On if he thinks Vince McMahon “bladed” in order to bleed on last week’s episode of Smackdown Live:

EB: If he really wanted to make that a really big moment he may have wanted to ensure that it was going to happen because sometimes it just doesn’t. You can do everything right and it just doesn’t happen. If his goal was to ensure it then I guess I could put on my tinfoil hat and dig into my conspiracy handbook and suggest that it’s a possibility. Knowing Vince the way I think I know him he probably just went out there and told Kevin to hit him hard enough to cut him open.

On what he thinks was going through Kevin Owens’ head before he headbutted Vince and busted him open:

EB: Here is the worst part, if you don’t headbutt him hard enough and if he doesn’t get color then he’s gonna be hot. You could crack his skull headbutting him and if it achieves the goal and mission he’d probably get up and go, “Hey pal! Great job!” Give you a raise. If for whatever reason you hold back and it looks kind of weak… oh my God! That’s what Kevin was thinking about. I guarantee you that was going through his mind.
