This was right around the time where Venis was set to make his debut in WWE. The two of them lived within miles of one another in Canada and met one day. Venis told Roode that he had a ring in his backyard and invited him to come over to check it out. The rest is history.

If you take a glance at his social media accounts, it won't take you long to figure out that Val Venis is a fan of marijuana. Really big fan actually. The former Intercontinental Champion has gotten to the point now where he seems obsessed with the drug. During a recent interview, he revealed that he is an advocate for weed because it saved his life. It enabled him to live a normal life without relying on painkillers, which he used on a daily basis at one point.
