I love the live events. I love the Friday, Saturday, Sunday live event shows. I hate TVs. TVs I just want to bash myself in the head with a hammer. Cause they’re just long, useless, time-wastin’, bullshit days where you sit around all day for some freakin’ idea that absolutely sucks. Debating it for hours and 17,000 inputs and one or two guys laced up wrestling boots in their life that know what they’re talking about, and the other ones that never laced up a pair and really don’t know shit, but for some reason they’re telling you what to do. So, and you’re just sitting there walking around baffled. We all have that look at TV we walk on baffled going, well why are we doing this?
I like the live events. It’s not as crazy. There’s not as much BS backstage. It’s just me and the guys. I like that part, and I like getting out there and working. I’ve done a lot of stuff where I just go down, I knock someone out, and I leave. I hate that. I get it. I’m old, I’m beat up. They’re trying to help me out and extend me. But I like getting in the ring, like last night…was the most fun I’ve had in awhile because I got to get in there and tell a story and go to work.
Whether you like my character or not — and most of the shit I’ve done on TV and pay-per-views I didn’t get to pick to do anyways. Don’t be mad at me, be mad at the people that book this shit. Getting in the ring and actually working, I love that. I love working. The stuff going on now, there’s a lot of change going on. There’s a lot of new talent with a lot of new opportunities, and I’m OK with that. They should get the TV time. They should get the pay-per-view time. I’m totally fine with that. Just don’t make me come to Mondays when I don’t have to do anything. That shit pisses me off. If I’m coming, use me. If I’m not, send me home.
Well, I think a lot of that “please retire” stuff too was the fans just really sick with how they were using me on TV. It’s tough, you can’t quantify it, but our fans are pretty intelligent about what’s going on. Sure, they’re entertained. But a lot of times they get stuff in their stomach, where, it’s not that they don’t like the person, they just don’t like what’s going on. Why are you doing this? This is terrible
