The voice of 'Rusev Day' is taking his talents to Texas.
This Saturday, the SmackDown Live crew will head to Odessa, TX for their 'Road To WrestleMania' live show. Prior to the event, the "Shakespeare of Song" Aiden English spoke with the Odessa American which is a news publication based out of Odessa, Texas. English has alerted fans who will be attendance on Saturday that when WWE comes to town it will surely be a good time.
“Every time we come through, it’s always exciting. You know it’s going to be hot, you know it’s going to be a good time.”
Performing in West Texas is not just an everyday show for Aiden English as it holds some important weight in his personal life. English is married to Shaul Guerrero, who is the daughter of WWE Hall Of Famer and former WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero, who hailed from nearby El Paso, TX.
"There’s an emotional connection to there,” English said of El Paso. "First and foremost, I’m proud of to be her husband, for who she is as a person and as a women and everything, and after that of course, there’s a sense of pride in having any kind of connection to a family like that; hat has such a deep, rich history in not only our company, but the sports entertainment world in general.”
Being a part of a legacy like the Guerrero family can be an honor for anyone associated with it, and Aiden English is surely honored and represents the legacy with pride.
“People ask me that. ‘Do you feel like you’re carrying on a part of the legacy?’ and everything like that. It’s an awkward question for me, because I married into that family, but it’s not like it was some goal to carry on a legacy. But there is absolutely a sense of pride and honor to even be associated with that entire family,” he added.
The former NXT Tag Team Champion would also discuss his love and respect for the fans of western Texas, and talked how being able to learn from Austin, Texas' own WWE Hall Of Famer Dusty Rhodes helped him progress early on in his career. To read more on Aiden English's comments, click here.
