Here are some notable quotes:

On the success of the Shield and WWE Developmental-
“I think those three guys have done a great job. I think that
they’ll all break away and have good individual careers, from that
stable. They’ll all go off to be single guys. They’ve done a really
good job because they’ve built, Hunter’s got a great developmental
program down in Orlando now, and its all under one roof. Nobody’s
being taught bad habits and have to have those habits broke and be
taught the “WWE way.” Everybody’s being taught the “WWE way” coming
in the door, and I think that way the transition from NXT to Raw is
such an easy transition for the guys because the Full Sail set up, and
a lot of people haven’t seen it, is just like a mini Raw. When you
come down to the ring it has that same feeling.”

On Scott Hall’s recovery-

“One thing Dallas gives that a lot of people don’t, just don’t have is
Dallas has always been the cup half full guy. He’s a real positive
human being. I just think that’s what Scott needed more than
anything, to be around somebody who’s a positive influence, and to get
him pointed in the right direction. Dallas was going to try and get
him on the YRG, but once he got down there his hip was so bad they had
to get a hip replacement and that’s really held Scott up. He got to a
position where he was living clean, there were people around him 24/7
that cared about him, and it just made it easier, that transition to
determine on a daily basis not to use.”

“My whole thing was they kinda hijacked him on YouTube. They cut that
promo where Scott wasn’t aware that it would even air and he was
hammered drunk. That was my whole problem, you don’t do that to
somebody. Show him six weeks later in Atlanta and then say this is
where he came from and you show that second, but you don’t show that

On his feather ruffling comments to Grantland, a year ago about
Benoit/Guerrero’s size in light of Daniel Bryan’s recent push-

“I’ll always feel that way, that people want their…when they made the
movie Avengers, Scarlett Johannsen, Hawkeye and Captain America did
not fit with Thor and Hulk.”

“People want that. Ryback got pushed to the moon because he had that
look. People want to see that. You get over faster if you look like
you’re a monster. I don’t take anything away from…I wanna see a 6’5?
guy get on the mound and throw a 110mph fast ball. I really don’t
want to see some guy doin the Maddox [former MLB Pitcher Greg Maddox]
and cuttin’ the corners and all that. I appreciate it but I wanna see
somebody come in there and throw 3 pitches, 110mph, strike the guy

On Daniel Bryan in particular-

“I would love for him to carry me.”
