"My scariest plane ride was we were on our way to Perth, Australia, and we started taking on -- I think -- there’s something going on where we had to get fuel and me and Paul Heyman were sitting next to each other, and we were near Siberia," Tillis recalled. "We had to land -- I believe it was in Russia or a Russia outpost to get fuel in the middle of a snowstorm where they had to clear the tracks and they wouldn’t let us off the plane obviously, then we took off at unbelievably -- it was almost at a 90 degree angle to get out of this snowstorm and Paul Heyman looks at me and he says to me, he goes, ‘If we get out of this alive’ because trust me when I tell you, we were circling and it was getting kind of close and you can ask Paul Heyman. He goes, ‘I’m gonna punch Vince [McMahon] in the mouth if I ever get out of this alive.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God.'"

The hectic nature of the trip to Perth, Australia caused Nathan Jones to leave WWE shortly after.
