I’ve recognized him [Santos Escobar] a very long time however in 2017, I introduced him to IMPACT, World Drive [Wrestling]. I introduced him as part of that. He’s bilingual which is large. He understands each psychologies. He’s acquired a household lineage, his father, so he clearly grew up in lucha libre however he additionally understands the American type, and we’re buddies, we’re amigos however I can’t say sufficient good issues about him as a performer. The sky’s the restrict for him.

On the argument that WWE may do extra with R-Reality exterior of 24/7 Title: “It’s no secret me and Ronnie [R-Truth] are buddies and all the time have been, all the time will likely be. We’re tight. I imply he was NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion within the early days of TNA and he needed to be a rapper first, so music is in his blood. However at his very core, he’s a performer, he’s an entertainer and Ron’s a wise dude and as genetically gifted as he’s and I’m not simply speaking about he doesn’t age, however his bodily skillset remains to be, if not on the prime of his recreation, it’s proper up there however Ronnie additionally is aware of that it’s a younger man’s recreation as nicely. So, to the flip facet of that, we’ll name it a debate or argument or level is at Ronnie’s 20-year profession, he’s nonetheless actively concerned in a weekly episodic tv present and this can be a younger man’s recreation and it’s so ought to he be within the quote-unquote world title image, I.C. Title image? No, in all probability not.
“However he’s such a various character, he actually provides again as a result of when you’re in a pre-tape or a scene or a match with Ronnie and look how many individuals — the 24/7 [Title] and Ronnie’s character involvement, have a look at how many individuals over the past year-and-a-half, two years that Ronnie quote-unquote has given airtime to so he provides again to the enterprise by A, eager to do it. Ronnie [has] a saying, he’s made some fats checks over time however he’s nonetheless giving again and entertaining and his capacity to attach with the viewers and actually anyone on digicam with him in any scene, their presence on digicam and Ronnie takes them to a different stage so, you realize, as a performer you don’t — except you’ve actually been within the trade, you don’t actually understand how precious Ronnie is however man, Reality has acquired a skillset that solely he ever has actually introduced. I’ve by no means seen a expertise like him and I’d love for anyone — you don’t actually see that form of expertise due to his longevity, his bodily talent set, his connectivity and actually, his capacity to work with anyone is kind of frankly an anomaly in so some ways.”
On his go away of absence from World Drive Wrestling in 2017: “We don’t have sufficient time to speak about that [his growth from 2017 to now]. I’m extremely blessed however I, you realize, once I look again at my complete profession, there’s all the time ups and downs however 2017, October, November, December was an extremely reformative, transformative course of in my life however it was an actual darkish time however the individual that I used to be then to what I’m now, I’ve acquired a way of peace and happiness and pleasure of the place issues are going. I might have by no means dreamed when Conrad [Thompson], when he introduced the podcast, I actually checked out it as, ‘Okay, I’m going to sit down down, do a podcast.’ The doorways that it’s already opened in 4 weeks, 5 weeks have blown me away. A number of initiatives that I’ve occurring, not simply domestically however internationally and so, to particularly, the expansion that I’ve had as a human being and I proceed to develop on a regular basis. I work on [me] each morning from about 5 to 7:30 or 8 within the morning, typically 8:30, I work on Jeff each morning and it’s actual private development and private consciousness and the fruits of that proceed to be seen in my life on a every day stage.”
On Jeremy Borash in WWE: “He’s [Jeremy Borash] doing nice and once I’m requested, whether or not it’s about Jeremy Borash or AJ Types or Samoa Joe or these formative TNA years, Eric Younger, Bobby Roode, I may go down that complete listing and so they say, ‘How do you are feeling about their success? Does it make you proud?’ I believe in so many alternative methods, sure, I’m the proud, loopy uncle or no matter it could be however I’m additionally very reflective on simply how fortunate and blessed I used to be throughout that point. To have the ability to work with these guys and be round them day in and day trip, what a nucleus of fellows that we had, each in entrance of the digicam and behind so I really feel fortunate as I sit right here immediately that, you realize, that AJ Types was such a large a part of the roster, that Jeremy Borash was such an infinite a part of the TNA crew and wore so many alternative hats from producer to editor to cameraman to social media, all the things, ring announcer, stay occasion ring announcer. I really feel very fortunate.”
