Femi said, Obviously, taking the belt to Stand & Deliver and retaining against whoever is put in front of me. Also, you saying that my success has been meteoric and fast, which could lead to a burnout, I can’t worry about that. Right now, I have the gas, so my foot is on the pedal. So I’m going. Whoever you put in front of me, smash. Dragon Lee, smash. Lexis King, smash. Brooks Jensen, smash. Josh Briggs, smash. Even Wes Lee, when he comes back, I know he’s going to work towards getting this title back, smash. He’s going to come back just in time to gonna go the surgery room. So I’m going to take the time to soak in this moment and dominate whoever is put in front of me.”

On a recent edition of the “Under The Ring” podcast, former WWE talent Ricardo Rodriguez named several wrestling icons who served as mentors during his time in WWE.

On his mentors: “Paul Bearer was somebody that was very close to me and he would guide me through a lot of stuff. Mick Foley would kind of pull me aside from time to time and tell me things here and there. Same thing with Paul Heyman.”

On Dean Malenko’s influence: “Malenko was our main producer [and] agent. He’s like my wrestling dad in WWE.”
