I was just trying to get laid one night and there was a pay-per-view close by and this girl I was trying to get tickets and do the whole thing. This is after I got fired. The chick was really hot. You know, they're close by, get awesome tickets and everything, and when I showed up, you know, me and Vince crossed paths and he's like, 'Jimmy. Where the hell have you been?' I was like, 'You fired me.' He said, 'What? I did.' It got busy. He said I will come back and talk to you and then the day's going by.”
