Tipping the scales at almost 300 pounds of power and with 20-inch guns at his disposal, Justice does indeed have a very long arm, and he'll pursue any adversary to the ends of the earth to prove it. Ask any of his opponents and they'll tell you that sometimes Justice hurts, and the scales always tip in his favor.

A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Great man, it’s going real good. How is it going with you?
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Great brother, just a bit early on the west coast, so the coffee hasn’t made it through me yet.

A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Not much at all man.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Did you watch the show when it aired prior, I think in the early 90’s?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Ya I sure did, my dad would call all of us kids in the family room and we would all get around the TV and watch it.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: The new version, like the old, is very popular. Why do you think the show is doing so well?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: I think it’s because you can watch it as a family. It’s not as violent as the UFC and not as tame as Hanna Montana. It’s a show the entire family can enjoy.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: You told us how you landed yourself in the WWE, how did you end up with a spot as an American Gladiator?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: You’re going to laugh but just like the WWE gig a friend of mine called and told me they were casting American Gladiators. I called my agent to get myself submitted, but my agent advised against it and said I would be type cast so I wasn’t sent in. I decided to go with my friend even though I wasn’t invited. I was standing outside when someone in casting came out and asked who sent me and when I told him no one he asked me if I wanted to audition.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: I take it your friend didn’t make it on the show?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: No, he didn’t and at the time he was a bit worried since he was a little older than me.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: I guess a lesson learned for two people. Lesson number one, don’t bring your friend to an audition and lesson two, if your friend invites you to an audition you should go.
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Exactly.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: There are fans of the show on our site that would love to be a contestant on the American Gladiators. Can you tell us what a would be contestant should be prepared for?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Anyone who is applying or auditioning as a contestant on American Gladiators better be in tip top shape. The course is very demanding and if you’re not in great shape you will be making an embarrassing one episode appearance. Getting hit by a joust on our show is like getting hit by a heavy weight boxer, it’s not easy.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: You have some new gladiators this season, one of which won last season. Do you think Evan Dollard aka Rocket’s size will be a factor? He isn’t as big and yoked like you guys.
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Even will do great in the events that require agility and speed such as the track wall and the pyramid, I stick with the power games.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: I assumed that would be your gig, more power events. For fans who don’t know just how big a guy you are what’s your current height and weight?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: I am 6’8 and 295 pounds.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: You must be in the gym all day and eat 6 – 8 meals per day.
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: I do go to the gym for about and hour or an hour and a half per day. I do eat about five meals, but as big as I am I just can’t do the six meals per day plan.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: Fans may not know, not only were you a wrestler, but you also have done and do work as an actor. Tell us about the films your in such as “The Mansfield 12” and “Blood and Bone”.
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: In “The Mansfield 12” I play a guy named Monster who is an enforcer in the jailhouse. “Blood and Bone’ is a fight flick and has some fighters like Kimbo Slice in it.
Q. Mark, RealityWanted.com: I know you need to move on to the next interview but do you have a Myspace or homepage you can share for fans?
A. Justice Smith, American Gladiators: I have a Myspace being set up but it’s not online yet. My homepage is www.themanjustice.com and I think my Myspace will have a similar name in the url. I would love to hear from fans.
Mark, RealityWanted.com: Thanks for your time brother and we may follow up with you later on in the season.
Justice Smith, American Gladiators: Thanks for the time man and I just want to let all the fans know they should be ready for new games, new events and new gladiators. This is going to be a rough and rugged season so get ready for some fun.
