On the talent elevating the company as a team: “I feel like I’m still, I’m shining a different light on the product. One person doesn’t elevate a product anymore, I feel like everybody elevates with the product. I feel like it’s always a team effort, even like a Mercedes [Mone] helps elevate the product as well, like myself I help elevate it in a way, Moxley helps elevate it, you know, Copeland was helping elevate it you know … Like I feel like all of us, Bryan Danielson, Darby Allin, we all elevate this product together, there’s not just one person.”

On Floyd Mayweather appearing ringside at Double or Nothing: “Just Floyd Mayweather walking into MGM to just watch my match means a lot, that means something. He came in just to watch the show, watch my match because he heard All Elite Wrestling has a Black World Champion and he wanted to come in and support that. That right there already shifts the culture in a way that not a lot of other former World Champions have been able to do.”
