"This is WrestleMania 30. I've pinned Hogan once and he's never pinned me. From a fan's perspective, and WWE Universe and Vince McMahon, it never had closure. The business that would be done, the interviews and stuff would be coming from the heart. We could try to outraise the bar of the WWE entertainment machine in our sport, if they let us go toe to toe and don't script us. The fans will see really how it got started and why, and then they'll see the conclusion. They are asking can I get in shape. I am already in shape! They are asking Hulk Hogan. But there is a fear, I guess, of whether we can pull off the performance."
