Being a champion, what is your role now?
Sometimes people think it’s cool to be a champion, but being a champion is a lot more work actually. Yes it’s an ego trip to be a champion, but there is a lot more involved in it. My role now is to establish the younger guys and help them find out who they are as a talent.
How has WWE evolved over the years?
The business has completely evolved. when I started in 1995, it was like rock and roll. We couldn’t do anything wrong. The arenas were sold out. Our boss took good advantage of that and started building for the future. WWE went from teenage material to young adult to more family oriented which I think is a great move for our company. Nowadays it’s hard to get families together to watch a programme. Our product is something that everyone can watch. I like to shake my big butt and make the kids laugh. it’s a good feeling.
How is the camaraderie when you’ll are not in the ring?
It’s just like any other job. You don’t necessarily like everybody you work with. There are some you just don’t. Some guys are you’re bitter rivals on the television but in real life your just good friends. At the same time, there may be someone in the ring that you high 5, and he may be my tag team, but after the show, we’re enemies. The great thing is that we don’t let our personal differences come in the way of our profession.
