“If you want me to be frank really, I’m at the point where I don’t care anymore. Most of those guys s**t on me for studying in the back of the locker room. People talked s**t when I was in ECW because I would bring my books and I would study. I would go do indie shows and I would be doing homework, and they mocked me. I don’t wish ill upon them, I wish success on everyone, but I knew the business was finite, that it ends someday. For me it’s not over, but it’s not my way of life, it’s not my career, it’s not how I make money right now. But I can say 80-90 percent of guys gave me s**t for it, and I hold my head up high and I think I’m better off than 95 percent of them. And I’m not saying that to be snarky, but I took a lot of s**t for years, everyone looked down upon me trying to do both, and I’m in a much better place for it right now.”
