“There really was like one other person I wish was here and he knows I’m thinking about him…..Tyler Breeze. That’s my guy. We were in developmental all the way together. We lived together, like attached at the hip for so long and everything that I’ve done in my career he’s been there and was right next to me when I did everything. I was there next to him and when did everything. That’s somebody that I wish was able to be here and share this with me. But I’m going to go call him right now after I go call the family. Call the wife and kids, let them know they’re royalty, too.”

Woods opened up on being very close to Breeze since their developmental days and even shared that they lived together. Woods wanted Breeze to be a part of his celebrations for the same reason. Unfortunately, Breeze was released by the WWE earlier this year.
