If we're talking about guys who set the tone, you've got to go way back. But if we're talking about guys who made it possible for guys like A.J. Styles, Shawn Michaels kind of opened that door, along with Daniel Bryan.
There's a couple guys that I'd like to wrestle, but truthfully, I want to wrestle as many guys as I can.
I've never really felt like a veteran. I've never felt like the guy who's like, 'OK, everyone needs to look up to me and respect me.' I've always just been one of the guys that people are excited to get in the ring with. That's all I want.
The National guys will tell you the same thing - I tend to work until the last possible minute.
I've got a good team, got great agents that I know are going to handle the business side, and I trust those guys.
You have guys that are all over the field that are making a lot of plays, you'll win a lot of games in the NFL.
But I guess I like playing flawed guys 'cause it gives a place for the characters to go.
Some guys, first pitch of the at-bat gets called a strike - maybe it's a ball off or below their knees, and it gets called a strike - and then the next two pitches, they swing at balls in the dirt, and all of a sudden, they're yelling at the umpire about that first pitch. You just swung at two balls in the dirt, buddy.
You define great players as guys that are out there grinding, battling every day with their team.
Obviously, I am a huge Matt Morrison fan, and I am a big Lea Michele fan because I know those guys from way back.
