On Brock Lesnar reportedly becoming a free agent and if he sees him in agent:

I mean you have to look at every free agent, especially one of the magnitude of Brock Lesnar. From a business side of things, you have to look at that. From a professional wrestler side of things, I’m not sure that he’s the best fit for AEW, but again, I’m not management. I’ve been in the ring twice with him. So I’m clearly not afraid of him. So if he was to be here, I mean I have a championship so if he wants to start somewhere, I’ll welcome him.

I think we got enough monsters here to be to be fair, and like I said, if he wants to be the monster in town, then he’s going to have to come through a few of us. That’s the thing man, I don’t give a s–t. If you’re going to tease coming to the company, then you have to expect this, and like I said, I’m not afraid of anybody and this is what I do for a living, so let’s do it.

On how he celebrated his AEW TNT Championship win:

Well, I was drunk for four days straight pretty much, and then I kind of resurfaced due to family obligations, but no man, it’s been absolutely spectacular. I was able to bring home the belt that night and put it in bed with my son so he could wake up to it. I have an eight-year-old son. So we’re going to wake up to the TNT Championship, which is a very very cool moment. So yeah, it’s been the pinnacle of a lot of a lot of stress, a lot of anxiety and a lot of heartache. I’m a big beer guy, but unfortunately, it’s not conducive to my profession so I usually go to Tito’s vodka.

On if he plans to continue with Cody’s open challenge for the TNT title:

Absolutely not. I’m of the belief that you earn a shot at the championship. I don’t think a Warhorse or an Eddie Kingston did anything to earn a championship match. So, as I said I think last week, the open challenge is dead. Independent wrestlers on television on my watch are dead, and we will proceed from there.

On if he has an update on Cody’s condition and when he may return to AEW:

I don’t know if I’m allowed to swear or not on your show, but I don’t give a f–k about Cody. Cody was an obstacle in my way, and he had to be put out in order to establish me and the Dark Order as a threat.

On if he has any interest in opening a training school like Cody or Dustin Rhodes:

100% focused on my in-ring [career]. I don’t think the conversation will come on the other end with the next part of the business until I think I’m slowing down because once I start diverging myself too much with a family, with a career [and] with a school, then maybe I become weak in one aspect. So I want to definitely focus on AEW and the weekly product right now.
