R-Truth Says Vince McMahon Prefers Him as a Babyface, Talks Lengthy WWE Run, the Pinnacle of His Career

WWE Superstar R-Truth was recently a guest on the Sam Roberts’ Wrestling Podcast. You can check out some highlights from his appearance here:

On his lengthy WWE run:

“I’ve been around for a while. I’ve learned and soaked the game up as much as I could. I’ve been around some really important people, some very educated people, that knew the game, the ins, the outs, and taught me and let it bleed down on me. So I was taken up under many people’s wing, and I was able to learn the business.”

On his six years away from WWE:

“Me coming back, I I think I grew up. I graduated. When K-Kwik left and came back, it’s almost like I went to college and I graduated and came back a man. I knew who the R-Truth character was. I can be your best friend, I can be your worst enemy, I can be happy, I can be sad. I can take you down that emotional roller coaster because I am all those characters in one.”

On the pinnacle of his career being main eventing Survivor Series:

“Cena and The Rock, that was, I felt, the pinnacle, man. To be in the ring with Cena and The Rock, I mean, I remember me and The Miz looking at each other like, ‘we did it – we’re here’. Regardless of the outcome, we’re there. How many people can say that they [were] there?”

On Vince McMahon:

“Vince likes to keep you on your toes. Oh yeah, he keeps you on your toes. He’s a cool dude, man.” R-Truth said, “Vince, he [does not] mind me as a villain. He just gave me that because it came out of nowhere. Vince will always see R-Truth as a babyface. He loves me as a babyface. I’m a babyface. I like smiling. I like making people smile [and] laugh. I like flattering people. I just like bringing out emotions in people and Vince knows that. And he [said] ‘you can never be a bad guy – you’re too much of a babyface.'”
