One interesting topic was regarding the comparisons he gets which led to him speaking about predictability and John Cena:
Q: A lot of comparisons are made with Brian Pillman, Roddy Piper and even Stone Cold Steve Austin. Do you agree with those, and do you like being compared to them?
A: You’re always going to get comparisons. Everybody comes out and says he’s the next so and so or he reminds me of so and so.
The thing with me is I’ve studied so much wrestling, so many wrestlers, so many eras and styles for so long. My entire life has been dedicated to being obsessed with this. I have so many influences and stuff in my brain, who knows what’s going to pop in and come out. I don’t really try to pattern myself after any particular person. I pretty much make it up as I go along.
There’s a lot of guys in WWE, you would know who they are, you know you’re going to see the same thing every single match. You know you’re going to hear the same thing every time they pick up a microphone. You know John Cena is never going to get mad at you no matter what you do. You could steal his dog or set his house on fire and he’s not going to get all that mad at you. He’s going to come out and do the same thing he always does. Me, I’m not like that. I get pretty upset pretty quickly.
I don’t like having an entrance or anything like that too set in stone. A lot of guys come out and have the exact little dance or exact little thing that goes off at the right time with the pyro. What if I’m not in the mood to do my little dance this week?
