On the latest edition of After the Bell, he commented on Matt Hardy thanking him for being a true heel: “Matt Hardy pulled me aside on a Europe tour and he’s like, ‘Man, I want to say thank you, because you’re a true heel, dude, and you don’t care about what the internet says or what people says, and it’s really hard to do now days, and I appreciate it.’ And then I’m going, alright, I’m good for like two years, bro, I don’t need another compliment, because you’re getting it from people who matter.
I want to be the guy that everybody is going, ‘Put me with Corbin, I want to draw some money with Corbin.’ I want Lesnar to go, ‘Hey, I want to work with him,’ or The Rock to go, ‘If I’m coming back for one more match, it’s with Corbin.' ”
