“I got a chance to work Bill a few times and Bill was actually a cool cat man. The one match that everybody saw when he dropped me out in 10 seconds, he actually didn’t wanna do that match. He actually told me, he’s like, ‘Rodney, don’t do it.’ And I’m like, ‘what?! What do you mean? What am I gonna do?’ And I do it. It’s like yeah but he always stuck up for me the whole time we were out there. I did have a chance to work him on house shows. Not have a match with him but run-ins with him and whatnot and it always was good. Bill was always pretty cool,” he said. [1:19 – 1:58]
