Favorite Quotes from Tyrus 

“I think if I was like Fred Astaire out there or like break dance fighting and doing crazy splits and stuff like that, I think people would be like, ‘ehhhh, I’m just going to watch him,’ but the fact that they’re like, ‘I can do that,’ it’s fun, and I think they lose themselves.” – Tyrus

“Make America Great Again was a political slogan. It was used before, I believe Ronald Reagan used it before. It was about making America great and rallying America. Unfortunately, I would say 10 percent of the population that voted for President Trump has a different view. They have embraced it as ‘Make America White Again.” – Tyrus

“Vince McMahon said to Triple H, ‘Are you sure he’s a heel? I don’t know. He’s funny.’ He decided he wanted me to be a babyface, and when they came to me, they said, ‘You can say no, but here’s what we’re looking at. Funkasaurus is the fastest way to be back on TV.” – Tyrus

“John Cena actually showed up to do a song with Snoop in L.A., and he walked in and was like, ‘What the hell are you doing here?’ I was like, ‘You didn’t know? I got let go. I’m back bodyguarding now. He was like, ‘What? That’s crazy!’ I was like, ‘It’s all good. Good to see you. Appreciate it.” – Tyrus

“I never imagined as a kid that anybody could beat up ‘Mr. Wonderful’ Paul Orndorff because Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan convinced me he was the toughest guy, that Andre The Giant was bigger than life, that Hulk Hogan was amazing and dug down deep.” – Tyrus
