As good as that first year in Ring of Honor was, the second year was really, really bad for me. In retrospect, it was great for me, but at the time, it was a tough situation to be in. I didn't have anyone around to mentor me where I needed to be.
I don't avoid carbs. I don't avoid protein. I think it's just, again, about balance and finding what works for you and your body. For me, having a higher protein, higher carbohydrate, and middle-of-the-road fat count usually gets the job done as far as my energy needs and for my physique.
I've got nothing but love for Justin Roberts, nothing but great things to say about him. It's a cliched thing to say you wish him well in his future endeavours, but I really do. I hope the best for him. He was involved in a lot of huge main events over the years. One thing about Justin was that he really loved WWE.
I watched the documentary 'I Hate Christian Laettner,' and I really hate Christian Laettner. It made me understand why everybody hates Christian Laettner and Duke basketball. I mean, they're just a bunch of preppy white boys from Tobacco Road or whatever.
Philadelphia is kind of like a Mecca for professional wrestling, especially the old ECW Arena down in South Philly. That's the place I always wanted to wrestle growing up, and I got that opportunity when I worked with Ring of Honor.
I think everyone respects Rock. He's obviously been in our industry his entire life in some form or fashion. He's a guy that works really hard, and most of our performers can appreciate that one way or another, whether it's in the movie industry or our industry.
