One of the hosts of this years WWE Wrestlemania 37 event spoke to 620 WDAE recently. Titus O’Neil called into the Tampa Bay sports radio station, and shared his thoughts on hosting “the show of show’s”, stating:
“I like to equate it as being the host of the Oscars or Grammys. You’re kind of directing the ship. At the end of the day, it’s a very prominent position to be in. You have to perform just like everyone else. They’re expecting you to keep the crowd engaged and keep the crowd hyped, transition the stories that are going on throughout both nights. It’s an amazing honor. Being able to be in front of a live audience for the first time in over a year is definitely going to be a refreshing moment for every WWE superstar and every fan in attendance.”
The former WWE World Tag Champion continued to talk about hosting the show, and explained why he believes the company chose him as one half of the hosts. O’Neil said:
“I’ll hopefully get back into the ring with the right storyline. I like to tell people all the time, it’s not just about the wrestling. We aren’t called wrestlers for a reason. We’re called WWE superstars because there’s so much more that we do. I embrace every single role and part that I have inside or outside the company. You can be on top and be the champ one minute, the next minute you could not be on TV for a few months. What are you going to do in between that, and how are you going to be an asset to the company? I’ve proven over 12 years that I’m more than just a wrestler, and I’m a WWE superstar that can do more. That’s one of the reasons the decision was made to have me host WrestleMania with an iconic figure in WWE history in Hulk Hogan.”
