There are not enough words to thank you for all your selfless help, your advice, your knowledge and especially all the friendship you have granted me. When I was at the bottom of my life 21 years ago, you were always there for me. Thank you my friend.x

This is sad news. Gerry, when I sat by your side at the world championships in 2015, I will never forget the conversations we had! You said the most important thing: be yourself and always smile! I always said how awesome you are. Hope you will meet at some point. https://t.co/shOIREZt18

Simply put, @Fgbrisco has changed my life.
Many will say the same thing, and I believe it. I call him my wrestler “daddy” because that’s how he treats me. And he never had to.
My gratitude is endless, and in fact she is growing like me. You are a HOFer in every sense of the word, daddy! 🙏❤️ https://t.co/ynDy4fGrE6

Thank you Mr. Brisco https://t.co/oTKYUVJgCf
