Sullivan also impressed Owens with his verbal skills.

Lesnar took a liking to Sullivan during the week of WrestleMania 31 in March 2015. So much so that “The Beast Incarnate” flew out to Orlando, Florida a few weeks later to train with him at the Performance Center.
WWE officials have high hopes for Sullivan, in large part due to his unique look.
“I was told he looks to be a long-term project, but one worth devoting time to just based on his look and verbal ability,” Meltzer wrote shortly after his in-ring debut. “A lot of people have compared his look to Maurice Tillet, The French Angel from the ’40s, who was the impetus for Shrek in the movies.”
Sullivan himself sees the comparison as he liked this fan tweet saying he looks like The French Angel.
