Jackson is a guest on Main Event Madness radio to discuss early interest in wrestling and working with Brian Kendrick.
The thing about Brian Kendrick is that he’s not going to try to hold his tongue, he’s not going to baby you, he’s not going to try to please you just to please you. If it is wrong, he will tell you it is wrong, but it if it is right, he will tell you it is right. He’s not going to walk on eggshells around anybody, he’s a straight shooter, he lets you know straight up if he doesn’t like you, he doesn’t like you.
Jackson discusses making his WWE debut on Smackdown:
I was an advisor for Brain Kendrick, it was an awesome moment. My mum was still kind of disappointed that I didn’t go to law school, the Saturday morning after she saw me on SmackDown, she spoke to me and told me she understood why I made the choice that I did. For me it was like I died and went to heaven, that is the kind of level of appreciation I have for that debut.
Jackson (Rycklon Stephens) is born in Linden, Guyana. He grows up in a Christian household.
Without Christ I’d be nobody. I’m a Christian. For a long time, and it hasn’t been as much lately, but when I’d tweet a scripture I’d get replies saying “If there’s a God, why does he allow bad things to happen?” It’s funny that people who don’t believe in God always want God when bad things are happening, you know what I mean? For me, it’s my life. I have a standard in my house – God, my wife, my kids. Everything else comes after that.
