My worst travel experience ever was on my birthday, which was my first WWE Live Event before I debuted on television. I was in Baton Rouge against a guy named Daivari. I didn’t know what was going on. I was all nervous. I ended up with 19 staples and the Harry Potter scar I have now over my eye. But the problem wasn’t the match and the blood and the staples. The problem was I decided that I was going to ride with Santino, who was good friends with Randy Orton. And at the time I kind of idolized Randy, so I was really excited at the prospect to learn, and then this damn staple and blood thing comes along.

The story started with the first thing that Randy said to me: “With a cut like that, you should stick your head out the window to get some fresh air on it.”  I don’t know why I thought that would be a good idea at 80 miles per hour, but I stuck my head out the back seat window and three of the staples busted instantly. Blood was just running down my face and [Santino and Orton are] laughing about it and thought it was funny. For it being my first outing on the road, it was pretty bad.
