Titus on Batista Talking Him Into Joining the Pro Wrestling Business

by -

- Titus O’Neil was recently interviewed by HamptonRoads.com and discussed Batista talking him into joining the wrestling business:

“I used to be, like, ‘No, I’m not doing it. I’m going into coaching; that’s what I want to do.’ Dave, who’s probably one of my best friends, was, like, ‘But I really think you’d do well in it. You have the size and the charisma and the athleticism to do it.’ But I just kept saying, ‘No, I don’t think it’s for me.’”

“It was really just blind faith based on what Dave had been telling me, but I walked in and had about a 15-minute conversation with (trainer and former WWE wrestler) Steve Keirn about wrestling and trying out and stuff like that. It was only about 15 minutes after I finished talking to him and left that the WWE called me and said they wanted me to try out. They had a show that day, so I went and picked my kids up from school, and I asked them if they wanted to go to a wrestling match. The next thing you know, two weeks after that, Daddy’s wrestling for the WWE.”
