WWE superstar and member of the New Day recently sat down with The Daily Orange to discuss a handful off topics, including wrestling at WrestleMania, competing in multiple countries in two days, and how important the fans are to him.
Check out some of the highlights below:
It’s hard to say. I think this time last year we were deep in KofiMania, and that was something that kinda came out of nowhere. We always just try to do our best and be hopeful. But at the end of the day, whether it’s a singles title run or regaining the tag team titles, we’ll just continue doing our best and roll with whatever happens.
On performing in two countries in two days:
It’s been kind of like a whirlwind. I’ve been signed for over a decade, but I’ve kind of gotten used to it. We actually had an event last night in a makeshift arena, and then just two hours ago, we landed in Boston to prepare for tonight. You kind of get in that mode of working. It’s what the job is.
On the importance of fans:
It’s crucial. Without the fans, none of us would be here. The reason that The New Day had any kind of success is because of them. I remember when The New Day actually started out as heels (the bad guys), but the fans pushed us to turn face (the good guys).
I remember we had a SummerSlam match in 2016, where we continued our record-breaking reign, and I remember sitting in my hotel room after that match and I was looking at social media at fans being so loud even after it was over. When I’m an old man, I’ll look back and remember nights like that.
