Butch acquired the space with family members.

Coming up this weekend is WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia and during the show, Butch and Ridge Holland are scheduled to challenge The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships.

Going into the event, Butch guest appeared on Ryan Satin’s ‘Out of Character’ podcast. Towards the conclusion of the interview, he shared that he’s opening a gym in his home-city of Birmingham, England.

He added that himself, his brother and cousin acquired the property and they’re putting a lot of time into it. Once they put the finishing touches on, they’ll be ready to promote it.

I actually just opened up a gym back in Birmingham back home, which is a new, really exciting thing in my life. So yeah, that’s something I haven’t really fully promoted yet. I’m still getting it right and getting it set up but that’s taking a lot of time, a lot of attention at the minute so, that’s definitely something I’m excited to share properly once we’re in a place to.

It’s just a local gym in sort of the area I grew up in-in Birmingham. It’s been running for like the past 25 years or so but, myself, my brother and one of my cousins have just acquired it and we’re putting a lot into it and trying to make it the best it can be so I’m excited to get home and put the finishing touches on it and then properly promote it to the world.

Butch and Ridge are on WWE’s European tour and they’ve wrestled Imperium (Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser) and The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) on the tour thus far.
