Source: AZCentral.comBig Show recently spoke with AZCentral.com to promote Sunday's WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:
How close his in-ring character is to his real-life persona: "I think my persona when I'm a bad guy is me in a bad mood on a bad day amplified. I don't run around like I do on TV; if I did, I'd be in a lot of trouble ( laughing). Sometimes my family and my wife will see me on TV and say, 'I've seen that mood before, like the time you went for the jelly and the jar was empty.'"
If it's fun or difficult having to amping up the aggressive side of his personality: "Well, one beautiful thing about being a WWE superstar is that you may have things going on in your life that are stressful and weighing on your mind. For 15 or 20 minutes, you're in front of the crowd and you can let off all that steam and all that pressure. It's like therapy."
If he'll do more acting: "I don't know. I enjoy it. It's a skill set I need to improve to be good at, but I know I'm not The Rock (Dwayne Johnson). I'm not blessed with extremely good looks and charms. I fit a particular niche, but we'll see what comes down the road. Right now, I'm still doing what I love."
How he feels after recently turning 40: "I've had an 18-year career, and physically and mentally, I feel fantastic. I have too much fun doing what I'm doing to stop. Barring injuries, I plan on doing this a while longer. Obviously, the sun sets on every athlete at some point, but I don't think that time is near."
Advice for younger wrestlers: "(Laughing) Well, back when they used to talk to me, I would see a lot of the younger guys were frustrated. Everybody wants to be Undertaker or Triple H or John Cena. But Rome wasn't built in a day. It's consistency, consistency, consistency. You have to go out there every night and deliver, and when the opportunity is presented to you, it's up to you to come through."
