“I just didn’t fit in, and, at the time, there were a lot, a lot of big dicks swinging,” Vampiro recalled. “There [were] a lot of somas being used, everyone was all steroided out of their minds, there [were] stupid amounts of money, and there wasn’t a lot of room for a new guy like me to come in and light a fire under a lot of people’s asses.”
Vampiro also spoke about his relationship with Konnan and more.
