When asked about his contract status, he said: “The relationship is great. I have a great relationship with the “Old Man”. The way the contract, and the ending of the contract went down, it was what it was. I don’t ever harp on things, and nor do I ever want to live in regret. It just went down the way it went down, and that’s fine. The relationship is good, and there door is always open. And I love wrestling. I love doing what I did because there’s nothing like that – feeding off the energy of the crowd. Any opportunity I get to go back and dip in for a night and just start talking trash and electrifying, I’d do that for sure. I’m really happy for a lot of guys there. For instance, I love the new turn and transition Kurt Angle has gone through.”
When the prospect of a “Dream Match” with Shawn Michaels came up, Rock commented, ” was never ever interested in working with him, to be honest with you. I’ve known him for a long time. He came in and worked for my family in Hawaii when I was like 13 – him and Marty Jannetty. It was just one of those things. He was always one of those guys that I said “Hey” to and he said “Hey” – it’s no big deal.”
