Bautista said,

“We didn’t really talk much about Bond. We talked about everything; Pierce likes to talk about life in general and happiness and how he’s found his way in life and the things he’s dealt with and struggled with and I think that’s why I connected with him.”

“He didn’t sit down and tell me all his accolades, we didn’t sit down and talk about my background in films and wrestling; we just sat down and we really talked about life and people and relationships, and I think that’s why I respect him so much.”
