Recent WWE RAW guest star and music mogul Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs recently spoke with ESPN about his relationship with WWE. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

Performing in front of WWE crowds:

"I think it's just the energy level of the WWE fans -- they are one of a kind. They are already so excited and it gets you excited. I can honestly say I get a little nervous before I come out and perform on a WWE stage because you can feel the energy and vibrations in the room. You know the crowd is ready to erupt. But it's a good nervousness. I do a lot of TV performances, but when I perform on WWE, once I get off stage my phone is lit up. People from all over the world I haven't spoken to and people that are so excited who just tuned in. I get more calls when I perform there than when I perform on the Grammys. People are so in-tune and excited about it."

Snoop Dogg's success with WWE inspiring him to reach out:

"I want to tell you the truth, I called [WWE] after I saw Snoop Dogg. I had to put my ego down and make sure that [WWE] had my information because I did not understand why I hadn't been called yet. And that really did happen. I'm not just saying that. I called Neil [Lawi, senior vice president and general manager of WWE Music Group] and was like, 'Yo, Neil, what's up?'"

The McMahon family:

"[The McMahon family] are a great role model brand and, most importantly, a role model family, as far as building an empire and passing your legacy on to your kids. When you interact with the McMahons, it's so professional and so positive."
