Brock Lesnar
"The friendship came together when we got together professionally back in 2002 and realized just how similar our goals were both professionally and personally. On a professional level, we both want to be the absolute best at our craft. We will settle for nothing less than being at the top of our game at every appearance and we want to leave a legacy of being the single, solitary best in that particular role the industry has ever seen. On a personal level, nothing means more to either one of us than our children and we will fight to the death for our children. And everything that we do including everything we do professionally revolves around, is about and is regarding the love that we have for our children. So both professionally and personally as much as we are different, you're talking about a South Dakota farm boy that is a natural born predator and conqueror and a smart ass New York Jew boy who's the son of a personal injury attorney from the Bronx. But as different as we are culturally, we are in terms as professionally and personally, we are very much alike." - Paul Heyman discusses his relationship with Brock Lesnar

Samoa Joe

"I would say the best person - because it was the best match-up - would be Samoa Joe. Usually you pick people that are retired and been out of the business for a while. Not for me - it's the guys that made you. Joe was a big part of that, so I would love it to be Joe but I don't know who it's going to be yet."
