I wouldn’t say I really admired anyone. When I was a kid, there were definitely a lot of tough guys, but they weren’t really cool. If anything, that was an influence on me: to take that toughness and combine it with the cool style, the cool entrance, the cool gear – and driving to work in a Ferrari.
I want to keep going to new audiences and showing people firsthand how great NJPW is.
My dream is to bring a G1 tournament to the United States. I want to do a G1 in front of American crowds.

Hell, I might want to be like some other people and become a movie star or join the UFC. You never know.
Dropkicks are old moves, but I wanted to make a new version of an old move.
There is more emotion in a match in New Japan. The matches here in the U.S. are so fast that sometime they lack emotion. It is move, move, move.

Jay White has a great chance to make his name off of me. But I’m not going to make that easy.

I should hold the IWGP title always.
