“Respect is a word thrown around a lot, often times incorrectly. It’s one thing no amount of money can buy – you HAVE to earn it. Even though things didn’t go my way at #WrestleMania, it would not be right for me to not acknowledge the respect I now have for @badbunnypr. He showed the world all of the hard work and dedication he put in and made the entire world, and the locker room, look on in amazement. Congratulations on having what is being called the best celebrity match at WrestleMania. You’ve earned all the praise and more importantly – my respect.”
