"I wanted to come back and do something special. I knew that one day I was going to come back; I just didn't quite know when. Nor did I know what it was going to be for. I quietly retired about eight years ago, so timing was one thing. The idea was another thing. I spoke to (WWE CEO) Vince McMahon over a year ago, and we came up with the idea of creating the biggest match of all time. … The gratification I get with that is invaluable. To be able to come back and create this match is very special and something I wanted."
