Roderick Strong on How He Made it to the WWE, How He Got His Start in Pro Wrestling, Where He Sees Himself in Two Years

Roderick Strong recently spoke with WWE.com and below are some interview highlights:

How he got started in pro wrestling:
“My father is the reason I’m a wrestler today. He was trained by Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, and competed under the names Billy the Kid and Elvis Wesley on the Florida Independent scene. At the time, I was living with only my dad, so he brought me to training. From the first day I was around wrestling, I fell in love with it, but not in the way a lot of people do by just being a fan. Being in that environment and starting in the ring at the age of 12 gave me an escape from a pretty crazy life at the time, and it let me be whoever I wanted to be. It really became my happy place.”
Making it to the WWE:
“When I first got into wrestling, guys my size weren’t really being signed to WWE like they are today. But deep down, I knew if I worked as hard as I possibly could, it would eventually happen. Timing is everything, that’s for sure.”
Where he will be in two years:
“In two years, I see myself fighting those Superstars you mentioned earlier [Kevin Owens, AJ Styles, and Seth Rollins], this time on Monday or Tuesday nights, and continuing to show the WWE Universe why I am one of the best in this business.”
