Eric Young was interviewed by James Sullivan of MensJournal.com. Here are some highlights.

On his love for fishing: “A lot of my childhood memories are about fishing with him [my father]. Him having a couple of adult beverages, me an orange soda, just enjoying the river. A lot of times we didn’t even catch anything.”

Eating Octopus brains on the show: “It doesn’t actually taste like much of anything. It kind of tastes like salt and rubber. It feels like a little macadamia nut. You bite down, they go white, and that’s that.”

On his Longevity in wrestling: “I’m a durable person. I think I was created in a lab for pro wrestling. I have abnormally large bone structure.” As a toddler, he was afflicted with an immunodeficiency that killed off his white blood cells; having survived it, his blood is less susceptible to bruising and clotting. “Basically, I’m a really cheap version of Wolverine.”
