BLK Jeez recently sat down with the Shining Wizards Podcast to discuss a wide variety of subjects, including the reception to Tyrus in the main event scene. Despite playing a bad guy on NWA programming, BLK Jeez says Tyrus is actually a really good guy.

I look at it like this: people are going to have their own opinions, regardless of anything. Tyrus is himself. He’s a man. He speaks his mind,” BLK Jeez said. “We’re in a world where people frown on people that speak their mind. They want everyone to just agree with them. They don’t want people to have a differing opinion. Tyrus stands on his own two feet, and he speaks his mind, and people don’t like it. He’s a good dude, man. I had the same problem. I speak my mind. People have their own thoughts on me. I don’t worry about what they think. I just do me. That’s the only thing you can do. People want to think what they want.”
