"That was probably the most nerve-racking thing. Then, we had another rehearsal scheduled and everyone was kind of hush-hush. I saw the bosses were there and I said, 'OK. So, maybe we got something else.' Then, I saw a lady that I had met when I used to bodyguard for Snoop. She was his dance coordinator and he used to go to her for dancers for his act. So, I started putting one and one together and [realized] they're going to try and have this lady teach me to dance.
"So, I thought I had to dance by myself in front of all these people and I was like, 'This is where it ends. On the grandest stage of them all.' Then, I saw all these attractive women and I started putting it all together. The powers that be said they we're going to try to do something that's never been done before. The way it started, they had all these cool dance moves. It was off the hook. I mean, splits, flips -- was is it, is it Crado, Crado I think -- they had all that.
"I'm sitting there and I'm going, 'My people, the Universe, they know the Pterodactyl' I'm showing them my moves and the dancers are looking at me like, 'You've gotta be kidding me.' But, that's what I got, that's my bag. 'I've got to get that in because anything else, they won't care. I've been working on this shimmy and every once in a while, I'll do this P.S. Hayes hand thing.'
"A lot of them hadn't really seen it. So, once I showed it to them, they laughed and said, 'OK. Cool, let's just have fun with them. ... The second rehearsal, things got cool. Then, the day of WrestleMania, they hadn't found out where they were going to put me yet. Then it was like, 'Oh. Looks like we don't have enough time.' Then, we found out that we were going to be on between Jericho Vs. Punk and Cena Vs. Rock. I was like, whoa!
"We were in what we call the gorilla -- it's right before you get ready to go out. I think it was the band or prep -- something went way wrong. So, they were going to cut [the dance]. It was cut and we got told in gorilla. At this point, I'm committed to it and excited, ready to go. I look at the Funkadactles and I'm like, 'Guys, I think we just got cut.'
"Cena, he was getting his mind ready and he's in the corner getting ready to come out because he comes out shortly after. He's stretching and -- this is one of the coolest things ever -- he said, 'If Brodus doesn't go out, I'm not going out.' And just walked away. [Laughs.] They were just like, 'Well, send him out.'
"It was a really cool moment. Everyone talks about Cena but they don't know that that's the type of person that he is. So, it was really cool. So, honestly, the reason that I actually went down was because of Cena. He had a lot to do with it."
