Evans grew up in Compton, California; many of his friends were gang members. He spent time in Camp Kilpatrick, a juvenile detention facility. While watching Gridiron Gang, a film based on Camp Kilpatrick, Evans saw his bed. Later, he worked at Albertsons, bagging groceries. His cousin, Hershel Dennis, a running back at USC, was instrumental in obtaining permission for Evans sit in on classes.

On the November 7, 2013, episode of Impact Wrestling, Evans and Bengals teammate and former TNA World Tag Team Champion Adam Jones, were sitting front row, and got into an "altercation" with Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels and Kazarian), who pushed both players, leading them to jump the guardrail and bodyslam both wrestlers in the ring.
