Aron Stevens was a recent guest of The Ten Count with Steve Fall podcast, and he discussed the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion, Tyrus. The former Damien Sandow thinks that Tyrus gets a bit of a bad rap due to his political views.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
Why Tyrus gets a bad rap: “It’s funny when people say, ‘Oh, his political views,’ if he’s on a certain news station that’s associated with political views that are kind of falling one side of the fence or another. If you actually listen to what Tyrus has to say, very different story. The reason he is so popular, the reason he had the best-selling book on Barnes & Noble and Amazon — and I’m not talking just wrestling, top 10 in general — just because of the life story he went through as a disadvantaged child, dealing with racism the way he did.”
His feelings about Tyrus: “He is a standup human being. He has been there for me, and again, him as champion I will stand by because people, I think for the wrong reason, they go after him and it’s bogus.”
