Hey Matt, what’s that guy called the honey badger The Wolverine yeah. But you cant be the Wolverine because that’s a trademark so give me something else. I went back and I was looking through my trading cards and comics. And I said Ill be like the Dark Claw which is Batman and Wolverine. I can’t be Dark Claw and I made my attire of off that and they were going to bring me up and then Hurricane came up and Dusty said ok we are thinking of feuding or teaming you with Hurricane. So I started doing a bunch of heal promos but I got released.”
