Titus O'Neil Talks Batista, Why Rey Mysterio Match Is One Of His Favorites, WWE Tag Team Revolution

Titus O'Neil recently spoke with NZPWI to promote next week's WWE RAW. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

If there's also a tag team revolution in WWE:

"Yes, the tag team division is definitely loaded with a lot of talented teams, and a lot of talented individuals as well because sometimes we do have singles matches with the partner being out there. It's a great time for the tag team division with The Dudley Boyz coming back – one of the most historically successful WWE tag teams in history, if not the most successful if you're going by title reigns alone. It definitely gives a kick-start to a new season and a new era to the tag team division and hopefully we can continue to be a big fixture in that push for great tag team wrestling in WWE."

Batista getting him into wrestling:

"Literally, I was driving down to South Tampa one day, picking up some dress shoes, and across the street was FCW. Since I was down there I called Dave [Batista] and said, 'Hey, is this the place you were saying they practice at?' and he said, 'Yeah' and I said, 'Well I might go and poke my head in there and try to see what it's about.' I did, and two weeks later I was signed and learning to be a WWE Superstar."

A match he had with Rey Mysterio and why it's one of his favorites:

"I had the match with Rey Mysterio on an episode of SmackDown. It made it one of my favourite matches because, number one, I've always been a big fan of Rey Mysterio. It was a great learning experience for me. Rey was extremely, extremely professional with me. He guided me through, suggested things, let me do things with him that… it was just a really cool experience, a great learning experience from—I feel—one of the greatest performers of all time in WWE history."

Titus also talks NXT vs. FCW, puking on SmackDown and more in the interview.
