"Clarification for the many #FLATSCANS. Many WWE fans are oblivious to the amazing pro wrestling that takes place around the world. There are fans in Japan that don't watch 'foreign' wrestling. Just as in Mexico. WWE is a huge company and the most recognized brand. This may blow the minds of many but MY dream was to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling. WWE was a goal. I proudly accomplished both. I will always appreciate the opportunities Vince McMahon gave me. I don't hate WWE. I love PRO WRESTLING wherever it takes place. So enjoy WWE. It's a great product. Just don't cheat yourself out of an opportunity to enjoy the awesome wrestling that exists globally."
