Here are some highlights: * Del Rio mentioned that the World Heavyweight Championship is the most important title in the WWE because it's the first title that he chased. He admitted that WWE gives more attention to the WWE Championship. * Del Rio said he was frustrated by not being used by WWE while in FCW and was about to go back to Mexico (CMLL), but someone told Vince McMahon to not let him go because they would be losing someone who could be huge. * Del Rio revealed that prefers being a heel to a face. * Del Rio said that he thinks that the American audience does not like him because they don't like a Mexican being successful in an American company. * He bashed AAA and said that his salary was a joke, which is why he left. * Del Rio mentions never thought to come to WWE, but said that he used to watch it when he was younger and he would be lying if he didn't dream of joining the company. He he never thought WWE would be interested in him and he was thankful that they are. * Del Rio claimed that he made American fans hate him again at Payback. * He also revealed that he got his black eye during a match with Daniel Bryan at a live event in Portland, OR, a couple of nights before SummerSlam.

He said that Sin Cara has great potential, but he is very injury prone. He said that he doesn't know what the situation with Sin Cara right now. * It saddens him that Rey Mysterio is injured, which is why he told Vince that the Latinos don't care if you're a face or a heel, all that they care is that a Latino is beating the "gringo." * He never liked being in FCW and said that it was one of the placed he hated the most. He admitted that his FCW run was for the best because he learned how to wrestle the WWE style.
