Former WWE Brodus Clay spoke with Mark Suleymanov of inquisitr.com about various topics. Here are the highlights.
Calling himself the ‘Main Event Playa’ in WWE:
“If you look at the history of wrestling, what makes heels great is their ridiculous statements. Honky Tonk Man says he’s the greatest Intercontinental champion, would you say he was? Jimmy Hart involved in every finish, the guitar involved in every finish, DQ’ed every night and then he’d come out every night say ‘I’m the greatest Intercontinental champion of all time.’ Telling myself I’m the ‘Main Event Playa’ came from the boss, and you’re one decision away from being one. If you’re not shooting for the top, then what are you doing?”
His time in NXT just before his release:
“As far as I knew at the time, it was a complete overhaul to get me ready for something else, but obviously plans changed. But as far as I know, the boss, Triple H, was a fan of our matches and feedback was solid. But I appreciated the chance to be a headliner, a ‘Main Event Playa’ so to speak.”
