When this move was pitched to me, I thought, ‘Is that possible?’ Generally when I have that reaction it’s a good thing because if it does then it’s amazing I don’t think it’s been done before wrestling purists might look to me for this but I don’t think it’s been done before which is what What I like to do I like to chase those moments that are really fresh and innovative and create that buzz on social media.
«So, up in the air, the trampoline bounces off the top rope, and Ricochet and I throw our clothes at each other at a thousand miles an hour. When we landed, because we were falling too, it had to be 7, 8 feet, man. , I crawled out of the ring. I had some time there to sit on the edge. I had some Prime, I yelled at that person. I got reloaded, got back in the ring and managed to finish. But wow this sport is tough, and it hurts, and It’s so much fun, and I love it. Yesterday was amazing.»
