There are such a lot of issues that would’ve been finished higher, and I feel Vince takes all of that personally and places it on himself. It doesn’t matter the place the breakdown got here or what the breakdown was, I’m certain he took it very private and was like, ‘Son of a b*tch. We should always’ve been higher.’ And we must always’ve been higher.” (H/T Rajah)
