La New York New York right yeah neck back then it was closed circuit was at a closed circuit location. I don't know what the hell that that meant I went with my friend to the closed circuit we basically what it was a giant TV in the arena and I remember he was so disappointed that they don't have any live matches and I'm like no we paid money to watch TV in an arena this a stupid who why are we doing this like the fact that you're actually not seeing anything live but that's how you would see the pre pay per view. Yeah you know like now watch fights like that. You know like lobby in Vegas. I can't get into a fight so I just go to one of the casinos. That'll have a a closed circuit cool when you're there sitting there with freaking two thousand people in a banquet hall. There's TV's all over the place and you can get to a bathroom without a problem. It's not bad. It's still it's still good energy. Who are who are some of your favorite wrestlers ever man.

Tell me your thoughts as as a fan who hadn't seen a w before I had. I had certain expectations because I mean you know you guys were pumping pumping it up and all the promos again big fan of of a good production. The PROMOS had high production value didn't seem like it was wonky. It seemed legit Buddy Alfred Amen. GotTa stick. It's gotta stick as he had he got there earlier because I was that a having lunch with a oh I got to think of his name Gordon. I was having lunch with Gordon and so I'm like are you can't even you you know because I had to go the Gordon Ramsay things set up and so I had to send Alfred ahead of me to go so he caught the first few matches. I caught the second half but when I got there. I was very impressed with again. The production value it was as good it was as good as the you know as as the the other guys the matches inches the my favorite match was the younger young bucks young young bucks versus. Lou Brother Spending on Phoenix all my God that that match was just it was non. Stop there in the ring out of the ring. They're doing things in sync I was. I was blown away by that match. I had never never seen the the young young young bucks. I'd never seen them Russell before and I was just these guys been and I be- I became fans of of names and faces that I had never seen before and it was it was one of those things where when I thought it was over clearly it wasn't over. you know you had the match you had the belt and I'm like wow okay. This is awesome and I'm trying to walk out of the building without with my buddy Alfred and Tommy Dreamer. Stop US or are you going to go. I got I got a show to do he because you're walking down the best part turn around. Just keep watching ensure shit. You know you guys set it off and I'm like Oh my God and even then when I thought okay now.

Thank you and it's an exciting time for a wrestling fan and to be in the business. This is well you know coming out the gate because I feel like I had that whole. Is it GONNA be like. TNA when they first came out 'cause it was like all the rumblings overcoming out there. It was like Oh okay okay but I didn't get that from Awa. like you said there's a lot of guys that are like. Kanye Megan the young bucks and they've been doing this for years that mainstream wrestling fans have never heard of that are and do the same thing that you just did like where these guys been.

That's crazy yeah as the headliner as the headliner so that was like okay I even told the crowd says you know every time I do. Interviews and people ask me. When did you know you made it and I go. I've never wanted to say say that because I feel like when you say that you stop growing once you say you've gotten to the to your destination. Why keep pushing keep moving forward and so. I never wanted to say say that because I felt like it would psychologically making stop trying harder. I says but I says but after tonight if someone asked me. Would you know you made it.
