WWE superstar “Top Dolla” AJ Francis has said he wants to be a part of WrestleMania 38 and that he has been aspiring about working the “biggest spectacle of the year” ever since he signed with the WWE in January 2020.
In an interview with Corey Graves on his After the Bell Podcast, the Hit Row member said he played at AT&T Stadium, the venue for WrestleMania 38, in Dallas when was was part of the NFL.
“Man, I ain’t going to lie to you, that’s exactly what I want and that’s exactly what I think we’re going to go out and prove that we deserve,” he said. He continued: “I went to WrestleMania 32 in Dallas and I was in the fourth row and I was like, this is incredible.”
“I played the Dallas Cowboys in that stadium, that stadium, it doesn’t even feel like an arena, it feels like a mall. It feels like you’re playing in the middle of a mall, it’s gigantic and there’s nothing like it. To be there again, the opportunity to perform there again but this time with WWE, I don’t care what I’m doing.”
The NXT alum added that he won’t mind being at the receiving end of a stunner or a brogue kick because he just wants an opportunity to work WWE’s biggest show of the year.
“I don’t care if all I’m doing is eating a stunner, I don’t care if I get brogue kicked in the face 400 times, I don’t care what I’m doing. I cannot wait for that opportunity because it’s all that I’ve been thinking about ever since we got called up to SmackDown. I have notoriously overestimated my abilities in everything that I do and because of that I’ve been able to succeed a lot because I believe in myself.”
Francis said he had hoped of getting called up for WrestleMania 36 and 37 but that didn’t happen. He added that he wants to work the WrestleMania card every year and that he can’t wait to perform at the event.
