ANTHONY BOWENS QUOTES:
Anthony on learning from FTR:
“There’s a different psychology in terms of tag team wrestling. There’s other elements and layers that you have to learn and that you have to figure out, and I figure one of the best tag teams to do that with—to learn from—is FTR.”
Anthony on celebrating AEW milestones:
“I’m starting to collect action figures of everyone that I wrestle, so I like putting them up on the shelf after I wrestle them.”
