Interview at Monday Night Mayhem
"When I beat AJ Styles, I think I've been groomed to be a headliner for a TNA Pay-Per-View. I've been groomed from the ground, even back in my WWE days. I wasn't there just to be a mid-card guy, they were grooming me, even then in OVW, to be a main-event attraction. TNA same exact thing: When they started building me as a bodyguard for Jim Cornette, and the slow build through the mid-card, up through the upper card, and now here we are in the main event level. This is exactly what the plan was. I just to step up the challenge and show them I'm worthy of being a main-event headliner one day.
