Honestly, it was legitimately because Batista won. I’m not good with wrestling, I swear.
It’s the biggest show of the year for us. It’s in front of 70,000 people. People from all over the world travel to whatever city we’re in. I just want to go out there and put on a performance that makes people proud and makes me worthy of all these cheers and everything, the adulation that I’ve been getting from the people.
You know, Bryan winning the title at WrestleMania really was the one thing that brought back the incredible feeling that wrestling gives whether you’re entirely new to the experience or young and passionate.
And, of course, made me realise that the time I cried relentlessly when Batista won the world title at Unforgiven ‘07 in a god-awful match, well, that wasn’t such a bad thing. Because moments like that in wrestling are really great when you’re that hooked. I don’t know. It’s really cool.
