“(Alex “Bruce Leroy” Caceres) had been nagging me in the house, getting on my nerves,” Michael Johnson said. “I didn’t really like the way he acted in the house, I didn’t like his work ethic, I didn’t like how he’d claim he was hurt, I didn’t like how he’d just be lying around while we were working out. I don’t appreciate that.”
“It was more on the not liking him side, but it was also strategic on my part, thinking I matched up with him well, had superior wrestling and could control him. I thought he was the weakest link left in the competition at that point. It was all about getting to the Finale and that was my game plan. It kind of worked out that the guy I thought I could beat was also the guy I didn’t like.”
