Montez Ford is a former U.S Marine. He’s not the only former Marine on the WWE roster either.
While on WWE The Bump, Ford was asked why Marines are attracted to WWE. Lacey Evans is also a former Marine and she’s spoken openly about her career with the Military Police.
Ford said that being a Marine opens someone’s mind up to what they can endure. That brings people to wonder what else they might be able to take on after succeeding as a U.S Marine.
“I think like anyone from any aspect of life just like doing something and getting the courage of doing the Marines and then saying I wanna see if I can try other things. If I had this diligence, this endurance to try this in my life I think I can try other things as well. I think that’s what drives people to try things whether it’s wrestling [or something else.]”
“I was 18, 19 in those photos. I was in from 2008 to 2012 because I got blessed and fortunate enough because my older sister was in the Marines too.”
“I remember when we did our training for boot camp I requested to go out to the West Coast and spend time with her as well so it was cool, man.”
Service as a U.S. Marine can certainly prepare someone for the unexpected. There are also a lot of high-pressure situations that someone must deal with. All of these things are crucial to becoming a WWE Superstar because you also never know what can happen in Vince McMahon’s company.
