“So when I was eight years old that’s when I first ever saw WWE and that’s what set everything up for me. So later on, being twelve years old, my mum was always in the gym and at twelve years old… I started working out with my mum and the reason I started working out was for hopes of going to the WWE.”
The 25-year-old would continue revealing that due to Gold Gym’s age policy his mum had to sneak him into the gym when he first started training back in 2009.
“You had to be thirteen to go into the gym [Gold’s Gym] but she [mum] would sneak me in and say I was thirteen because she was a good mum.”
