Ricardo Rodriguez made an appearance on Jon Alba’s “One on One” podcast on AdFreeShows.com to discuss a wide range of topics.
During it, he talked about how it was hard to transition from being a wrestler to being a comedic character in WWE:
“The hardest part wasn’t necessarily the actual part of doing it. The hardest part was accepting. That was the hardest part because I was a wrestler and I was a serious wrestler. I was brought in to be a talker in a comedic role. That was the hardest part to accept that, to say, ‘Well, this is my ticket, f**k it.’ I had these constant battles within myself. Even now I still have them because I know people know me as Ricardo. Believe me, that takes me, even now, a long time to get it whenever I get contacted by promoters. Even now, I still get, ‘Oh, I didn’t know you can be a wrestler.’ I’m like, f**k man, I trained your champion, or I wrestled your champion.”
