"Once the fans started to see that he could live his dream, he was winning championships, he was meeting his idols, more and more people cheered for Eugene and wanted to see him succeed. No different than in the movie Forrest Gump when he started to do good for himself, everybody cheered him on, everybody wanted him to do better. Eugene's no different and the people treated him the same way, they wanted to see him succeed. I'm proud that I got to portray a true hero.
"Eugene had a lot of forces, a lot of "bad guys" against him. Probably the meanest, nastiest, dirtiest, devious of them all was the sinister character Mr. McMahon. But even with all those forces against him, Eugene always came out on top—even pinned Mr. McMahon one time.
"I'm proud to have been a part of the WWE, an organization that has the commitment to individuals with special needs. WWE is a proud supporter of The Arc (the world's largest community-based organization of and for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities), Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Special Olympics.
"Nobody ever really came up to me and said, "Oh you're doing a bad thing, oh, I can't believe you did this." If anything, I got a lot of positive affirmation. I met several people with special needs and without a doubt, they would always run to me and just want to hug me. That one instance for them to be able to meet what I hope would be their hero is a little bit indescribable and is an incredible feeling.
"Characters like that have to overcome adversities and face everyday challenges, and they always come out on top.
"It's Hollywood, where the good guys always win!"
