YouShoot interview

Interview

Clay talks to YouShoot about knocking out some of Adrian Neville’s teeth at a recent NXT event.

He came off the top rope and his face hit my head. As we went down, I t-boned him out of it, his teeth actually stayed stuck in his mouthpiece. He didn’t know his teeth were out until he got in the back. But he got brand new teeth out of it. Actually, he lost 1 real tooth. The other 2 were fake that were bonded together.

Wrestling INC interview

Interview

Clay talks to Wrestling INC about his recent release from WWE and being a sports fan as a kid.

I’ve pretty much been a wrestling fan my entire life. Wrestling, football, basketball, and baseball were the four things I was obsessed with as a kid. I enjoyed wrestling at night.

Shining Wizards interview

Interview

Clay talks to Shining Wizards about his storyline with Xavier Woods being dropped from WWE television.

Honestly, I knew about as much as you guys did about the whole process, to be honest with you. I was already frustrated and the walls of communication had already broken down between me and creative. I don’t think anyone really benefited from that angle. It was just confusing. It was just one of those things, and obviously it led to the release. It was just weird.

Wrestling 101 interview

Interview

Clay sits down with Wrestling 101 to discuss working for Vince McMahon in WWE and his run in NXT.

He is the boss, he was a gentleman, he tells you exactly what he thinks, if he likes it, he tells you you’ve done a good job, if he doesn’t like something he lets you know about that as well.

Wrestling101.com interview

Interview

Clay talks about returning to WWE in 2010:

When I returned in 2010 and went back to FCW it was a completely different place. During my original run we were training in a basement with no air conditioning and everybody relied on each other. When I came back there was a state of the art TV studio, three rings, and all kinds of trainers and writers, it was completely different, I didn’t recognise the place. Steve Keirn along with Norman Smiley and Dr. Tom did a really good job of turning that place around and making it into something special.

VOC Nation interview

Interview

Clay speaks to VOC Nation about social media and his favorite gimmick.

Funkasaurus. It was a lot of fun. That was a chance to do a character that hadn’t been done in a really long time. Probably not since Junkyard Dog. and to bring fans back into the ring, the interaction, to make them part of it, I enjoyed that. That’s something that I’m always glad I took that risk. I can be tough any day of the week and honestly, the way in America, if you stare at people, you’re automatically tough.

Who’s Slamming Who interview

Interview

Clay sits down with Who’s Slamming Who to discuss his WWE release and Wrestlemania 29.

If I’m not able to be out there and contribute I don’t want to be there. If you’re not going to bring it, then sitting around on the sidelines is not something I want to do. I was a little bit frustrated. This is where creative [was] in one of those funks where they don’t know what to do. I probably could have handled it a little better but I’m one of those guys who, when I’m frustrated, do not get vocal.

The Roman Show interview

Interview

Clay sits down with The Roman Show to discuss WWE and John Cena.

He is a pro. He comes to work everyday. He is straight forward and tells you exactly what it is. One of my things was I didn’t get to work a match with him. I would have dropped the weight I did and keep the muscle I have.

Wrestling365 interview

Interview

Clay talks to Wrestling365 aboutwhat he thought his WWE character was going to be.

Initially, I had spent the last 7-8 months to the better part of a year training with the idea that I was going to be ‘the juggernaut,’ destroy all that stuff and those vignettes were a lot of hard work.

RCWR interview

Interview

Clay talks to The RCWR Show about getting into the wrestling industry and his interest in the sport as a young man.

The first time mostly, I was always a lifelong wrestling fan. I actually tried a couple of times to get into wrestling and all failed miserably. I went to a wrestling school in Canada. That did not work out well, I think I was out there for like a week. I saw that was not going anywhere. I called the Power Plant (WCW) a couple of times. They never picked up though.

Brodus Clay born in Pasadena, Calif.

Birth

Clay (George Murdoch) is born in Pasadena, Calif. He has a troubled childhood with an abusive father.

My childhood was not anything close to normal. And as far as bullying goes, I learned about bullying first hand in my house. My biological father would physically abuse my mother and myself and my brother constantly, so at a very young age I learned very quickly what a bully is at the highest level.
