Sonny Kiss Reflects On Match With Cody Rhodes And What It Meant For LGBTQ Community

Masa he made my career. He told me when I came to Japan, "You trust me, Scott?" and I said I do. He says, "You listen to me and I'll take you brother, right to the top." And as long as Masa is there I was his guy, man. And I mean he never lied to me and you know that doesn't work in this business. Masa was a friend. He was my sensei man he taught me everything... Years later when Masa retired he picked me for his retirement match. That was an honor, brother. In Japan to me that was unbelievable. And it was a hell of a match, a huge a fair. It was just a big deal what he did for me in my career. And he put me over in his retirement match. He did for me what no one else possibly could have. That's why I always stayed true to Japan.
