Lita
"I was out there with Edge and Randy. It was a 2 segment match and at some point during the match Randy rolls out of the ring. I go over to him and check on him and he proceeds to tell me that his shoulder is out and he canít get it back in or move it. So, I tell him to stand up against the ring post, he holds on to his dangling arm, and I shoved his shoulder up against the ring post, heard a click, and it went back in. I told him he was all set and to get back in there and help my dude. His reaction was half hot and half relieved and half still not even clear as to what was going on (I was never good at fractions)." - Lita on helping Randy Orton through an injury

Alberto Del Rio

"And I really wish Edge were still here. It killed me when I was out injured and he ended up having that final match with Alberto Del Rio. He was there while I was with the Nexus and he was just such a joy to be around. He's a good human being and just knew so much. He was always helping. Its guys like that that I wish were around still."

Edge

"We are thinking of making you guys the new 'Midnight Express. I just went, 'Oh, no. Anything new, whatever it is, it's not going to work.' That (idea) was doomed for failure right away. What are you going to say? That's brutal… a horrible idea, and I know Sean (Morley) felt the same way. We were like, this is not good, but we'll make it work and be a kick-ass tag team no matter what they call us; we'll do good with this."
