I’m a huge pro-wrestling fan, and was thrilled when “Invincible” was picked up as the Wrestlemania theme song. How did you link up with the WWE in the first place?
I woke up and saw a tweet. My label didn’t even tell me. I saw that “Invincible” was the theme song for Wrestlemania, and I thought it was cool. But to be honest, we didn’t understand how big it was until we got to Miami. When we walked into the stadium, it was like “holy shit, this is massive”. The stadium was huge, the show was sold out, and we were performing. You could feel the ground shaking beneath your feet. I realized I had to go out there, but I didn’t want to. It was the scariest moment of my career.
Off-camera, what kind of guy is John Cena?
Cena’s the man. Nothing was fake with him. He was very cool and very up front. He would say “hey, I’m really stoked and I really like you”. He was super appreciative throughout the whole process. We did that whole thing in Cleveland on Raw where he pulled me out of the crowd and into the ring. Right before he went out, he said “go in the crowd, I’m going to grab you”. That was a last minute thing. It wasn’t planned. He gave us some moonshine before we went out at Wrestlemania, too.
