Fandango recently appeared as a guest on the Wrestling Inside The Ropes show for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the former NXT Tag-Team Champion spoke about being aligned with Tyler Breeze and how The New Day and R-Truth are good for morale behind-the-scenes in WWE.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On the formation of Breezango: “[Tyler] Breeze and I, we weren’t really doing too much at the time on TV so I think they were actually making cuts. This was like 2015 or ‘16 and I assume we were probably on the chopping block and Vince [McMahon] didn’t think it was time to get rid of us quite yet so, what do you do when you have two floundering singles guys? You put ‘em together and Road Dogg was a big advocate for us because he was kind of in the same situation I think back in his day where he was a singles guy, put him with Billy [Gunn] obviously and they had a little bit better run than Breezango but he helped us out a lot and he gave us a little life to our careers there in WWE.”
On the New Day and R-Truth being such a boost to morale backstage: “A guy like Ronnie/R-Truth or Kofi [Kingston] or anyone in The New Day, you know, you can be on the road for 250, 300 days a year and you’ll run into them after a long European tour and they’re just in a good mood. They’re just good, positive cats and me, sometimes I can be a little negative and just being around Ronnie or Kofi or any of those guys, they’re never in a bad mood and they can change the whole weight of the locker room morale and just uplift everybody because Truth is one of those guys, if you don’t like R-Truth, there’s probably something wrong with you or if he doesn’t like you. He’s such a good guy, you know? And that’s what a good entertainer should do [put a smile on your face]. That’s why he’s had a job for 40 years or I don’t know. He looks like he’s 25 but he’s probably 45 so.”
