Just talked to Mr. Funk & he’s doing okay. He just wanted to wish @JonMoxley & @KennyOmegamanX the best of luck in their exploding barbed wire match. He says the match is a good way for @aew to wake up Vince with a good kick in his ass. He wants you to know he’s pulling for you!— Terry Funk (@TheDirtyFunker) February 19, 2021

- Speaking with FOX Sports, Sami Zayn commented on fans who are constantly remarking on his current disheveled appearance.
"It’s really strange. Like, it’s something you would have heard in the 70s. 'Cut your hair, hippy.' But, it’s 2021. How can this bother you? Anyways, whatever. I digress. If it helps get under people’s skin in any way or helps me be any more unlikable, then I like it. And I do think especially now, because of the conspiracy theorist sort of skew on the character, it kinda goes hand in hand with that.
"It looks like someone who's been holed up in his basement a little while, going down a YouTube rabbit hole and now he’s paranoid. Too much coffee. God knows what. That’s kind of the aesthetic I’m going for a little bit."
