"This came out of nowhere," Bronson said. "It looked like one door was closing and another was opening up. But maybe doors wouldn't open up if hard work wasn't in the mix. So it's a whole lot of things I didn't think I would be expecting to do but, shoot, I kinda wouldn't change it. There's a lot of people wishing and dreaming with woulda, coulda, shoulda."

Bronson noted that he would watch The Rock, Steve Austin and Triple H while he was growing up, and didn't notice that The Game was at his tryout.

"I'm glad I didn't notice he [Triple H] was there or I probably would have been nervous," Bronson admitted. "But he is bald now. I didn't know."
