WWE Intercontinental champion Big E Langston spoke to Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard this week to promote his new playable character in the latest WWE 2K14 DLC Pack. Here are some highlights of what he said about:
Where His WWE 2K14 Character Ranks Among His Career Achievements:
“Appearing at WrestleMania and winning the Intercontinental Championship are up there, but WWE 2K14 is right behind. I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember—I had a Super Nintendo, I played the original Nintendo—and I never thought I’d be immortalized in a game. It’s different than being in a football game, where you’re under a helmet and it’s just your number. In 2K14, this is me. This is my Titantron, my music, my likeness … they nailed me. It looks just like me. When I got to actually play it, I was amazed by the job they did.”
His Favorite WrestleMania Match of All Time:
“Randy Savage versus Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat from WrestleMania III. It was such a classic.
The Best Advice He’s Received In WWE:
“From John Cena, I learned about the importance of timing and the moment. There are things you can let get away from you, and things might happen out of nowhere, but it’s all about owning the moment. When you’re out there in front of the crowd, it’s about taking that chance or doing something special so you go from just being a guy to being someone important.”
Who Is Stronger: Him or Mark Henry?
“I haven’t trained with Mark, but I have to give him his props. At his best, he is one of the strongest men ever. Right now, I’d like to say I’d move more weight than Mark. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I think I got him.”
