  13. I'd love to go into WWE and have a real knock and see what's what.


  14. A good feeling for me is when you train, and then you put on fresh clothes. New clothes after a training session - you have this rush of endorphins from exercise that everybody gets, and then you get that nice feeling of fresh clothes. It's a double whammy.

  16. I'm focusing on me. I'm focusing on my family's security, my family's financial security, so that's all I can do.

    • people

If people want to believe in this god or that god, that's fine by me; believe away. But I think we can be our own gods. I believe in myself.
