"I just became the first WWE champion - I just told my mate and I'm now about to speak to Ally McCoist about it.

"It's an incredible feeling. It would have been nice to have the 80,000 fans inside the stadium and my family but I'm still so proud.

"Hopefully - this is 19 years of work - it has put a smile on people's faces.

"When it gets backs to normal, the next thing I want to do is fight Chris Sutton.

"Vince McMahon told the world I would be world champion but I made some mistakes.

"But I worked my a*** off, I didn't work from scratch, I worked from ten feet under - I know Fury went through something similar.

"If you put your mind to it and work hard enough you can be world champion."
