Titus O'Neil watched wrestling with his grandmother.
"I never had the thought that I wanted to do this. But I did grow up a fan watching it every Saturday morning with my grandmother. We had two options, we could either stay outside or watch the Smurfs in the morning and watch wrestling immediately after. A lot of times we were forced to stay inside so I just got hooked," said O'Neil.
"One of my best friends Dave Batista for years was like 'you should try this out' and I'm like 'man, I'm not doing that,'" said O'Neil.
In the rest of the interview, O'Neil discussed his goals as an entertainer and his transition from professional football to wrestling in WWE. The whole interview can be seen in the video below:
His interview was broken up into two segments on Expresso Show and both segments are available on the show's YouTube channel.
