“That is something you will have to ask CM Punk, I haven’t spoken to him about it. I do know in 2005 I was very burned out from wrestling and I left for two and a halfyears. If Punk does come back it might take a while because when you’re burned out your done, like I said it took me two and half years before I decided I wanted to come back.”

“A lot of people forget that I left for quite a long period of time. It is a tough life, there is a lot of pressure and a lot of politics, you go through a lot of shit. If you’re not there 100% it can really drag you down that’s for sure.”

Who He Wants To Work With When He Returns To WWE For Another Run:

“When the time comes for me to go back, if I have some time and they’re willing to have me back I will look through the roster and see what works and makes sense. Seth Rollins is great, Dean Ambrose is great, I think Daniel Bryan as a babyface v myself as a heel would tear the house down.”

“There are a lot of great guys but it all depends on what they’ve got going on and what I’ve got going on. The last thing they are going to be doing is waiting around for Chris Jericho to come back, so when the time comes we will see what is going on and who is doing what with who and make some decisions from there.”

Comparing Vince McMahon, Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman:

“Vince is the best boss I’ve ever had. The other guys were good bosses but to me they were just small time independent guys as far as the companies they had. Being in ECW and WCW for me was all about getting into WWE and I didn’t really care about anything else. Vince is the best boss I’ve ever had in the business and I wouldn’t work for anyone else but him and I haven’t for the last few years.”
