Interview highlights courtesy of The  Mayhem’s official correspondent, Paterson from New Jersey:
His reasons for choosing to sign with Lucha Libre USA and not pursuing TNA or Ring of Honor more actively: “I
just think it’s something different. I never did the Lucha  Libre
style, and I think I have more to offer those guys. I think  it’s a
challenge for me now. Once I left the WWE, if you count WCW,  you’re
talking about a 12-year TV career. The only time I had off is if I  was
hurt. I wasn’t really sure if I was going to sign another TV  contract,
because I didn’t know if I wanted to. I started working the  indies, and
working with a lot of talented people, and it kind of lit the  fire
under me again. There’s alot of people in TNA who want me there, and I
have lot of friends down there, but Lucha Libre USA came at me with  a
great offer, so I think I made the right choice.”
Why, despite fan reaction, it was not a surprise for him to not join TNA, the importance of standing out on his own, & not going somewhere
“because I’m someone’s friend”: “I had calls from certain 
people, but I hadn’t really decided. Even when the Lucha Libre offer
came  up, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do anything. I think TNA will
always  be an option, and it would great to work Matt, Jeff, &
Shannon again, but  I see those guys all the time anyway. I don’t want
to go there just  because I’m someone’s friend. That’s never been my
deal, and I’ve always  done my own thing anyway. I know it was a
surprise to some people, but I  think for people who really know me, it
wasn’t that big of a surprise.”
Why he chose to
echo his recent sentiments & feelings on Shawn Michaels, the
reaction he has received from those within the wrestling community/his
fans, & why “there will be more stories like that coming out”: Shane’s
explanation on the comments he made Shawn Michaels: “He tried  to
undercut me a couple times, and this was supposedly after his
‘salvation,’ when he’s supposed to be such a good guy. He’s undercut a
lot  of people, Ken Kennedy being one, that he really went out his way
to  bury for absolutely no reason. When you’re out there hurting
somebody’s career &  hurting somebody’s family, and then you go out
on the stage and pray, that just  rubs me wrong. I’m not getting
anything out of telling the truth. I  might have lost some fans just
because I told the truth, but I think in  the end there will be more
people that will eventually, when they into a level of comfort  that I’m
at now, there will be more stories like that coming out.”
  is  contained in Shane’s exclusive interview with The Monday Night
Mayhem Radio Network,  including his candid  thoughts & comments on
if could ever foresee a return to World Wrestling Entertainment, where
The Hurricane/Paul Burchill feud was headed on ECW on Syfy prior to his
release, what he feels he brings to the table in his new home of Lucha
Libre USA, the future of the cruiserweight style of wrestling, being one
of the originators of social networking amongst those in the wrestling
community, what led him to launch “Highway 2 Helms,” plus so much more!
