Paving the way for me, my family and generations to come.
You loved us with the capacity of which you could - given all the givens. Raised me with an iron hand and tough complicated love. A love that now, as a father and man, I’ve learned to refine as I raise my own children. I wish I had one more shot. To say one more thing. You were taken too fast.
Slipped right through my hands. But you were so loved, lived so full, defined culture and now you rest high. Peacefully. And that makes my heart smile. I love you and now I have an angel to call by name. I’ll see you down the road, Soulman. Till we meet again. Your son.

At the right moment got so emotional that he could not pass a single word out of his mouth, and he got the things started, he said: I wish I had one more shot, to say I love you, I respect you, but you know I Have a feeling, he is listening, watching me. I know my dad would be saying, "Kay fab the tears" then went on to say thanks to everyone for coming and being so generous with their time and being so carrying. He mentioned to my dad and our dad. He said you don't expect it. As you guys know, he went very quickly. I was on my way to work, the other day on January 15th..and I was just pulling into work and we were shooting that day and it was the very first day of production, and then ger a call form mm wife Lauren who said "hey, I just spoke to Cora.." seems like something's going on with you dad!!
She was with our babies she was with my mom, and she "You know, I really can't talk..I think you should call Cora though...so of course, I called Cora. you know, she broke the news to me. Right she broke the news, I'm literally just pulling in and I'm looking at the whole crew. Hundreds of guys and women milling around carrying equipment and waving at me in the truck, and I'm waving back and it all got really foggy and I seemed like it was a big dream. You know how you have those moments where you try to shake yourself out of it and you are like "No, It's not a dream.." My dad's gone!!
At that moment I just thought well, "what do I need to do" what's the next thing that I need to do". and I heard a voice say "well, hey, the show must go on." and that was my dad. That was my old man who told me that. He then said you know, the wrestling community is a very tight community. It's a global business, but it's a very tight community and they believe in "The show must go on." you know, the idea of "the show must go on", it just reminded me of what my dad was and what he represented to our business an to our wrestling business and something that we're all very proud of cause many of us are in this wrestling business. and it's in your blood and once it's in your blood...it never goes away.
The phrase of "Trailblazer" is connected to my dad's name. It means when you do the thing that has never been done. If some is a "Trailblazer" then has an ability to change the behavior and that's what my dad it.
