“But the reaction backstage was crazy. I got very emotional, hugged my mum, hugged my dad, hugged Jamie, Seth – the whole deal. Everyone was very happy and clapping for me, so it was a surreal moment. I definitely gave the bossman [Vince McMahon] a hug afterwards and thanked him for the opportunity. It was just a crazy experience.

From seeing other people and other wrestlers finish their matches and walk through gorilla and hug Vince and stuff like that, having that be my turn to do it… I’m forever grateful.”

Dominik will team up with his father to battle Rollins and Buddy Murphy in a tag team match at Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view.

Dominik also talked about working with Rollins in his first match, the pressure of following Pat McAfee’s debut, and more. Check out the full interview here.
