On possibly facing AJ Styles at WrestleMania:
No not at all actually, I feel like AJ is not on my level. He’s got to cut his teeth in WWE a little before he can even think about coming after somebody like me. He’s just got here, he’s pretty new and he’s a bit of a rookie. I feel like I’ve been showing the WWE Universe for nine, 10 months my superiority and how dominating I am as an Intercontinental Champion. I was NXT Champion and I have accomplished so much more than he has. I feel like before he can even think about coming after me he needs to get a decent haircut first of all, then get a couple of victories in WWE. Then I’ll entertain the idea of maybe stepping into the ring with him, when I feel he deserves to be in there with me.
On his run in WWE so far:
Yeah you know it’s been a pretty crazy ride. I feel like I’ve lived in less than a year what some WWE Superstars live over five, six or seven years, or even an entire WWE career. I’ve been part of so many pay-per-views, been in the ring with John Cena, Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, all those guys you said, Roman Reigns… all the top names. And I’ve put up quite the fight against all those guys. I’ve been Intercontinental Champion twice already. I feel like I’ve already done so much that I dreamed to do for 20 years, when I wanted to be a WWE Superstar. But I’ve got so much left to accomplish and there is so much left to do. It’s all very exciting. I’m pretty proud of everything I’ve done so far and I’m looking forward to the next five, six or even 10 years, who knows how long I will be doing this for. I’m really enjoying the ride.
