“You know what, that’s one thing that was always on my bucket list, if you’re in this industry and you don’t have your eyes set on the big prize, then I don’t know why you’re in it. It might take you one year, ten, fifteen years. But, that for me was one of my biggest things, to have an opportunity to be WWE Champion and I won’t go into details but it could have happened during that time in the Attitude Era with the ya know, I did it for The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin blah, blah, blah, but business-wise, things didn’t pan out for me and that’s how that kinda came about, and at the end of the day I’ve gotta do what’s best for my family and wrestling will always be here and it was just bad timing during all that time, but I’m okay. I’m a WWE Hall of Famer, and that’s as big as that.”
Rikishi also spoke about his heel turn revealing why he did it.
