X-PAC on DX’s return:

They’re {DX} going to Saudi Arabia… He (Shawn Michaels) was sticking to his guns on this whole retirement thing and I would have liked to see him do it sooner. They (the fans) wanted him to come back for a long time and I respect the hell out of his reasons for not doing it, and I respect the hell of his reasons for doing it now, making money! (Laughs)

Joey Janela on advice from William Regal:

His (William Regal) advice both times was pretty similar (BOLA 2017/BOLA 2018) It was, stop doing the crazy shit, stop falling on your head. He goes, “Would I change anything you did out there? No, because the fans love you. But stop doing this. You have different routes to get over. Why do you continue to do this craziness.” Which I didn’t think my match this year with David Starr was as crazy as my match with Sammy Guevara but there were moments in there that were pretty wild. But that’s his advice to me every time… I one hundred percent agree with him. With the knowledge of concussions and how they can fuck up somebody’s life. I have gotten this far thirteen years without a serious injury so I feel that I’m at a point where I know how to protect myself pretty well. If I showed you a ten-minute compilation of all the stunts I did you’d think I’d be six feet under already.

Joey Janela on proposed GCW match:

I’ll spoil it right here. I was supposed to wrestle Jeff Jarrett. Double J vs Double J, It was all set up.
