“At 35 years old — 34, when I went — I was the oldest there. I was the smallest there,” he said. “When you’re going back, there are a lot of untrained people there. Pro athletes that they bring in. When you’re doing the basics like rolls, running the ropes. I haven’t done that stuff, the basic way of doing it, in 18 years even though I regularly wrestle. So, it was relearning for me. Some of this fitness and cardio stuff are things I haven’t done in forever." 

Robbie continued, “I had to re-push myself. I left there with my head high just feeling good about myself, how hard I worked. I have no ego. I wrestled on TV for eight years. I wrestled all around the world. I have wrestled on six continents, over 20 countries. I have zero ego in wrestling as everyone is an equal. I enjoy everyone I was there with. It was really just a great time.”

On whether or not he will end up in WWE, Robbie said, "Time will tell. We’ll see, but I definitely think I left a great impression. And they left a great impression on me.”

On Dec. 3 it was announced that Robbie E was one of the 64 competitors to make it on Titan Games. The show premieres on NBC on Jan. 3 and is hosted by former WWE superstar The Rock.
