I do know that once I went in earlier than, I used to be having matches with JBL, Booker, Mark Henry, Benoit and all these completely different guys. It was a contest. It was a contest. It regarded like we had been in there preventing and we had been in there battling. It was a special type. Proper now, I feel there’s loads of concentrate on a number of the different issues, a number of the theatrical elements of wrestling. It’s a very good factor. It’s important to change with the occasions so that you get a little bit little bit of each. I feel that’s what we’re doing with The Damage Enterprise.

Perhaps he has different focuses within the firm. I don’t know. I just like the matchup. One other individual I wish to tangle again with is Braun (Strowman). Braun’s at all times an enormous deal and he’s one individual that may disrupt a little bit little bit of stuff in The Damage Enterprise and I liked preventing him the primary time.

I would really like the battle with Drew. I would really like the notoriety with Roman. I wish to battle with both of them. That’s a tossup. Whoever wins that, that’s a tough resolution to make as a result of both manner, you’re going to have an incredible match, loads of pub with it, and it will be what you want. I don’t even know who I might decide.”
