“I was never a promo guy. I think I knew I was never a promo guy, and I just kind of coasted through my promos. The fact that I did that for so long like it’s a little embarrassing that I didn’t have more pride in my body of work. I used to get offended, like I’d hear Stone Cold Steve Austin say that I had a bad promo, you know, like ‘what the hell? no, I don’t,’”
“They were passable but I think he could tell I wasn’t giving it my all, and I wasn’t, and I almost don’t even know why. It was like I had a mental block because I knew I couldn’t be as entertaining as The Rock, or I had a mental block because I knew I couldn’t be as believable as an ass-kicker as Stone Cold Steve Austin.” – WrestlingInc
