Former WWE Superstar, Gangrel, recently spoke to WSVN-TV Miami Entertainment reporter Chris Van Vliet about training current WWE star, Rusev and more. Below are some highlights of the interview with a h/t to for the transcription.

Gangrel on training Rusev:

“He’s always been a good guy and had a funny personality but I think his wife is a good asset to him, she brings a lot of the clown out in him. He deserves everything he’s got, he’s like the American dream. He moved from Bulgaria to become a pro wrestler so he came to that wrestling school, he trained and he worked three jobs. We had classes back then in the morning and in the afternoon, so he would literally sleep in the car in between the classes. He wouldn’t go home so he wouldn’t miss the classes or miss a shift at work. He really, really put the time and the work in and was totally dedicated. I couldn’t be prouder of him.”

On The Broods entrance theme:

“If you have the right skills and technology to play it backwards, the guy who did the music, Jim Johnston was a big Beatles fan, so it says ‘I buried Paul, walk with me.’”

Being particular about blood:

“I’m particular about my blood, I like a zesty mint. It’s stage blood, but it’s a zesty mint. I won’t use anything but a zesty mint. When I’m shipping it in, I’ll pay the extra $5 just to make sure it’s the zesty mint. As a vampire, I always have some fresh breath.”

What made the Attitude Era great:

“The greatest thing about the Attitude Era is everybody had a storyline from Funaki to myself to The Rock. As high up the food chain as you could go, to the bottom. Every win and loss meant something. Nothing was just wasted. They didn’t just throw matches together because it sounded good. Even if you were going out there on Jakked and you got a win on Jakked or if somebody beat you on an early segment on Raw, it all meant something.”
