“So, in that era of being with Edge every night, for the most part, it would be Zack and I vs. [Finlay] and fill in said partner,” Myers began. “I know there’s a whole lot of Jamie Noble and [Finlay], a lot of [Finlay] and Batiste, a lot of [Finlay] and Hornswoggle. We worked with him, which was a blast.”
He continued, “But it’s just like such ‘on the job’ learning. He’s for sure the last of a dying breed the way just the way he did business and stuff. So, I’ll be forever grateful to have those experiences to share the ring with him. I know people learn from him now, you know, verbally. I got to be in there and feel what it’s like to be in with him. It was a different animal and it definitely changed me as a wrestler for the better.”
