He added, “I still enjoy performing in the ring as much as I ever did. I didn’t get into this business to be a commentator; I don’t even really enjoy being a commentator. I just happen to be able to do it where people can stand to listen to me. But, as far as the in-ring performing, I still enjoy doing it.”
