There was one time in catering where John was sitting by himself, which is a rarity. I said, ‘Hey man, you mind if I sit with you?’ He said 'no.’ And I’m eating, and I go, 'So, how’s everything with you, man?’ And he goes, 'You know something, no one ever asks me that. Everyone asks me how they can get over, or what I can do for them. No one asks me how I’m doing.’ And that was the relationship we had. We always got along.

Oh yeah. I’m not gonna lie. (laughs) Are you kidding me? A little insight into the person that plays Matt Striker, I guess. I never had a lot of friends growing up. And I never really fit in anywhere. I have a lot of anxiety. And I’m antisocial. I’m aloof. And the only time I ever felt like I belonged anywhere was when I was amongst my brethren in the WWE because we’re all a little different. And a lot of people think well you’re Matt Striker, you should be the life of the party. I become frozen with anxiety in social situations cause I have nothing to say and I don’t fit in. So I think that is where the emotion comes. It’s the only place I really ever fit in was in WWE.
