"Because I may have now, but WWE got me into because it was a brain injury. The shepherd center in Atlanta, which is the three top places in the world and the shepherd centers one of them for brain injuries one and that's the one in America. And it's poor people have to wait for years to get into there. They got me in there and I felt bad about it because there was people in there that needed it and I didn't feel like I did, but I was in there. And then they recommended I had all these treatments and I breezed through all these treatments in 6 weeks. I had to learn that just balancing all these things. But at the same time, my legs are swelling up worse and all this stuff. And I'm just trying to walk and I'm thinking it's the head injury. I'm not sure, you know, because I know I've got a bad wrestle for all ages. All this stuff and I'm like, gasping for air and anyway, eventually I come back to work. I think it was, I came back for a couple of months. That year I went to bowler. And I saw a few people and it was a great show and I used to really enjoy going out there and watching the show. I had a wonderful job because not only did I get it wasn't the job or whatever anybody wants to think. I got to watch a lot of really great wrestlers do the thing. I like I'm from a different country. I come from a different style. I went to different countries. I love different styles of dressing. I just like wrestling. As long as I don't care if it's what you're I have a things that I like to see, but I don't care as long as you put in effort in. There's no right and wrong. It's whatever works. Connecting with your audience. Well, keeping the people who are paying you happy. It's really the number one back to that. That's the number one thing in wrestling. Second thing is connecting with the fans. If you can connect somehow and or get paid, that's it. That's what you got to do, right? Somehow. The extra stuff is all whatever you want to make out of it. So I went to that show, but I was stood up for I used to do the two nights because the last night wasn't the tournament. It was at the tournament final. Yeah, I got seen everybody, but sometimes I did sometimes they didn't, but I was struggling. I was struggling. My wife come with me because she likes LA. She's no interest in wrestling. I was 17. She never liked this. She was watching. She was at the hotel. We tried to walk up from the old town in Santa Monica to the local shopping center. I couldn't even walk there. I was that out of breath. And my legs were so swollen, but let me teeth, go to the show. Stand at the back. I used to stand and give one of the tricks away. I used to always find a spot where I could stand and look at it. Eye level. Of the ring, because I knew that's what the cameras would pick up. So I never went to anybody and I don't try and push advice from people. I did, if I'm an NXT and I'm just trying to help, if somebody asked me for help, I'm going to help them. They might not like what they're going to hear sometimes. But it was, I was looking at it from a TV standpoint or trying to help get these fellas jobs or ladies whoever it was I was watching when I went to any independent shows. I would stand and watch and then you can see through the tricks. And so I'd say they're probably coming to me asking me, how can I do that? And I go, maybe you want to do this detail stuff because that will I'm thinking of it hard cameras will pick that up and see through your tricky I was a big thing of not giving my tricks away. That was one thing that I can all mean. I might not as people incredible wrestlers far more incredible than mines and you're one of them with the incredible mind to know when to do the right thing at the right time. But I can say it's probably me and the other people that know we might be the best detail wrestlers around because you can not see through our tricks. I agree, right? I agree. And I can't go off any fear. You know, 'cause I've gone the top rope. I get a nosebleed. But anything. I own up to it. I know what I can do and what I can. But detail is what I do. And you might not like it if you ask somebody trying to help you because I'm trying to tell you how to get you a gig because I know that's what they're going to. If you can't fit in quickly, as a wrestler, you're expected to get there and in NXT and get on board. You haven't got the two years and athletes got. Yeah. You might have 6 months. I want you to be as ready for it as you can. Right. It might be not what you want to win. It might be a shock to you as a takeaway. You can take it however you want, and I'll be people come on, I would never go to anybody and think that I know what I'm telling them, but if they ask me. And a lot of times, why are you dropping yourself on your head fellas? Please don't do that. Please. I can't keep dropping yourselves on your head. Well, and when people say, well, it's okay. It's not okay. One of these times it won't be. Yeah, once is enough. This is enough. And you don't want to go through what I've gone through and I've just told you some of what I've got and it's only some of the accidents. Excruciating pain of being 8 days sat up with spinal fluid getting drained off. You don't want to go with that. So anyway. Calm down quickly. A few months later, I don't know exactly the time frame, but November. The semi for a scan because I'm not like my legs are swelling and they do a scan of my abdomen or abdomen. And luckily, again, fortunately for me, that's a cardiologist in the room. And this lady went this lady saved my life. She went, hang on a minute. There's something above that that doesn't look right. But they couldn't scan there again because you've already been injected with this Friday, injected with a diet. So we need to do another scan, but we can't do it now because you've just, we can only do one because of the fluid fluid. Come back Monday. I go back Monday, I get a scan of my scan that I'd never had before. Some type of scan, I get that. I go back Monday, right. You have got to, sorry, I went home within an hour of me being in the house. My cardiologist called me going, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I'm going, why? Why? Why?.

You know, it's going to be a long road of recovery still for him, but he was actually able to come home, which was a big deal for him. He was very tired as you can imagine. There were rumors that he may get out and just kind of wave, but he didn't. He drove by and we didn't get a chance to talk to him because he was so exhausted, but I talked to an officer who was in the motorcade with him, and he just said that he was overwhelmed with emotion and just literally in tears by watching all of these Dangers and a lot of co workers and family and friends to what a great scene there in Carrollton, Tyisha Fernandes from Channel two action News joining us on the program at sometimes we see the police community gather from from other jurisdictions.

Harrelson it I mean, it looks I hate to say it, but, you know, when you see these funerals for police and you see the motorcade, it was very similar to that which I think is great because you want to give people their flowers while they're here. And today they gave Sergeant Rob Holloway his flowers in person, Teresa Fernandez, so the police cars performed procession again, thankfully, not a funeral procession. It's a coming home procession from Atlanta. Out to Carroll County. The other officers injured. Do we know their status? Are they okay? They all have been discharged from the hospital. This was the only officer at the Shepherd Center. I believe Sergeant Holloway was the worst injured. The others were discharged a while ago. But I believe everyone is still in recovery mode.
