Pro Wrestling is the perfect excuse to no show on the social scene. As a pro wrestler, at some point you’re simply in pain every day. Plain and simple. So if you can’t handle it, go buy a sock collection, and some magic markers and start putting on puppet shows in your living room. With all the hardships though, being a pro wrestler is the greatest thing ever. Period.
Do you pay attention to other federations or follow other wrestlers?
I pay attention to other promotions, but mostly just keep track of talent because you never know who’s going to be staring you down from across the ring. Most independent wrestling products are so horrible and painful to watch that I just look out for workers/wrestlers, as to stay informed and current. If anything I keep up with WWE pay per views to see the model we should be following and learning from because it’s the fed. They know what they’re doing. No one is perfect and we can point out all the flaws we want, but it’s the fed and their sh#t is gospel.
What would be your dream match?
Dream match?? Not going to happen. Would have been to work the Road Warriors or to team up with one of them. Not going to happen, but does it really matter.
What would you say is your greatest accomplishment in the sport of professional wrestling?
My greatest accomplishment in this sport is not spending time on my knees and being true to the industry. So many c##ksuckers and people that give the sport a bad name again and again and again. I can proudly say that isn’t me. As long as I do well by this sport and my mentors Mike Kehner and Jon Trosky, I have accomplished all I need.
What is your most memorable match?
My most memorable match hasn’t happened, but when it does it will be at the Sanctuary as the Savage God King.
Who are/were some your favorite wrestlers and why?
The Road Warriors were/are my favorite wrestlers. They are the reason I started lifting weights when I was a kid. Honorable mentions: Nikita Koloff, the original Four Horsemen, Paul Orndorff, the Spoiler, Jake the Snake, Macho man, Stan Hansen, Phil Collins… The theme there is they are all individuals that are not to be f##ked with in or out of the ring. Real men that will work with you or f##k you up legitimately. They were intense as hell and had style. Did it big and did it alot.
What needs to be accomplished in your eyes to be able to look back and call your career a success when it’s all over?
My career will be a success when it’s over when I make something of the Sanctuary: Wrestling’s Last Hope, which is located in Hazleton Pa and operating out of the church of Doomsday Jesus. It’s all I want and all I need. This June will be the one year anniversary of the company. We are new and I will get our name on the map and respected if it kills me. That will be my legacy. Helping to build the Sanctuary and being the first wrestler others think of when it’s mentioned. Doing good by Jon Trosky and helping make his beautiful vision a success. I believe in this company as much as I believe in myself and I’ll die in my attempts to get them the recognition they deserve.
