On how he originally got brought on as a guest for The Greg Gutfeld Show:

Tyrus: I was just messing around on Twitter one day and I said to Greg about one of the jokes on his show, “I got it. It took me a minute but I got it.” He said, “You know I’ve watched you. You’re a pretty funny guy. Have you ever thought about coming on and doing the show?” I was like, “Are you serious?!” He was like, “Yeah, I’ll give you a shot.”

On how he was received after his first appearance:

Tyrus: The first show went pretty well. Gregsaid, “I’d like to bring you back twice a month.” I was like, “Really?!” He said, “Yeah, if you lived in New York I’d make you my co-host.” I thought, “Oh, this guy is just messing with me.” I watched it back and I’m my own worst critic. It was ok. It wasn’t bad. Then I started doing it more and more and just got really comfortable. Eventually I started not doing any bookings because I was doing Greg’s show. I figured in wrestling I’ve got it. Wrestling I’ve got. I’m as good as I’m going to get. I’m where I’m at with it. I would rather, if I can, get paidto be doing something new. At the time I wasn’t getting paid to do The Greg Gutfeld Show. They took care of my travel and stuff. I was basically working almost like as an internship hoping that it turns in to something. It could turn in to nothing because… you know how it is in entertainment. They change their minds. Greg thinks I’m great but his boss could be like, “Who is this giant tattooed wrestler?” We get treated differently aswrestlers. Sometimes we’re just a hiccup better than p*rn. It’s hard to cross over for us. The Rock and Cena and Stone Cold did but they had to be huge, huge stars to cross over. I did some pretty good things in WWE but it wasn’t to the point where I was a household name or anything like that. It just kind of grew and grew to the point the executives were like, “This guy is funny and talented.” Then it wasn’t so much “Tyrus the wrestler” it was more like I was a news contributor.
