Being in the main event lately: "Being in these big stories in WWE and main eventing pay-per-views, I've main evented every show I've been on the last two months, it's pretty surreal, and to do it in front of large crowds on such big shows, it's awesome.
"Some things happen overnight, but my rise to the top has not. It's been a very slow, gradual buildup. So the surprises to me is where this journey has kind of ended up, not like this rush of, 'OK, yesterday I was wrestling in an armory and today I'm main eventing [a WWE pay-per-view].' It's been a process to get here, but that's the fun for me."
The possibility of he and Brie Bella winning titles at Battleground: "It would be awesome. It would be something very special for us to share winning the titles on the same night. Couples doing things together, that would probably be one of the most special things we can do together."
