They have been actually unprofessional, let’s put it this fashion, with the best way they handled (me), like they (deal with) all people else. I wasn’t the primary and gained’t be the final.

There are tons of different locations the place you may go battle and the place you can also make some huge cash. Numerous these guys, , as soon as they’ve constructed and established their title right here, transfer on to those different promotions and make loopy cash. And, umm, good for them. That’s simply the way it works.”
