    Did he always sound like that? Sounds like CTE

    He used to get bullied in high school by girls for how he talked

    He stutters. It's always been there but sometimes it's more noticeable.

    That last shot he took from Derrick when he was already out still makes me cringe.

    First time seeing him talk?

    Blaydes has a stutter or speech impediment of some sort. He's spoken about it at length on multiple occasions.

    It's an impediment, I believe. I forget what it was specifically, but I was in the same seat as you questioning him before and got told off for it.

    Weird, I could have sworn he was talking well pre-Lewis fight. He cut a good promo iirc

    I was just saying the same thing. I don't ever remember hearing him talk like that.

    I don't remember the interview but he addresses that specifically. The stutter/impediment is more or less noticeable at different times. I think it has to do with nerves/emotions/stress. It's like a muscles spasm you can't control other than by staying calm iirc.
