“This was ridiculously weird. Come backstage with Stephanie, and I have to do a pre tape. It was gonna be one take. But, we got backstage and Vince wants to direct it. I was like ‘holy sh*t, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahons’s father is gonna direct me kissing her during the pre-tape.”

“I was nervous as h*ll. Vince was four feet away, his eyes were open, he’s just looking. I’m like ‘this is so weird man. I don’t know how I’m gonna do this’. I went down to kiss her and we caught eyes and then we went to kiss and I stuck my lips out. Didn’t want to go with open mouth because of Vince was there and I didn’t want to disrespect Triple H and Stephanie. But, I kissed her.”
