“Pro wrestling is awesome, and AEW has rejuvenated me, I’ll tell you that. I truly believe that when you show excellent professional wrestling to anyone, they’re going to enjoy it.”
How AEW didn’t need him:
“My purpose in AEW is something completely different than it was in WWE. I really felt like AEW didn’t need me. My purpose is to get more eyeballs on this already awesome product.”
