-Says thankfully he doesn’t have cancer
-Addresses the controvery over his fundraiser for his medical bills, says he never expected TNA to pay his medical bills because he’s an “independent contractor” and he knows how that works.
-Admits someone at the TNA office got mad at him for making the company look bush league with the fundraiser, but he told them flat out he needed the money and that was the reality of the situation.
-Says his girlfriend actually started the GoFundMe account and, since she doesn’t know much about wrestling, she didn’t realize the political problems that would potentially arise because of it.
-Says that even though he didn’t get anything close to the $30,000 needed, he was still overwhelmed by the fan support and the money he did get helped a lot.
-Says he would like to go to WWE one day, but is happy with where he is now.
