“If there’s a scale of creative freedom and there’s like 1 and a 10, I guess I’m at 100.”

Justin Roberts on his Kenny Omega “North Carolina” ring introduction:

“I didn’t want to go back and watch Ray Clay do that because I didn’t want to do it how he actually did it. I just wanted to have the idea of how I remembered him all these years later doing it.”
