Rey said that the turn was just so good. He concluded by saying that his intensity toward Dave was one of the best and he enjoyed working against him.
“I was tag team champion with Batista as well. And, to be able to do a storyline with Dave, it just felt really good. I hadn’t done a big storyline with one of my partners or a tag team partner whom I had held the belts with. So doing it with Dave and the turn from Dave – I don’t think people saw it coming until of course he snatched me from the neck and then just yelled in my face, ‘You were supposed to be my friend’. That turn was just so good. So good. The intensity of Dave was one of the best and I enjoyed working against him.”
