He added,” I put myself in a horribly s***ty situation to get what I wanted to but to satiate him and give him what he wanted. The problem is, he never held up his bargain.” He stated that he did not get time to work out when he had Covid and still, he went and finished his job. But to his disappointment, McMahon did not hold up his part of the deal. He also called Vince McMahon a piece of sh*t.
