It’s really fun. There are very few moments nowadays where I can be completely over-the-top and egregious. That’s when I get to have fun. There is so much happening, especially during a three-hour Raw. Every once in a blue moon where she makes her entrance and I get to just be ridiculously over-the-top. It helps that she is a bad guy because nobody wants to hear that. I’m aware of that. To me, it enhances which she is portrayed as the most beautiful woman in all of WWE. To have her significant other in real life screaming at the top of my lungs, I like to think it helps her cause and annoys people at home. All by design.

“I felt very lonely,” Tanahashi says through a translator. “I wanted to meet and talk again. The match with Mr. Hall had a great influence on my life as a wrestler and my way of thinking about professional wrestling.”

“I really want to start taking more pictures with the wrestlers because in the past I haven’t really. Last week, I took a picture with Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, so I was very honored that Hulk Hogan had such good things to say about me. [Hogan is] a legend in WWE, such a great role model for all of us, so thank you for the great words, Hulk Hogan.”
