The Gazette out of Iowa has a new article online featuring quotes from Big E Langston where he talks about the transition from college football (he played for the Iowa Hawkeyes) to the ring. Langston also discussed wanted to be an Atheltic Director and being introverted. Below is an excerpt from the piece:
“The first month [in WWE], I went without doing any talking at all,” he said. “I was just kind of a stoic bodyguard. But eventually I’ve been given some opportunities. Every performer should have an evolution.
“I grew up very introverted. (Former Hawkeye) Mitch King and guys like him wondered if I could do this for a living because even in my college days I was introverted. But I’ve always been a budding extrovert waiting to come out.
“Honestly, this was something I never considered for a job. But they set up a tryout and everything just kind of happened from there. It’s been a whirlwind, an amazing experience so far.”
