- HamptonRoads.com has an interview with Titus O'Neil, who was promoting last night's WWE live event in Hampton, VA. During the interview, Titus discussed Batista talking him into joining the business.

"I used to be, like, 'No, I'm not doing it. I'm going into coaching; that's what I want to do,'" O'Neil said. "Dave, who's probably one of my best friends, was, like, 'But I really think you'd do well in it. You have the size and the charisma and the athleticism to do it.' But I just kept saying, 'No, I don't think it's for me.'

"It was really just blind faith based on what Dave had been telling me, but I walked in and had about a 15-minute conversation with (trainer and former WWE wrestler) Steve Keirn about wrestling and trying out and stuff like that.Visit Wrestling Inc. It was only about 15 minutes after I finished talking to him and left that the WWE called me and said they wanted me to try out. They had a show that day, so I went and picked my kids up from school, and I asked them if they wanted to go to a wrestling match. The next thing you know, two weeks after that, Daddy's wrestling for the WWE."

Titus also discussed his transition from football to wrestling, vomiting on cue and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
