Here’s what Wade had to say:
Whether it’s easier to be heel or face:
I think it purely depends on the individual. I know Iâ€™ve always felt more comfortable being an antagonist and on the few occasions in my career when Iâ€™ve tried to go out and be the fan favorite, back in my days in the U.K., I just never did a good job with it. I was always very bad at getting the fans to get behind me and cheer for me and clap for me, so I knew very early in my career that I would be a better antagonist than protagonist. â€¦ Some guys are better fit for certain roles and I think Iâ€™m a better fit as a heel.
On doing MMA:
UFC fighting isnâ€™t really something that Iâ€™d be too interested in now. Iâ€™m very much focused on my career with WWE. â€¦ Iâ€™ve got no desires to ever leave WWE until I wanna retire one day when Iâ€™m really old. UFC isnâ€™t something thatâ€™s ever really appealed to me. â€¦ I was always more a fan of boxing than I was of mixed martial arts.
On Ad Libbing:
A lot of the times weâ€™re shoved out in front of the camera and I may be out there talking for 10 minutes straight or doing it back and forth with someone for 10 or 15 minutes. A lot of times you are having to ad-lib. Thereâ€™s no way anybody can memorize all the stuff we have to come out and say. Generally, Iâ€™ll have an idea of whatâ€™ Iâ€™m gonna say, but in terms of crowd interaction and things like that, sometimes the crowd will be chanting stuff at me, so Iâ€™ll want to say something in response to that. Sometimes whoever Iâ€™m talking with might throw me a curveball â€“ like John Cenaâ€™s very good at ad-libbing. He used to throw a lot of curveballs at me when I was out there talking with him, so I have to be very much reactive to whatâ€™s going on around me.
