“I’ll never forget that one, and I laugh about it now, but we got attacked on stage. I can only laugh, because it’s not funny, but anything and everything can happen. It was really scary, actually. My uncle was starting to speak about my dad. I know that my dad meant so much to my uncle. They were best friends.

I say this with complete conviction, just like our fans in WWE, just like the superstars in WWE, and the company. We were resilient. Bret and I got knocked down, we got right back up, and we kept going.”
