“Great story. I came into the back. Vince was already in gorilla, which I was absolutely surprised, as he was already there and ready to go. He looked up at me and said, ‘That’s how you start WrestleMania.’ He shook my hand. I was like, ‘Oh my God, that was the greatest thing ever.’ That day was one of the coolest experiences, and definitely was one of my crowning moments in the company.”
