I mean, you know, just as the world. We never had this kind of situation particularly for WWE Superstars. Honestly ever since I got with [Xaiver] Woods and [Big] E, the level of fun that I’ve been having over the past six years we’ve been together now…I’ve never go to working feeling like ‘I’ve had enough’ or ‘I’m worn down’ because I know I’m going to be having fun in the ring.
So at this point in my career, as long as I’m having fun, I’m um going to keep doing it as long as I can”.
