"Man it's about to be Sunday, man. Like I said, these last four or three weeks have been crazy. Right now, I'm in the number one spot for the Universal Championship, the most prestigious title in our business right now, and my cousin's holding it. And I'm very humbled and I'm proud.This is Josh talking man, we get to go out there, we took it from the backyard, from the pool to the field, now we get to do it in front of millions, in a WWE ring to get paid. We used to do this for free. Now, I'm about to take the biggest payday of my career. For me, it's very emotional and I'm just proud because I remember where he started from, when he first came here, how we had to scramble money just to get him to Tampa, how I got evicted on my first apartment trying to hustle. And now we about to go head to head, superkick vs. Superman Punch, cousin vs cousin, family vs family. It's Reigns vs Uso." (h/t Wrestling Inc.)Published 24 Sep 2020, 21:02 IST
