Wight said, “Originally, I think that was supposed to be Floyd and I against Batista and Rey. It was supposed to be a tag originally and then there was a series of injuries. I think Dave got hurt really bad, either tore a lat or a bicep and the same thing happened with Rey, and all this happened before we got to kick the angle off.”

He added, “So when they presented the opportunity, hey, will you work with him one-on-one? I’m like, hell yes, I’ll work with him, whatever you guys want to do.”

The injuries of Batista and Rey Mysterio made WWE creatives change the plans to singles matches. However, Paul Wight also stated he instantly said yes to this match, as he knew this match would get major attention. He even got on one knee to get his nose busted by the Boxer.
