I didn’t share a ton of locker rooms with New Jack, but when I did it was never dull. I’ll always remember the first time I met him in CA. Let’s just say it was… eventful. Rest well, Jack. Godspeed. 🙏

We were complete opposites but we alway got along. Shared a lot of locker rooms together. #RIPNewJack

New Jack was always good to me. He told me that since Jack Victory liked me, he’d put up with me.
We used to do these crazy 8-mans in ECW. Jack would always be last and I’d get goosebumps when that music hit. Then pray I wasn’t getting the crutch that night! Thank you Jack.💔
