You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


The problem shared by AEW, WWE, & WCW: “WWE has it, we have it in AEW, we had it back in WCW … guys that’ll show up and just go to catering, they’ve nothing to do. I think it’s a problem with sports teams, and I consider us a sports team. I bet you there are problems in the NFL, I bet there are players that think they should be playing and don’t get to play.”

Downplaying the reports of backstage drama: “There’s always drama in the locker room. For Dave [Meltzer] to write about it like, ‘Oh it’s something new,’ is bullsh*t. It goes on all the time, and therefore I don’t think it’s as big of an issue as Dave made it out to be.”
