“I remember Undertaker was out there stretching and he was like, ‘You did real good, real good in there. I was like, ‘That?’ He was like, ‘You didn’t sell it, you held your ground. That was real good.’
I was like, ‘Come on, I’ve had coaches in middle school that were harder than that piece of s***. Come on, that’s nothing. Thank you.”

“To me, that’s a compliment whenever you get complimented by the real, genuinely legendary guys. Say what you will about Undertaker, he was kind of the Mafia boss of the locker room. We both knew that.” He said.
