Here are some highlights, you can check out the full audio interview by clicking here.
Roman Reigns & The Shield:
"I thought they were pushing him a bit too soon. The guy's obviously, he's a huge star, he's gonna be a huge star. I feel like if they push him out there before he's ready, it's gonna put a fizzle on everything, man, I'd just hate to see that. This is just my opinion, but I think they should have kept [the Shield] together a little bit longer. Let 'em have that babyface run just a little bit longer."
Returning as a Babyface:
"I'll be honest with you, I just don't want it. I love being a heel, man, you know that. That's what I love to do, man. I think I'm the guy that people love to boo and I'm okay with that and I love being heel.
"I'm the worst babyface in the history of wrestling. [Laughs] I'm just not good at it. When you do promos sometimes you gotta say things that people wanna hear instead of telling them things they should hear. You know it's hard for me to be that guy always saying the politically correct thing. I just don't like it I'm not comfortable with it."
