But, again, that's just my feeling and that's why I made this movie, one of the reasons I made this movie, it to try and explain how I feel and hope that other people would understand. In my mind, it's an archaic thing, much like chair shots to the head; 10 years ago, no one blinked an eyelid about that and just accepted that it was part of the business and I would hope now, in the future, that I know intentional blood loss will be one of those same sort of things. But we'll have to see; we'll have to see how fans react to it, if fans really care or not."
How do you move forward in the future training guys against blood or unprotected chair shots: "You know, you just got to go out there and do it, really. And more importantly, you know who has control? The people who have control are the fans; en masse, the fans have control because if the fans do want to see something; I'll tell you now, when I watch independent matches and, every now and again, I see an unprotected chair shot or something like that. When I see that, you feel the energy go from the crowd because half the crowd just goes ‘I don't want to watch this' because they understand how dangerous this is. So, they are the people that have control; this is how to get this thing through and I hope, not just because of me, but there are lots of other instances didn't get the same sort of profile because it wasn't done in a documentary but there are plenty of other people who are other there now with Hepatitis C that could have passed it on to someone else, and thankfully didn't."
On being named ‘Matchmaker' and if it was known or a surprise: "Yeah, we discussed it before hand; I talked with Delirious and I had talked with several of the guys beforehand about the possibility of it and it just adds another string to my bow; I'll still be doing commentary from time-to-time in some of the big matches. Obviously, the ‘Matchmaker' would certainly have an interest in being there at ringside. So, I think I'll still be doing some commentary but certainly doing the Matchmaker side of things as well."
