional wrestlers, pretty cool for fans. Before my family was WWE only, we’ve been a territorial family. You had to move, work with different promotions and territories. I’m always gonna be ‘pro pro-wrestler’, but at the end of the day, WWE is my home. It’s what I represent and we’re so far ahead.
“You can see it in other shows – it’s not easy to have a clean production. You have to have a lot of experience. Our talent is top-notch, we’ve got main eventers for days but it also is our crew. They’re busting their asses all night to get the show running. There are so many people that make this place work. When you see other people out there trying to do it, you see the flaws and it makes you respect what we do even more. It’s easy to complain and to say this and this on paper, but when it’s time to go out there and actually do it, nobody will do it like WWE. Period.”
