Marty The Moth has found success with Lucha Underground after being cut from the 2011 edition of WWE Tough Enough. During a recent interview, 'The Moth' told an endearing story about WWE and WCW legend The Big Show.
According to Marty, The Big Show found out he'd been flying to WWE live event towns to get noticed. As revealed to Wrestling-infos, Show took it upon himself to help the youngster out.
"The WWE still never really comes to Utah, where I'm from. I had to fly myself to the next state or three states over just to be seen. It was fun, there was one memory that stuck out and that was with The Big Show. I did something in California. The Big Show saw me, I said hi to everybody. They went to Colorado and then they went to Texas. I flew myself to Colorado, which is close to me. Then I flew myself the next week to Texas."
"I said hi to The Big Show again, the third week in a row. He is like 'Didn't I just see you in Colorado?' I said 'Yeah, I was there.' 'But didn't I see you the week before that in California.' I said 'Yeah yeah yeah.' 'Wait, so where are you from. Are you from here in Texas?' I'm like 'No, I'm from Utah.' – 'Wait, you're from Utah and you went all three different places' – 'Yeah, I flew myself in. I just want a chance to the city.' He grabs me and says 'follow me.' He takes me into the office. I haven't had any interaction with (Big Show) at all except for hi and bye. He pulls me in there and says 'Hey, this guy flew himself in to the last three different states in the last three weeks and he doesn't live in either of them. Give this guy a tryout right now.' – 'Oh, okay.' And then he took me to John Laurinaitis. He said 'Okay, yeah, come here kid I'll put you in a tryout.'"
