Thank you very much. Speaking of apparel you were at "Wrestle mania." You were wearing a hat that paid homage to the new movie. Can you tell us about that hat? It's a New York Yankees hat. There's a giant green sticker on it that says sbu, it's the name of our camera unit. It's swashbucklers united. They boot leg these logos to there's about 20 guys in the crew. They were so nice and great at their job. I so desperately wanted to be in the swashbucklers united. It's the logo from our movie. I said if you give me that, I'll show it to the world. They said no you won't. They gave me the stickers. I do this in WWE and on social media, inside jokes and references that only a few people get. I went out in front of the world on the biggest event in WWE history with my sbu badge proudly. I went over to hug keegan-michael Keegan. He's a wonderful human being. We were both even even am orred by the sbu. It's my way to do my thing and show appreciation to the folks that help us make a great movie.

It's hard to find something you can go to with the whole family. I'm glad you made this movie being a father with young kids. You donated $500,000 to the firefighters in California. Yeah. Tell me about that. I always say you are defined by your actions. I could not stand by and be hypocritical and say yeah first responders are really important, but then sit by and do nothing. They're heros. All they need is resources to do their job. They just want to be fighting fires. We're running out of time, but you also donated $1 million to veterans. We're about to. We're marching to a million on veteran's day. People in the military service I truly admire. I asked the community to donate, as sometimes celebrities do. But I didn't want you to go through it alone. If you donate through this charity which I'll protect you guys, we have a March to $1 million. I'll match every single dollar donated from the public up to 1 million bucks. We'll make veteran's day very
