WWE Champion Big E. was recently interviewed by Busted Open Radio and discussed working with The Undertaker in the Netflix interactive horror film “Escape The Undertaker”, which will air on the streaming service starting Tuesday (October 5th). You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On working with Undertaker on the film: “He was fun. Larry Heck was there, our trainer. We just had our moments when we had our breaks where we were all just kind of sitting around and Undertaker was telling stories, him and Larry were playing cards. When we were sharing our scenes he was obviously very into the scenes. But the moments before and after it was just really cool to pick the brain of a guy who is a legend and has been around for a long time. So it was cool to see both sides of Taker.”
On his bond with his New Day brethren: “Well you know, we really just built a bond. It’s hard to believe it’s been over seven years, but in 2014 we were really working on putting this group together. And the three of us were really floundering in our careers. And I think what really fortified our bond is the fact that we had to go through so many ups and downs. We were told no so many times. We were laughed at by so many people, because this idea that the three of us wanted to do together a lot of people found laughable. I have no problem saying his name, but Big Show was someone who, in front of our faces, would tell Kofi ‘hey, you don’t have to be hanging around these guys.’ He meant it. ‘You’re better than dealing with them.’ But I’m so grateful that the three of us bet on ourselves and believed in ourselves and forged our bond. And the reason I don’t mind saying Big Show’s name is because he apologized many times and said ‘you guys did things your way and it worked.’ I appreciate him for that.
