Big E. Langston Says His Character Is 'Pretty Much' Him
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.11.2014



- Big E. Langston recently spoke with AZ Central promoting their house show in Phoenix this week. Check out the highlights:

On how much say he has in his character: "There's always give and take. The most successful characters and personas are extensions of the person who plays them. It's pretty much me, for the most part. As a powerlifter, I kind of use those abilities in what I do now. It's essentially me, but I'm still not sure how we came up with Big E Langston."

On the biggest misconceptions about pro wrestlers: "People know we have Raw and Smackdown, and they know the TV schedule, but they don't know how extensive our live events are. We're constantly busy doing charity events, personal appearances and stuff like interviews on our day off. Even in the off-season, the schedule is exhausting. People may be surprised by how busy we are, but it's very rewarding."

On whether he wanted to be a wrestler growing up: "No, not at all. I was such a big fan that it never occurred to me I could do this for a living. The opportunity presented itself to me in college. I knew a guy who knew a guy who knew a guy, and he got me in. I was open to it, and they flew me down to a tryout in Tampa. It was serendipitous."
