Interview Highlights: Titus O'Neil Says Money is Not Only Why He's in Wrestling
One half of the Prime Time Players, Titus O'Neil, did an interview with the Press of Atlantic City website. He talks about some of the origins to the Prime Time Players' gimmick.
"Each thing is a little bit of our past. The Prime Time Players dance comes from being in a huddle, getting ready for a game. We used to sway side to side. If you look at any sports team, they're swaying side to side in the huddle."
"All that stuff is just us being creative and WWE allowing us to go out and be ourselves. That's the whole key to any job. If you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. I can assure you, being at my age (35) and getting into this late - I didn't get into this just to make money. Being away from my kids every week, four to five nights a week, can be tough. And it's the same with other WWE stars that have families. But it's going to pay off for me in the end. I'm honing my craft."
He also talks about how the "millions of dollars" routine came about. It was the result of admonishing Darren Young for taking a turn pretty crazily while driving. O'Neil told him there were "millions of dollars" in the car.
The interview also covers being a heel, how Dave Batista gave him help in getting started, and how the crowd is different every night. The full interview is found at Pressofatlanticcity.com
