On the latest edition of Dark Side of the Ring: After Dark, he commented on wrestling Bob Holly for nine minutes while unconscious: “I was slapped by Bob Holly and was out on my feet on a match on Velocity and I wrestled for nine minutes, unconscious, and I woke up with him giving me his finish.

And I don’t remember the match, I remember nothing until waking up, and I was like, why am I sleeping in the middle of the ring, and then the match was over and the ref was like get out of the ring. But I was out for at least six, seven minutes but I was on autopilot and finished the entire match and I was fine, except for then I kept repeating to Bob, ‘Hey man, how was everything,’ because I didn’t really know Bob, Bob’s a bit of a, he was a bit of a jerk back then, but it actually made us closer, and then I confided in him, because I was new to WWE and I was like, ‘Um, I don’t remember the match after you slapped me.’ And he was like, ‘Really?’ And he goes, ‘You were great.’ And I was like, ‘Maybe I should wrestle more unconscious.' ”
