In an interview on Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour Visionaries, he said, “I felt he was proud of me when I became successful in an industry that he has given his life to. So, my father, for a lot of you guys who don’t know, he was a professional wrestler. And my grandfather was a professional wrestler too.”
