Only one thing to say to 101,000+ screaming fans after I set an ALL TIME #WrestleMania record for fastest pin ever - beating my opponent in 6 seconds


Ok, well I didn't yell anything quite that eloquent and classy, but this historic night, I'll remember for the rest of my life. Setting an all time record was so damn cool, but the one of a kind connection with the fans will always be where it's at. Period. Thank you. Grateful.

"Next level shit," as he called it back then.
