WWE announcer Michael Cole was recently interviewed by Sam Roberts, and you can check out the entire interview in the video player below. Also included are some Cole highlight quotes:

On the backstage attitude towards him prior to his WrestleMania 27 match:

"People hated me. I was boring myself while I was walking out there."

On recently mocking a Chris Jericho segment and disrespecting him:

"What I felt bad about is that I disrespected Chris, who has obviously been in this business longer than I have. He's one of the legendary greats of all-time. More importantly than all of that, Chris is a friend of mine. Believe it or not, I felt bad. I felt bad for a number of reasons… because I didn't go to Chris and explain to him what happened, so he had to hear through the grapevine the next day. So he wasn't happy with me. We ironed things out and he's a great guy."

Cole speaks on a number of other topics including his wife only ever watching him on WWE TV one time, his match at 'Mania being longer than Daniel Bryan's, and more:
