In an interview with the UK’s Caernarfon Herald, Griffiths explains how he connected with WWE. “I was preparing for the Paul O’Grady show when someone from the WWE phoned me asking if I could go and see them,” he said. “They were hosting a show at the 02 arena in London at the time so I went down and had a word with them and they said they had an interest in taking me over there.”

He added, “I was overjoyed, I stayed around for a bit of the show and it was nice to see some of the wrestlers in the flesh. I also met Shane McMahon briefly and shook hands with him.”
