Cameron Grimes appeared on Ryan Satin’s Out of Character podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including the opportunity to work with Ted DiBiase on WWE NXT.
Grimes was grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with DiBiase. “I didn’t grow up watching Ted,” he explained. So never in my life would…when you’re designing your creator wrestler and SmackDown vs. Raw or anything, and you’re developing your vision board of how that career will go. And I’ve never had a vision board with Ted DiBiase riding in a Rolls Royce on it. It’s just something that happened out of nowhere. But once it was there, I felt obligated to take full advantage of it. Ted was the man, and we traveled to so many fantastic places that I believe only the WWE can get and do for you. As if I’ll never drive another Rolls Royce again. I’d love to, but the fact that I got to do it with the WWE and Ted DiBiase made it even more special. So, you know, I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity than we have with that.”
Grimes went on to say that DiBiase gave him a lot of helpful advise. “I mean, he’s been doing promotions for at least 30 years, right?” So, you know, it was wonderful to have more people in your ear and just kind of give you other methods of doing different things. Just keep your head up, you know what I mean? Like, this business can be tough, and you know, there can be extremely high highs and very low lows, and you just have to know how to handle things and be able to keep and stay in this company.”
