Mojo Rawley has seen plenty of impact during his time as a football player and a pro wrestler, but a recent angle on Smackdown Live even turned his head.
Rawley was doing press recently in Dubai, and spoke to William Mullally about the dramatic conclusion to last week's episode of Smackdown Live that saw former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens viciously attack WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. Rawley said the segment made him do a double take.
“I walked past right as he got headbutted in the face and I was like, ‘Wait, what? What?!’ I backed up to the TV and I’m sitting there with my jaw all the way down to my feet. It was like, ‘Are you kidding me right now? Did that really just happen?’ And then he proceeded to deliver the beating of a lifetime. Man, you gotta hope Vince is alright. Of course we all know how tough he is, but that was brutal.”
Owens had just been booked against WWE Smackdown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon for a match at October's WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view before the attack.
During the interview, which you can see above, Rawley also spoke about his time in NXT.
