How he’s altering issues up on AEW:

“Having the ability to come over to AEW, I used to be requested what I wished to do. I stated I wished to do a whole 180. I feel we kinda have to get folks speaking once more. I feel I have to go this route. I feel folks have loved this for an prolonged time period and it was time for a reinvention. I feel any time you begin someplace new otherwise you’ve been away and are available again, one thing has to alter. You have got to have the ability to evolve as a performer and I feel the viewers expects one thing completely different as a substitute of you simply resting in your laurels.”

If we are able to no less than begin them off on the appropriate foot, get them correctly skilled and safely skilled extra so than anything, then the remaining is as much as them. You possibly can lead a horse to water, however you may’t make it drink. We wished to ensure we no less than supplied one of the best alternative for expertise to start out out the right and protected manner.”

What he looks like he can train college students at his college:

“I can train anyone tips on how to wrestle. However I can’t train how the business goes to deal with you. I can’t train you ways you’re going to reply to that remedy. I can solely put together you as finest I can. So somebody who’s open to these teachings, somebody who’s open to residing this 24/7 – and also you hear that so much. You hear a whole lot of the all-time greats say that this can be a 24/7, 365 [business]. I equate that to a illness for me. Like, if I’m busy all through the day and I cease at any given second, there’s wrestling thought that pops into my thoughts. One thing pops up – a spot, an concept, a match. That is always delivering my thoughts daily to the purpose the place it’s nearly a illness. I can’t shut it off. I don’t know if I’ll be capable to sooner or later – I hope so and don’t wish to drive myself loopy. However anyone who I can see that in, the place that is going to be their life and that is going to be entrance and heart above all the things else that they’ve of their life, that’s solely going to enhance their probabilities of getting to do that as a profession. It’s very, very troublesome, however it’s potential.”

“Being a great particular person goes a really good distance and never simply in wrestling, however in life. With all the things happening on this planet and all that form of stuff, I feel being a genuinely good particular person, being good to others and being good in your manner up is extraordinarily necessary as a result of not everyone has an upwards swing of a profession. And in the event that they do, finally, it’s going to take a few dips. So these folks that you simply meet [on the way] up are the identical folks you meet on the way in which down. Be a great particular person, put your nostril to floor and simply grind it out. Hit it onerous, man. Run onerous and simply don’t look again and don’t cease. Don’t cease for anyone.”
