“Oh, three days? Maybe four days, tops, “Hawkins said. Fighter of the warning they gave him of his match at WrestleMania 35. “We left that RAW, six days out, we weren’t even sure we were going to have the match or if that was really happening. It was kind of, not stealing from another podcast, it was a rumor and a hint. No one had officially told us or anything.
I’m pretty sure we were at an Axxess appearance or something and our phones started exploding that someone had gotten the show and was on that all-match thing and stuff. Maybe later that day, the producer communicated with us like, “Hey, I have your date. It’s happening. ” So, it was very, very last minute. I mean Matt and I were sitting together at the Axxess firm. And it was like Twitter, everything, all of the above. Everything was happening at the same time. “
He added about the streak: “I tell people this all the time, I hugged the streak a lot and it was honestly a lot of fun. It was like a magic trick. I took the politics out of professional wrestling and that’s impossible any other way, right? Everyone shows up hoping “Oh, I hope this is the day.” Am I going to get a push? Will I get a win? This or that ”. I literally eliminated all of that from my life.
I’d introduce myself and say, “What’s this guy’s finisher? Oh, amazing. I’m going to take it the best I can, because that’s literally my job now, because I’ve fully embraced this streak. It was a lot of fun. So what I would try not to do, and I never really did, was to think about how it would end. Because I felt like it would go crazy and I was really enjoying it. So what’s the point? So I could never have conjured all of this. “
