Your movie 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded is out now. Is it true you did all your own stunts?

Yes! Doing my own stunts was one of the coolest experiences of the film - as a kid, I wanted to be a stuntman. That always appealed to me. Now, fast-forward, I’m doing some of the most amazing stunts in my own movie! What guy doesn’t want to do 180s or burn-outs in a car?

How different is it from what you do for live WWE shows?

The big difference is that in WWE I get one take, whereas in the movie I could do as many takes as I needed for a given stunt.

We asked Diamond Dallas Page if he had a favorite current take on his Diamond Cutter, and he said your RKO. What do you think of his idea about you two having a match?

DDP is without question a legend, but let’s not forget I was called “The Legend Killer” earlier in my career…

Have you tried his DDP Yoga?

No, I haven’t yet, but I have heard great things - a lot of the guys in the locker room swear by it. I guess I will have to give it a try!

Who’s your favorite opponent you’ve ever wrestled with?

I have had so many great opponents in WWE, from Triple H, to Mick Foley, to John Cena, to The Undertaker, but I would say that my favorite opponent to compete against is Christian.

What's next for you? 

Easy answer; WWE gold around my waist. The Apex Predator is on the hunt for the World Championship!

What was the last thing you had to apologize for?

I had to apologize once or twice to our director for getting on set late.

What’s your favorite curse word? 

Hmm…I guess it would have to be the F-bomb.

What’s the worst hangover you’ve ever had?

I honestly do not remember; I’ve never been a big drinker. It’s safe to say it was a long while ago.

What was your first car? 

My first car was a Dodge Minivan.

Do you have a scar that tells a story?

I have many scars that tell many stories. You could write a book!

Do you have a party trick? 

When someone comes over to me and tells me their name I immediately spell it back to them. I am almost never right, but it breaks some of the tension!

What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever put in your mouth?

I tried to put an entire cheeseburger in my mouth all at once to make my daughter laugh. I failed, but she still laughed.

What’s the one thing to remember in a fist fight? 

Keep your hands up!

Who was the last person to see you naked? 

The last person to see me naked…can I get a drumroll or something? The last person to see me naked was me. I’m on the road, so I just recently got out of the shower…

Finish this sentence: If I ruled the world for a day, I would…

Close down Disney World for a day and take my daughter on all of the rides as many times as she wanted.
