Pro Wrestler and Actor,  Kevin Kiley (Alex Riley) is the special guest on Sean Waltman’s X-Pac 12360 this week and talks about his role on the Netflix Series “Glow”. Below are some interview highlights, along with the full show in the video player:

Kevin Kiley Jr.  Mentions a Oh Crap Moment during his time with WWE:

I’m in my suit going over the script and a producer told me “You need to change your suit, we need to get this pre-taped done now”…and I’m was like “Are you kidding me, the show goes on in 10mins.” He goes “No, we have to get this done now.” So, then I go through a double panic & you just do what you’re told. I need to at least be able to switch gears in my mind to what’s on the script. As to oppose what’s happening in this pre-taped. The guy goes “You’ll be fine, we have to get this done.” We go live and they literally end it, the pre-tape was done and I sprint to the gorilla position, grabbed a mic and walked out and it worked out okay.

Kevin Kiley Jr. Talks About His Relationship With Vince McMahon and Triple H During His Time in WWE :

Vince McMahon, Triple H…they were straight. They were straight shooters and I always loved when somebody would say ‘we’re just not gonna do it right now and sorry’ rather than b*llsh***ing me and they never did. I heard and I kinda got the feeling that Vince was always a pretty big supporter of mine, so hey what a compliment to have. And I hope I am making them very proud right now.

Kevin Kiley Jr.  Mentions if he would have stayed with WWE:

I don’t know. Because I would’ve been torn. I really really love that job, but WWE is very in this way…they own you. They would’ve owned me, I don’t think I would have been allowed opportunities to do anything else.

Get it all on this week’s brand new episode of AfterBuzz TV’s X-Pac 12360.
