“Yeah… My neck hurts… So yeah, I’m having some issues with my neck. There was a thing where I gave him a Frankensteiner and he landed on his feet. And there like in the background, nobody noticed it I don’t think at the time… I’m not on social media much. But yeah… So when I did it, I landed right on my head. And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ Like, I didn’t know and I’ve needed some time after that to… You know… It’s… The MRIs I’m okay. But like, how do I feel on a day-to-day basis? My neck is like… You know.”
