Scotty on returning to the ring at age 40: "I realized last year I went to fire school and EMT school and graduated both of those, finished up and started looking for a job and I thought I was out of wrestling. And then I got the call to go to 'Old School' Raw and doing that and being there for the day I realized I know I can still go, I don't want to be that guy embarrassing himself, I know I can still go. I'm in better shape now then the last time I was there full-time. And you just know there's probably only a few more years where I can do this and the level I want to do it."

Scotty on working for WWE: "You know what's so cool wrestling for them now? When you're there as a full-time guy and you're wrestling four nights a week, you kind of take it for granted. Everything is going 100 miles an hour. Whereas now, like when I went back for 'Old School' Raw, you go this could be the last time. And you kind of appreciate it more. You take it all in. And then same thing for NXT. This could be the last time I'm in a WWE ring. Hopefully it's not and chances are it's not going to be because I'm still in decent shape and relatively young. I'm sure there'll be more coming down the road but you say that to yourself and appreciate it."
