I've been on tour in Europe and although I've been in Europe many times before, this is the first time I've been there with World Wrestling Entertainment and ECW. I've enjoyed it immensely.
Currently, I'm in Manchester, England. I'm looking forward to going back to the States and relaxing a little bit before I head to Survivor Series and march straight on into the Extreme Elimination Chamber, becoming the next ECW World Champion. But there are a lot of things that I love about England and one of the biggest things is the old World of Sport wrestling on TV.
Some WWE fans are familiar with William Regal and they're familiar with Finlay. Those guys wrestled predominately in Europe for many years and they wrestled with a lot of guys that I'm a big fan of. So I just want to throw props to guys like Rollerball Rocco, Finlay, Regal, Johnny Saint, Mel Sanders, Marty Jones, Robbie Brookside, Wild Angus and King Kong Kirk.
There are so many guys that I love. I have tapes and I love to watch these guys, and they are the foundation of wrestling here in England and all over Europe. So without them, I honestly don't know if we'd be on tour right now.
The English WWE fans are great. They're super loud and super receptive to everything we've done so far. I want to thank the WWE fans and I want to thank all the wrestlers that wrestled all over the World of Sport because if it weren't for them, I probably wouldn't be here right now.
