Jungle Boy Talks Training at 10 Years Old, Irony of his Father’s Favorite Wrestler


Chuck Carroll of CBS Sports recently did an interview with AEW’s Jungle Boy. Here are the highlights: 

How did you start training at 10? What was that even like?

My parents found a place for me to train. I used to go out on my trampoline and throw my sister around. And I think they decided, “we should find some other people for you to throw around instead.” So, yeah, it was cool. It was kind of [a] wild experience, because it’s a weird kind of wacky world, wrestling. Especially being that small, it was kind of crazy, but it was cool.

When you would watch wrestling with your dad, did you cheer for the same people?

It’s funny, because my dad’s favorite wrestler growing up was Dusty Rhodes. You know, it’s cool now the way it’s all worked out with Cody and everything. It’s a cool little thing.
