Today we sat down with Brennan Williams, AKA the up and coming pro wrestler Marcellus Black, about his love of anime, video games, and what it’s like working as both as a pro football player and a wrestler.
APGNation: First of all, thank you for taking the time to sit down for this interview. Before we begin, could you tell our readers a little about yourself and your background?
Brennan Williams: Sure, a little about me. I grew up around Boston, MA. I had played football since I was seven years old and I road it all the way to the University of North Carolina and three years in the NFL. I’m currently training as a professional wrestler under WWE hall of famer Booker T. And I’m a lifelong fan of anime, video games, and the like.
APG: You’re well known for your love of anime, video games, and other “nerdy” subjects. Could you tell us how you got into these things and what you like about them and the community surrounding them?
APGNation: Do you have a favorite anime and/or video game(s)? And if possible, could you tell us what you like about that particular piece of media?
APG: You are a former NFL player. What was it like playing at the pro level? Were there many other guys on your team with the same hobbies as yourself, or were you the odd one out with regards to that sort of thing? Did many of your fellow NFL players play many video games?
