Tyrus is looking to make history this weekend at the NWA 74 two-night pay-per-view event in St. Louis! The reigning NWA Television Champ is taking on Trevor Murdoch in an attempt to add the NWA World Heavyweight Championship to his title collection! Tyrus details his current run at NWA, how he’s prepping for Trevor Murdoch, and why these two titles mean so much to him. He also recounts his time with WWE & NXT including the origin of the Funkasaurus and the role that the late, great Dusty Rhodes played in getting that over, how he convinced Cameron and Naomi to join him as the Funkadactyls, The Undertaker and Bret Hart’s initial reactions to Funkasaurus, and why his son’s grandfather, the great Haku, loved the gimmick! Tyrus also shares stories from his time working with Snoop Dogg as his bodyguard, and coaching youth football with the rapper, and explains the role that Snoop played in Tyrus’ return to wrestling.
