AA says he prefers to perform for the wrestling fans that are simply there to cheer, boo and have a good time, over the “smart fans” that pick apart his technique, match times, and give everything star ratings. #ImpactMediaCall

AA says five years ago he never would have said this, but calls the current IMPACT the best locker room in wrestling. Praises the new management team and the young talent; everyone wants to prove themselves and create their own culture. Says he likes coming to work. #ImpactMedia

AA saying that when it comes to creative, there are young talents that need to be more produced, and some vets that need the freedom to be themselves. For him, if you strip away his personality & what makes him unique, he’s just an “older, small white dude”. #IMPACTMediaCall
