You can check out a couple of highlights below, per Wrestling Inc:
On competing at his age: “I’m 66 years old. When you get in the ring with somebody, they can make you look like you’re 66 years old or they can make you look like you’re 28 years old. It’s very few in this business that are true workers… [too many are] worried about getting their s**t in, but they’re not worried about what kind of story we’re telling in this match.”
On what match he wants to have alongside Kerry: “I’d like to wrestle The Young Bucks, I would.”
– Kayla Braxton recounted her own scary situation today. The WWE personality talked about how she has sleep paralysis and had such a situation last night:
I’ve had sleep paralysis since I was a kid. Last night,a little girl ran in front of me before plopping on my bed. She just stared at me. I could hear her footsteps and feel her move. It was so real. But I couldn’t move or speak til I forced myself to sit up – then she was gone.”
