Robbie E is ready to see the footage of his performance on 'Titan Games'.
The New Jersey native Robbie E is a part of the cast for the NBC competition series 'Titan Games'. The show is hosted by former 8-time WWE World Champion Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and features a group of selected individuals competing in mental and physical challenges against one another. The winners of those respective challenges will earn their way onto a team called the 'Titans' and the season will conclude with one male and one female standing atop of the rest of the competition.
The wrestling world is represented on 'Titan Games' other than The Rock as former TNA X Division Champion Robbie E is featured on the show as well. The show was taped in September and the first episode airs tonight and to promote his appearance, Robbie E chatted with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and explained how he got the 'Titan Games' gig.
"The show was already announced and I guess The Rock put a thing out for people to apply and it ended up being one of the most tried out for reality shows in history. Obviously, anything The Rock touches is gold and that's always gonna happen, but I didn't even know of the show's existence. I randomly got a Facebook message one day from someone in casting for the show that saw my 'Dad Bod Destroyer' Muscle and Fitness videos I was doing — which were fitness videos with my kids and they loved it and they got a kick out of it." Robbie shared. "So, they asked for my number and they called me. Then, the next thing I knew, I was on a plane to L.A. for a final interview. It was pretty crazy."
There was a moment during the tapings that Robbie E cut a promo on Dwayne Johnson. Robbie says he does not think that'll air on TV because he was asked to do it just for the laughs due to he and The Rock's wrestling relation.
"I don't think that'll be on TV or anything." Robbie said. "They just kind of had me do that for sh*ts and giggles at some point to show them. I did my new character that I'm doing for House of Hardcore, the Robert Strauss brand, where I'm a motivational guy. So, basically, I told him that he was a good kid and you know, he's got a bright future ahead of him, but I could help him along the way and become a bigger star."
