Joining Cultaholic Wrestling, the WWE Champion discussed a number of topics including his childhood fandom of Goldberg, his love for Brodie Lee, and his fear of chickens. Though he wasn't initially sure if he knew the root cause, Big E eventually shared why he believes farm animals continue to spook him to this day.

"So I was gonna say, I don't know, but I think I might know. So, my dad, I don't know if this is a common thing when he was growing up in Jamaica, but when I was a kid, we lived in a very residential, picket fence, suburban neighborhood. But there's one moment where instead of -- He would go to a meat market oftentimes and buy meat, but every now and then he would buy live animals and he would put them in the backyard and then he would slaughter them in the backyard. I don't remember how old I was, I was probably somewhere between five to eight and I saw him put a chicken on the block, and I apologize if this graphic, but he cuts the chicken's head off. When you're a young kid, seeing a headless chicken fly about right outside of your bedroom, I think that's what did it, honestly. I think it's what scarred me, is seeing this chicken in the last minutes of his life, or her life, flying around the yard before eventually giving up the ghost. I think that's what did it, honestly. I also had to help him slaughter -- I didn't help him slaughter the goat, but he hung this goat on the picket fence and I guess he cut it down the seam. It was hanging from the fence and I had to hold a skin flap of this goat. Mind you, I'm a kid. I'm a little, soft kid. I didn't grow up on a farm. I didn't grow up living like this. This is not stuff that I'm accustomed to. So yeah, I think that's why farm animals spook me still," Big E said.
