Stephanie McMahon had a conversation with the former WWE star EJ Nduka formerly known as Ezra Judge who was released by WWE on Wednesday, May 19 this year.
EJ Nduka picked the mind of Stephanie McMahon
Duirng a recent interview with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, he reflected on his time getting work as an extra in WWE and taking part in a Smackdown commercial just weeks before he was released.
He said he was glad to be a part of the pro wrestling business but he was never formally introduced to audiences on television. However, through the commercial he can be witnessed by the fans. Rey Mysterio Daughter Quit WWE For Surprising Reason
He revealed that he never did extra work as a security guard like most of the new signees because he was more talented and was in big stature.
However, he filmed a SmackDown commercial just two weeks before he got released and the time spent filming the commercial allowed him to learn the best from Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
“I didn’t do much security work (as an extra) because I was just too big. The writers and producers would joke around like, ‘we can’t have him here.’ There was a scene they wanted me to do in the club or something and [Steve] Corino joked around and said, ‘You don’t look like security in the club, you look like you own the club. We can’t have you here.’ I did get the opportunity to shoot a SmackDown commercial two weeks before I got released and I spent some time really getting to know and pick the mind of Triple H, Stephanie, and it was awesome.”
Nduka had taken part in a couple of WWE Tryouts (the first in December 2018, the second in April 2019) and eventually signed a contract with the company on August 15, 2019.
He was then sent to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando,Florida. But, his stint was short lived and was released recently.
