Road Warrior Animal Speaks Out

Since The Ascension promo on RAW seems to have caused a lot of controversy (mainly because of comments made by Lance Storm) Road Warrior Animal himself released the following statement:

Wrestling fans I did not hear the Ascension promo I don’t want to hear it I don’t care to hear it. It’s the Wrestling business. When we started we tore up the Funks and Briscoes it has to be done, they need to get on Hawk and I or it means nothing. What are they going to say watch out Mulkeys? They will have a hard time getting over they way it is if slamming the Road Warriors helps them then great! Everyone was worried at first with Demolition and I said they are my friends and I hope they make it. It was respect. Everyone knows often unstated never duplicated. The only thing missing is common RESPECT. Nothing else needs to be said. No biggie. Oh What a Rush!

The Ascension said they were better than the Road Warriors and then Connor screamed “Yeaahhhh what a joke!”

Lance Storm Tweeted that it was distasteful because Hawk is no longer with us.
