Asked whether they would remain friends despite being separated, Machado said: "Hell yeah, hands down, no matter where he goes. He's that's type of guy, no matter what. He came out to my charity event. I wasn't even the one who called him. I didn't want to bother him. I know he's busy. He called me up and said, 'Hey, I know you're having your charity event. Can I pass by? … My daughter and kids, they'd love to bowl.' … That's just the type of person he is. I think the relationship we built last year, it's not just going year to year, but it's a lifetime relationship we'll have."
