"It was kind of petrifying, to tell you the truth. You would think that with a lot of the live experience that I had, it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but that place was packed and I learned from the get-go that WWE fans were a different breed. They know more about their sport than football fans know about football and baseball fans know about baseball. They know everything."
Adamle still works as a sports anchor for the NBC affiliate in Chicago and trains for triathlons. Adamle has done at least four Ironman triathlons. He talked about leaving WWE and if he would come back:
"It was pretty devastating to be let go. Mr. McMahon had brought me into his office and said, 'We're going to end this, today is your last show.' I would come back in a heartbeat. It's something I wanted to be a part of and wanted to be successful at. I still think about the people at WWE, because they were great. I miss a lot of them. I miss the atmosphere."
