WWE star and Raw tag champion Montez Ford recently spoke to Metro to talk all things pro-wrestling. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
Recalls meeting Shad Gaspard:
Oh man. Cryme Tyme was one of the tag teams I watched growing up, like the Hardyz and a whole other bunch of guys. So, it’s cool – when I first met Shad, we just hit it off, real nice guy… Unfortunately, that’s one of the things that didn’t happen but I know that’s one of the things we always looked forward to. Watching what you’re watching as a child growing up, and not only becoming part of the dream but actually getting to work with some of the people you watched growing up. We may not get a chance in this life to have that match, but I know in another life we will. We’ll tear it up!”
Being very connected to his faith:
I’m very strong in my faith, and one of the things I was taught as a kid is that a lot of things are gonna happen in life. The best thing you can do in life is to stay consistent on your craft and not only making the world a better place, but starting with one small action at a time. And praying for the hope that because of the platform I have and who I am, the example I set will be something that’s passed on.
