Tyrus Shares His Feeling On Being The largest NWA World Champion Ever

WWE continue to give him strong build but after a while they realised that it might not be working for him in a long term so they changed his gimmick and he was now a fun loving and dancing man who allied with Naomi and Cameron and together they were famously known as the Funkasaurus. He was given the same theme song that Ernest Miller used in WWE back in 2004.

In June 2014 he was released from WWE for the second time in his career and he never return to the promotion once again. After getting released from WWE he joined Impact Wrestling where he was given is new ring name which was Tyrus.

Brodus Clay who is currently going by the name of Tyrus and is the current NWA World Heavyweight Champion recently spoke to Jim Varsallone from the Miami Herald where he talked about winning the NWA World title and explained how he felt to become the largest NWA World Heavyweight Champion ever. He said;

“I was elated, I was shocked, I didn’t realize the historic…you know you make history, but only 100 guys, now 101 guys, have held this championship. To find out I’m the largest NWA Champion of all-time is pretty cool. Although, Andre The Giant could have won it anytime he wanted to, he just chose not to. I took a moment after I won the match to take a knee and thank the champions before me.

“When I won the World Television Championship, Dusty Rhodes started it and he’s one of my favorite wrestlers, he held the World Television Championship, and I thought it was important to always remember where you came from. In any other sport, if you’re a Super Bowl champion, you’re going to wear the ring every time you’re on TV.

“If you’re a boxer, you’re going to wear the WBC (championship). I’m World Television Champion, I’m extremely proud to be a wrestler, I’m extremely proud of the industry and the sport that I’m in, so I would represent it every chance that I get until someone takes it from me.

“I surrender the World Television Championship, now Jordan Clearwater is the champion. I would not wear that championship on TV. I only carry the championship when I’m the champion and when I’m not, I’m not.”
