On Drew Gulak vs. Matt Riddle from EVOLVE 131 “
I went out of my way to see that. I just love that, when guys can go out there and do that. And there’s very few that can go out there and do it like that. That was those guys going out there and just wrestling. There was no, ‘I think we should do this, I think we should do that.’ I think they might have had a finish [planned], and that was it.” On Will Ospreay suffering a stinger in his match with SANADA “I’m glad that New Japan will pull somebody [that’s been injured], because it used to be, you just worked. Going back to the Super Juniors tournament in ’93 that I was in, Scorpio broke his leg. Fucking finished the tour, broken leg. And they were just fine having him do it. Different times.” On Finn Balor reportedly asking for time off “When the John Oliver thing came out, they’re talking about the schedules and all that, I think somebody mentioned, ‘Guys can take time off any time they want, they just have to ask.’ Which is a tough spot too, because when you take yourself out of the game… I always talk about Randy Savage’s words of advice: ‘Never take yourself out of the game’ and ‘Let the competition eliminate themselves’ were two things that he really [stressed]. And when you operate with that mentality, it’s almost impossible to ask for time off. So good for Finn Balor, going, ‘Okay, I need some time.’”
