"We couldn't come to an agreement on a contract. A similar thing happened with WWE in 2005. Bubba [and I] were doing things separate at the time, normally we did our contracts together but at this particular point in time we did it separate. That's basically what it was, we couldn't come to an agreement. I held no ill will towards the company, I just knew what I had to do to make my family survive, it's getting close to winding this thing down and you've gotta look out for your best interests. We just couldn't agree financially. Everyone thought it was part of an angle that was being done, but it really wasn't, I was gone. When I made that announcement, I was gone, I was not coming back. Then a new offer came in two months later and again it was something where I wasn't looking to come back but now with the whole thing with Aces and Eights, you know, I love it. It's something I never thought I'd get involved with until they came to me with it. I'm just happy."
