Latest news on Dwight Howard

It's a funny thing, Dwight Howard, in the conversations we had it was like: 'You know, I really want to do this. I'm serious, I really want to do this.' It's something we hear a lot, and there's a difference between saying, 'I want to do this,' and putting in the effort and doing the work to get there.
[He] came to our auditions in Nashville, it was incredibly fun. Throwing yourself into the promos alone and then with others, incredibly fun. [...] When he says: 'Hey I want to try to do it', I say that he has my phone number.
All he has to do is call me, and we'll see what can happen. And if he's willing to put in the effort and transport of guys like Logan Paul, and Bad Bunny and Tyson Fury, then we're ready."
