I really, after I was standing on the apron, I checked out Jay, which began a wheel of movement. I mentioned, ‘Man, I feel I’m getting sick’ as a result of I used to be getting light-headed. Nothing to do with my coronary heart or nothing to do with my intestines. I used to be getting light-headed. I’m certain a whole lot of it was nerves as nicely. So I feel Jay mentioned, ‘Guys, we gotta transfer this alongside’, when that is not what I meant. But to the purpose when [Andrade] came to visit and mentioned, ‘Your flip, sir. Your flip, sir.’ So I obtained in and I did not know the place we had been within the match as a result of I had missed about clearly like 10 seconds of it,” Flair mentioned again in August whereas reflecting on the match.
