In an interview with the Green Bay Press Gazette, Brodus Clay said he was in favor of changing his character to the “Funkasauras” after debuting as a typical smash-mouth-only big-man heel.
“To be honest, that’s more of who I am. I never was the silent angry type. I’ve always had a big mouth. I’ve always been loud. Some people would say obnoxious, other people say entertaining, charming, it just depends on who you’re around. This is just more of who I am. It’s hard to be angry all the time, I think.”
Brodus Clay also talked about being a body guard for Snoop Dogg before joining WWE.
Once again, at Saddle Ranch a fight broke out (laughs). Snoop’s manager was there and another guy. You have to understand these aren’t tremendous athletic accomplishments. Most guys that fight in clubs, it’s never Jean-Claude Van Damme or some licensed killer. They’re usually pathetic, drunk individuals. It doesn’t take a whole lot and I used to have fun with it, almost like (playing) cat and mouse with them, working on my promos and stuff like that. (Snoop’s management) saw that and they asked me if I needed a job and I was like, ‘Sure.’’’
Snoop and I just hit it off, because he liked my sarcasm, and honestly, (being a bodyguard) was great in terms of being able to cut promos and get personality. I was always the bad guy with Snoop. I was always the heavy, the one who would say no, and I enjoyed it.
