I get up when I feel like getting up. That's the deal I've made with myself: I can stay in bed as long as my dog's bladder holds.

I got put through a ladder by Jeff Hardy at WrestleMania 23, had bruises from the ladder rungs across my back, but I was back the next night.

That mentality does get ingrained in you. -Edge
