"Luckily I wasn't driving to the show with everyone at the time, it was just me when I got the call... I totally saw it coming. I was on the road doing pretty good, I thought I was improving constantly and then I tore my tricep. I was out six months and was ready to get back to it and was sent to FCW practice. So I was like, 'Ohh, something's up. This isn't good.'"
"There were times on Superstars and NXT I got to wrestle longer. Even in the Saddledome I got to have an awesome match with Tyson Kidd -- it is probably my favourite match. They gave us 17 minutes [so] a great match is going to happen. It was in Canada so the people were behind him. Tyson is one guy who every time I got in the ring with him it was so easy and so much fun. Me, Tyson and Curt Hawkins used to call ourselves the rubber men because we could take a lot of bumps and took pride that none of us got hurt. In 2012 I tore my tricep, Hawkins tore his knee and just at the end of the year Tyson blew out his knee. So rest in peace rubbermen. It's a sad story."
