It’s a good and a bad thing obviously, but I really enjoy entertaining people and I really enjoy traveling all over the world and that’s what kept me going. I still believe in hard work paying off and that’s what I wanted to do. Of course, you start to think, OK what are other options or other possibilities. How can I improve my standing maybe through some outside ventures or whatever?  But in the end, I just figured OK when the right moment comes I’ll be ready and I’ll knock it out of the park.”

Other Wrestling

  • Jon Moxley told The Metro about an idea he had to eventually form a tag team with Brodie Lee prior to Lee’s passing: “I had an idea to eventually one day -- I like tag team wrestling, you know? And there’s so many great tag teams here that I wanna get to work with. But it’s like, OK, I’m gonna need a suitable partner, not just any random guy. I want a full, actual good tag team run with a good partner, make a real run at having a run in this tag division. The guy I was thinking about doing it with was Brodie Lee. He was a good friend, and I wrestled him so many millions of times, our styles would have complemented each other very well. You want somebody who complements you -- maybe they do things you don’t do, and vice versa. ‘I thought a Shield-Wyatt mash-up super team would have been a really cool tag team. Me and Brodie could have really gone on a  f***ing rampage as a team.”
  • Kenny Omega spoke to TalkSport about conversations he had with Triple H prior to AEW forming and why he thinks it would be hard but not impossible for AEW to work with WWE.
  • Aaron Solow and Bayley announced that they’ve decided to call off their engagement and end their relationship. Solow wrote: “This has been an extremely difficult decision to make. Pam and I have come to the realization that we have a completely different idea of what we want our future to look like, because of this we feel that it would be in our best interests to call off our engagement and end our relationship. We have a lot of great memories together that we’ll forever cherish. We’ve agreed to remain friends and will continue to support each other in our careers and lives. We ask that you please respect our privacy on this matter.”
