Batista
"I left for very specific reasons and the reasons were because there were certain opportunities I wasn't getting when I was with the company, and we were so locked down and I mean when you are under contract with them you're pretty much limited to the things you can do. You really can't do anything else in the company without their say so and they weren't certain guys were getting opportunities that I wasn't getting and I wasn't real cool with that. So I left to accomplish certain things, and I felt like once I accomplished them, I always wanted to come back. At the end of the day I love professional wrestling. We didn't come back and demand a lot of money you know I didn't say, 'I'm not doing house shows I'm only doing Monday Night Raw.' I mean I said, 'I'll do Smackdown, I'll do house shows.'" - Batista talks about his WWE return

Damien Sandow
"I think your actual language, in my opinion, is what's wrong with a lot of the Superstars. I don't mean that as a shot at you… let me explain myself... their frustrations and, I hate this term, but 'push.' What is a push? Every time you get a chance on television, that is a chance to win fans. That is a chance to create good content. A lot of the guys… 'I'm not working in the main event.' If they have a problem with that, you get yourself in the main event. If you're not, you make sure your match is the best match of the night. You can only go forward. I never saw me losing my briefcase to John Cena as a bad thing, it was a chance for my character to evolve. And evolve I did! I think, looking back at my career, when it's all said and done, that night will go down as one of the most pivotal nights in my career." - Damien Sandow discusses his push being stopped
