We’re not going to go for a long time, but I think I signed for about a year and a half, something like that to stay in the position I’m in.

It is an accomplishment that is not easy to achieve. The WWE Hall of Famer is responding to a lot of people who are reacting negatively to this news. Maybe they didn’t like that he will stay be a main-stay on the AEW television for a long time now. He states that he deserves to be a part of this career that is spanning for nearly 5 years now.

I really do, that’s 50 years in the wrestling business and not a lot of guys can say they were in the basic same job in a fickle crazy-ass unpredictable business like pro wrestling for 50 years. Hopefully, the good lord’s looking down and cut me a break. If we get to 50, I’ll be the happiest guy in Norman Oklahoma.”
