“I get the opportunity to work with a Big Show. Trust me when I tell you man, if you’re in the ring with a Big Show, a giant, there’s only one way it’s gonna go and that’s his way.

“His way was before the match, he came, he saw me, he said, ‘I’m gonna see you in the ring later on’, and that was it. I think I told that story before… that was not my first enlisted but that was my first match with the Big Show and all he said was I’ll see you later in the ring. I can’t tell you how terrifying that is.”
