Stokely Hathaway was recently in “Talk is Jericho” podcast, where he talked about MJF, Jade Cargill and more.
Stokely Hathaway on MJF return at AEW All Out
“It was very secretive, I felt bad, I wouldn’t say lying but I knew for a certain period of time that Max was coming back. So I knew that he was coming back, but it’s not up to me to tell other people, like what’s happening. I was sworn to secrecy, I wanted this act to play out.”
Stokely on his concern about climbing the ladder
“I won’t lie, I would say the biggest thing that I was concerned with is actually climbing the ladder. I never done anything like that before. So basically it was the beatdown with everyone from The Firm surrounding the ring and then Ethan Page, I pretty much begged him, ‘hey, you have to hold this ladder for me’. He held the ladder, I climbed up and grabbed the chip. So, I’d say like maybe few hours before the pay-per-view, I went up to George and said, ‘hey, can we please have a rehearsal’, they thought that was crazy. I’m glad we did, because there was special way to that I had to prop my knees and legs on the ladder to not tip over, because there was a giant chain holding the chip. So If I would have accidently pushed it or moved different way I would have fallen off the ladder.”
