This year I've had the opporrtunity to enjoy all the action from Los Angeles in the days leading up to Summerslam 2012. Here are the tidbits I have collected from several WWE Superstars:
Stephanie McMahon gives an interesting answer on whether or not she will return to WWE TV.
Wade Barrett says he is 99 percent healed from injury and details the character changes we can expect when he returns to WWE TV.
Antonio Cesaro has already heard the idea you probably have for him (and I certainly had) as U.S. champion.
Dolph Ziggler says Summerslam vs. Chris Jericho is the most important match of his life and he idolized Jericho growing up.
Alicia Fox notes that there will be a wardrobe change in her future.
Kelly Kelly hopes WWE uses her more.
The Miz thinks critics are wrong when they say the IC title lacks prestige and it's a step down to hold it at this point in his career (after having won the WWE title and main evented WrestleMania).
Mark Henry is at peace with the idea that his WWE career may be over and his latest World Heavyweight title run might have been his last hoorah. He also talks about Olympians that he scouted for WWE while in London.
Reks and Hawkins joke about finally being done working Ryback, and Reks getting pink eye during their matches. Hawkins also talks about working with The Rock and helping him get back into ring shape prior to WrestleMania 28.
Natalya speculates that her next move on WWE TV might be with Raw general manager AJ Lee.
Alberto Del Rio credits his lineage to why he pays so much attention to detail in the squared circle and talks about sending a message about bullying to kids at a B.A. star rally despite being a heel on TV.
David Otunga says the WWE locker room didn't believe him at first and wasn't totally well received when he was introduced as a Harvard Law graduate.
There are also interviews with American Idol's James Durbin (who wants to step into a WWE ring) and Disney actor Ryan Ochoa (who mentions his first WWE memory is of Val Venis) located here.
Also, be sure to check out our Summerslam info graphic, full of stats and facts from the first 24 Smmerslam events.
