Highlights from the champ’s interview can be found below.
On Tony Khan and AEW trusting his vision:
A lot of it goes into them trusting me and seeing my vision. We’ve been putting this work into about a year now with Team Taz and six months with Sting. Me and Tony Khan just sticking to the vision and them trusting my vision because I visualized a lot of this match tonight, and for them to put it out there and not second guess my directing meant a lot to me. They had a lot to say during this whole process.
Says he was involved with roughly 90% of the cinematic:
I would say I was involved in 90% of it. I was doing damn near everything that night. We were, a lot, a lot of work put into this. I was up for weeks helping produce this, so it was a lot. It was a good experience, you know because my ass dropped out of film school, so this was kind of a test to see my directing skills. I had a good time and then everybody trusting me. Ricky busting his ass too and making everything, so it was an honor to be apart of this.
