Overall X-Pac says he was blown away by the entire program there. Matt Bloom is perfect in his role, and it was pretty special to see the way Shawn Michaels interacts with all the trainees there.
X-Pac says he hates the old school mentality of not making friends in the wrestling business. He notes that a lot of great things happened because of the friendships he had with, Michaels, Triple H, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. Today, a lot of great things are happening because of the friendship between The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega.
X-Pac says he wasn’t surprised to see A.J. Styles resign with WWE. He’s established now as a top guy in WWE, and regardless of the downside guarantee figure that’s listed on his contract, he’s going to make a lot more money in merchandise sales and PPV payoffs. X-Pac thinks it’s great for Styles, adding that he deserves it.
X-Pac says he can completely understand why people are disappointed with WWE’s choice to put Baron Corbin in Kurt Angle’s final match. He says it just isn’t what people were imagining. He has no idea if this is a swerve leading to a change, but he doesn’t think that’s what WWE is planning here.
He says he “…never gave two f**ks” about the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, and it’s pretty amazing that Braun Strowman will be in that match this year. It just goes to show how much things can change from year to year.
