He was surprised to lose his first title match but that was the best thing that could happen, because he learned how to deal with failure. He talks about what a surreal honor it was to induct his father and uncle into the Hall of Fame.
Losing to Dolph Ziggler hurt but he sat and watched WrestleMania and thought to himself he couldn’t leave Texas without regaining that title and so he challenged Dolph on Raw and won it back.
