Former WWE star says he pitched the idea of a “hypnosis” storyline for his character

During an interview with The Metro, former WWE star Santino Marella commented on a storyline idea that he pitched to give his comedic character a more serious side…

“I pitched one story where I wanted to have a hypnotist hypnotize Santino. When he was under the hypnosis, he was this killer and then the hypnosis was removed and he started losing again. And then he had that moment where someone talked to him, that speech in the movie like, ‘Even though you were under hypnosis that was you, you did that stuff,’ and then we can transition to a little more legitimate fighter.”

“But you know, you can make the best steak in the world but if it’s a bologna sandwich market, well, you better make bologna sandwich, right?”
