ENES ON MEETING HIS IDOL, THE UNDERTAKER AND FINDING OUT IF THE EYE ROLL IS REAL OR NOT
“I went backstage, I saw some of the wrestlers, girls and guys and I’m like, “Oh my God, this is so like amazing.” But at the same time, it’s so weird. I actually got to meet with Undertaker in Madison Square Garden. He came to our locker room and I was wanting to like know that the eye roll thing is fake or not. And I asked him and I took a video of it. It’s actually on my Instagram and it’s real! He did that. I actually got to talk to him a little bit. He asked me, how old are you kid? I’m like, I am back then I was like I’m 25 years old. He’s like, I got boots older than you. I’m like, okay, well like.”
“He was like my idol, my knees were shaking. But just because I played for the Knicks, Paul Heyman actually would come to some of our games and he’s actually my really good friend. He actually was like, “Hey, let’s go. Are we doing this?” I’m like, dude, like, relax. I gotta finish my basketball career first, then I am all yours.”
ENES ON WHO WOULD BE HIS WWE TAG-TEAM PARTNER FROM THE NBA
“Oh my God, I was actually thinking of two persons – either Tacko or Steven Adams would be HUGE. Either of them will go viral.”
