His role in the movie Tito“I have a very talented friend in Anthony Notarile who co-wrote Tito with Andy Tworischuk, with the role of Hammer in mind for me. He reached out, and after reading the script, I was drawn to the character because it was something different than you’re used to seeing, which is the stereotypical angry 6’7, 300lb. giant. He is a very articulate, well-read man on socialism who treats people with respect, but demands it as well. I was honored to play the role.”

On ‘keeping it together’ during the Brodie Lee tribute show: “I didn’t feel like I kept it together. I grieved with everyone else. He was there in spirit that night with everyone who attended and watched from home.”


The most underrated performer he’s worked with: “Neville (PAC). He deserves the world.”

Getting nervous before matches: “Always. If you don’t get butterflies or nerves while you’re performing, you might as well stop. The adrenaline leading to live performance is what I love most about it.”


Being added to Team Cena for Survivor Series 2014: “One commercial break before I was fully dressed, Michael Hayes ran out in a frenzy telling me to get dressed in my gear and I was needed for after commercial. No one on either team knew I was coming out. A good lesson for future wrestling stars: stay for the whole show.”

Being paired with Daniel Bryan: “I loved it because it led somewhere. To me, feeling like a second wheel, which is funny because I’m twice the size of him, but the story of feeling like a background character was one that was a blessing to tell. Plus, we were the greatest tag team of all time. #Fickle.”
