So backstage, it’s a lot of advice given out, a lot of listening, a lot bartender listening, a lot of, ‘I got a problem with this, I got a problem with that.’ There’s a lot of working closely with Tony Khan, a lot of locker room leading, especially over the last six months or so when we kind of had to take the reins back when there was a lot of bad publicity and a lot of uncertainty in the dressing room.”
As a matter of fact, your man (referring to Jon Moxley) and (Bryan) Danielson and myself kind of, we have to really take charge here because we’re gonna lose the dressing room and if you lose the dressing room, you’re f*cked.”
“So there’s a lot of that sort of thing going on. Basically everything. I think it’s almost kind of like a real general. Tony Khan’s probably got a lot of right-hand men but I think I’m probably one of them and also too, kind of just helping out the locker room and produce probably half the backstage promos that you see. Just trying to help as much as I can.
