You can check out the highlights below:
On how he feels about Eric Bischoff praising him and thinking he can wrestle until he reaches the age of 70:
“Eric Bischoff is one of the greatest minds in the history of our great sport. I think anyone that disagrees with that is a complete buffoon. It feels good to hear that but at the same time, it’s not something that I didn’t already know.
As I’ve stated, I’m going to be the guy that’s going to be the leader of pro wrestling for the next 25 years, there’s nobody else on the planet that can make that statement. I’m 24, in 25 years I’m going to be 49. How old is Chris Jericho? Chris Jericho is 49, so when I say that I know it sounds crazy but it’s true.” “This is simple math I’m giving you, and with my wrestling style that I’m already doing now at this point—being safe, being intelligent, using the ring to my advantage, using the referee’s discretion to my advantage—I might be able to do this until I’m 70!”
On calling himself a once in a lifetime performer:
“I already know I’m a once-in-a-lifetime performer, I already know that I cut better promos than anyone else has, perhaps in the history of this great sport, I already know that I put on wrestling clinic after wrestling clinic.” “The crazy thing that people don’t know and understand is since I’m 24 now I’m only going to get better. That’s scary, Will. That’s scary because I’m already a top name in the industry now.”
