He goes, ‘I know how to put it on.’ He showed me how it works and we went into the shower, because I needed some space to..put it on. Dressing room was full of chairs, and wrestlers, so there wasn’t much room. So he showed me, pretty simple, showed it to me in the shower room and I went and told Vince, I know how to put in on. And the rest is history.”
