On Daniel Bryan/John Cena at SummerSlam: "I think Daniel Bryan will really push John Cena. No-one in WWE wrestles at the pace of Daniel Bryan. When you're in a main event likely closing the show on a major show, your senses are heightened. As professionals their job is to close that show and follow everything those people have seen in the last couple of hours. I think that John Cena is gonna show people that he has many more abilities in the ring than people, the Cena haters, think he does. Daniel Bryan's gonna bring everything he has in his toolbox as he should, and it'll be Cena's job to deal with that onslaught and keep up with the pace."

The importance of NXT: "So many new talents are beginning to find their way. That's been the plan all along. That's been the plan of our developmental program down at NXT, it's crucial to the success, long term, of WWE. Let me put it to you this way, NXT has to be a success for WWE to survive long term. There is n more important entity, or function or facet of WWE than talent development and that starts at the Performance Center in Orlando. It's crucial. Those kids that come out of that program, some fans are impatient and want them to be overnight successes which rarely happens. But if the fans are patient and the talent are diligent to get better, learn something new every day and they represent themselves as professionals then whats meant to be will happen.

"You know, The Wyatts, The Shield, Big E Langston, Damien Sandow. They're all works in progress, they're not where they're gonna be, they're not even close yet. A lot of people say "When are The Shield gonna split up? Who'll be the first Shield member to main event WrestleMania?" I get asked that all the time. How the hell should I know? I've been in the business 40 years and I don't know. There's too many variables I can't control. They can't predict when they're gonna get injured. But the encouraging part is we have a great young crew ready to evolve. These young talents are part of what makes SummerSlam so exciting and subsequent PPVs leading to WrestleMania XXX. It isn't an option that we hope the talents get better, the mandate is they must get better. That's where we are with that."

On getting asked constantly on his site about Taker at WM30: "Oh man, The Undertaker will wrestle at WrestleMania 30 and who he wrestles will be a high quality, main event talent in a must see match because whoever it will be will be going up against the streak. That is going to happen."

In the rest of the interview JR talks about the legacy of Foley's Hell in A Cell jump, his 2001 commentary partnership with Paul Heyman, Brock/Punk at SummerSlam and much more.
