They love the match, and they were like, ‘You can’t pick him up and do that move.’ And I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And this was early, like early me coming to WWE. And [they were] like, ‘Well, you can’t do it’.”
He added “I was like, ‘No, I did, check out the replay and go watch the match.’ Like, no, well, you can’t do it. And I’m getting mad at my producer, and I’m like, ‘I don’t understand what you’re saying,’ and he’s like, ‘Well, they don’t want you to do it.’ I was like, ‘Who’s they, tell me who they is?’ And they don’t have an answer.”
