" I would choose to do nothing more than to do double task on WrestleMania weekend with one of the greatest NXT champs of perpetuity-- me-- vs. Seth. We had so many fights together that we utilized to go to Vince and state, 'We can't do this match again,' yet we constantly turned it around-- which reminds me of a couple years ago where Kofi and I had a best-of-500 series together, by mishap, where I believe Kofi won 497 of them."
The Kent State University product continued to applaud Rollins:
" Seth is special, and I 'd like to think I had something to do with him reaching a different path when we got to go head to head nonstop for 2 years. If anyone is pulling double task for WrestleMania, you better think it's me."

"And this Saturday at Stand & Deliver, I don't intend on losing and being a three-week transitional champion. I want help construct this brand name long term. This isn't going to be some 45-second match on Raw, and I can't stress that enough. I'm going to bust my a **. Everyone is going to see that chip on my shoulder. When people leave, they're going to state, 'Holy s--. I hope WrestleMania is as good as that.' So see you at Stand & Deliver on Saturday," stated Ziggler.
