“For myself. I’m doing it for myself. I’ve had a f*cking crazy life – had a crazy life. I’m sorry if I get all emotional and sh*t. I’ve done this for 35 years. I’ve always done it for my family. I’ve done it for my fans all over the world. I’ve gone into the ring and just let it all out because I love what I do. I love what I represent for people. But I’m finally doing it for myself. I’m doing it for my kids – for Devon, for Jacob, for Tatiana, for little Oscar, for Victoria, you know, for myself especially. I can’t f*cking wait. Can’t f*cking wait.”
