On finally getting a job with WWE: “It was just something that happened. One day I was told you can do it, I wasn’t so sure but when I was given the chance, I’m now just grateful. I knew when I retired I may be given those chances, to do different things and I am glad that is what has happened.”
On whether or not he misses being part of the action inside the squared circle: “There are moments I miss being an in-ring performer. I had a very brief time in a WWE ring a long time, but I can do commentary for a very long time. I am enjoying it and feel I am growing as a performer.”
On WWE giving many U.K. talents opportunities: “Some of these guys, like Pete Dunne has been there and done it already, this isn’t their first rodeo. We are seeing them rewarded, I couldn’t be prouder of them. I’ve been there going to small venues, wondering if it will pay off, I’m so glad to see it has worked for them all.”
On the possibility of moving up to either RAW or SmackDown Live as an announcer: “I’d be open to anything. In WWE you are given chances, if you respond well, you are given more opportunities. I will just keep doing my thing and see what happens.”
