MGK Talks Performing At 'Mania & Friendship With John Cena, Says 'Mania Not A One Shot Deal
WrestlingInc: A great portion of the audience will likely be against Cena. When he wrestled CM Punk for the WWE title in Chicago, Punk's hometown fans were pretty hostile toward Cena. You'll be with him when he steps in front of The Rock's hometown faithful in Miami, are you prepared for that?
MGK: I'm going to pretend like I'm performing in front of one person. And before I go out there I'll drink a s—t load of Jager.
WrestlingInc: At this point in your profession what's the toughest thing you've had to wrestle with?
MGK: Oooo…that's a good one, man. I'd probably say drugs, man. It's tough keeping your straight head and not giving in to fame or letting the typical bulls—t steer you away from your goals. You can't avoid it; you just have to let go and let God deal with it.
WrestlingInc: Hip-Hop has dealt with its share of challenges in professional wrestling, including staying-power. So Kelly, is your deal with WWE done after WrestleMania?
MGK: WrestleMania is not a one-shot deal. I'm looking forward to spending the rest of my career working with them. I'm not going to ask anyone to do anything for me because I think my craft speaks for itself. I never asked for my song to be in a place to be used at WrestleMania; it just happened. I think real recognizes real – no matter what genre it is.
