Former WWE star JTG appeared on today’s episode of The Bump to discuss the memory of Shad Gaspard, and their time together in OVW. He also touches on the brief alliance Cryme Tyme had with John Cena back in 2008, better known as CTC. Highlights are below.
On representing black culture during their WWE run:
We wanted to represent hip-hop, we wanted to express our culture during that era. When we first we came out, we know that at the time the reason we were brought was because Vince McMahon loved the Dave Chappelle show and we were doing a lot of those types of skits in Louisville, Kentucky, and OVW. We did some skits and we had great chemistry on screen because we were friends and we just knew each other without speaking.
Aligning with John Cena to form CTC:
That was the most fun I had in my career. John Cena taught us a lot especially working the house shows and live events. He taught us a lot of hints and tips, a lot of unwritten rules in the business, helping us to get to that level. When we were with John Cena, we were main eventing the live events.
