WWE 24/7 Champion Reginald recently appeared on WWE's The Bump, where he discussed his first-ever WWE 24/7 Title defense against R-Truth on RAW this past Monday night.
“For one, to be in the ring with R-Truth in itself is a blessing. Because looking up to R-Truth when I was younger…to share the ring with him was one, incredible, and also it was in my home state, so that was also great for me.”
Reginald then talked about how his career in the entertainment industry began, where he started doing flips and tumbling acts as he still does in the WWE today.
“So, my friends and I and my brothers, we used to tumble in the grass, and I used to watch them when I was 3-years-old, so I’d watch these guys and turn myself on the bed.” “So, yeah, I started turning myself over and flipping at 3-years-old. At the age of 9, I started seeing my brothers do it, and things started slowing down for me. It seemed like a movie; the flips started to slow down. We would meet each other in vacant lots and do them on dirty mattresses and stuff like that. We would just flip for hours and hours throughout the day.”
Reginald then talked about how Ricochet is everything to him and how he has gravitated towards him as well as how Ricochet has been most vital to his career.
“Oh, he’s motivation, and he’s a mentor; he’s everything to me.” “He was one of the guys that I gravitated towards when I got here because before I got here, I looked up to him. He was the one doing all the cool and high-flying movements and whatnot. He’s been such a huge help, big mentor and definitely most vital to my career.”
