“My week was gonna be tied up. So, I get on a plane on Friday, flying to Philadelphia, got three hour drive to Scraton. I’m in the car, I hear like boop boop.. I started looking at them and I see the whole Edge on SmackDown with the blood bath thing, black blood, PG blood.”

“Everything Edge did was f*cking awesome. It was great. The reason I wasn’t so excited about it cause I knew, I was offered another great opportunity and the timing just s*cked. AEW contacted me and they wanted me to come in and do Dynamite. They were putting the entrance together, the fire, they were putting the music together. I was happy for Edge but I was super worried going ‘oh no, please don’t let this ruin things’. When SummerSlam hit, I knew it was the final nail in the coffin.”
