“The reaction backstage was crazy,” Dominik told Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT. “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 revealed that he never asked to be put in the position he was in. He believes he was given the opportunity by someone with the power to do so and expressed his gratitude.
“We’ve definitely gotten some of his feedback,” he continued. “At the end of the day, I don’t know what people think, but I wasn’t asking for things or begging my dad. So I think me being brought into this storyline and being put in the position I was put in was definitely coming from someone that has a lot of power and my guess is that would be Vince. I’m very grateful.”
