Talk Is Jericho


Once you lose a series of matches tell us that you lost the time. Title. There's a pickup truck accident that's involved in this two story tell tell so that there's a little bit of controversy about that. Isn't why was scheduled to wrestle Jack Brisco and I had a pickup truck accident. We were moving cattle from across my father's rants down to the creep through it chasing kennel. And I ran a pickup truck right off into the creek and into the steering wheel messed up. My forehand missed of my neck. So I had to cancel out of a match with Jack Brisco, and they were scheduled for Houston, Texas, and nobody knew I was going to. Wind up in a car accident. But I did so that caused problems that I didn't show up in Houston to face, Jack, Brisco and everything was held up. I was unable to wrestling till I went back into rain, and that was scheduled highly rice. And that's where drops the end of the world heavyweight championship to Harley were there.

Because I'm sixty and someone said to me, do you think you're the guy is the most trips that have any Dory's? Maybe Hanson butcher. But to go that many times, you gotta be good. You know, because like you said those fans they're not going to settle for a sub par performer worker some they don't believe in. They're not going to settle for that anywhere. These old right?
