WWE Champion Big E recently joined Busted Open Radio to talk about his big WWE Title win and more. Also, Teil Rhodes joined the show to talk about “Rhodes To The Top.”

Here are some highlights:

Big E talking about his conditioning:  

“One of the things that I’ve been able to do this last year or so is my weight has really come down. I dipped into the 240’s yesterday. I was like 248 after a workout.  I’ve typically been about 250-255.  For the longest time, I was about 305-310, way heavier than I needed to be.  I think losing weight, being better with my diet, and adding more cardio days has been important to me.  When you’re in this position as WWE Champion, you can’t be a big guy who only has 10 minutes in you and you’re barely getting through matches.  I felt the difference with those lifestyle changes.  Also, just having that last year or so to get my feet wet as a singles alone and doing the I.C. stuff really helped me with my conditioning.”

Big E talking about being in the interactive movie “Escape The Undertaker” on Netflix starting October 5th:

“It’s fun. I grew up on those ‘choose your own adventure style books’. Those were so cool as a kid. I love those. This is in a very similar vein. You, as a member of the Netflix audience, get an opportunity to select which direction the three of us go in when we are in Undertaker’s creepy mansion. It’s fun, light, but kind of scary at times. It has that horror element of course because it’s Undertaker and Halloween is right around the corner.”

Teil Rhodes, sister of Cody Rhodes, joined the show and was asked how much what we are seeing on their new reality show, Rhodes to the Top, is truly reality:

“I would say almost all of it. We overshare in general. We wear our hearts on our sleeves. We all have that, my siblings, me, and my dad to a certain extent. We were already really open about what we went through after he passed and drama with other wrestling companies. You couldn’t stuff that all back in. It was already out there.”
