​’Moose’ Discusses Choosing Wrestling Over Football, Recent Match With Okada, More


During a recent interview with Yahoo! Sports, ROH Superstar Moose discussed his decision to get into pro wrestling instead of football and more. Here are some highlights:

On his decision to leave football: “The first person I told that I was retiring from the NFL to become a pro wrestler was my ex-wife and her reaction was that she hated it and that I was being selfish for retiring at a young age. One of the biggest reasons why we split up was because I was leaving all this money on the table for something that was just a maybe.”

On his recent match with Ok ada: “That was definitely the best match of my career so far but I have a tendency of saying this after every match. I have people tell me that I’m on a great pace for only doing this for three years but I don’t want it to mess with my focus. I just want to continue to get better.”

On why choosing wrestling was the right choice for him: “Money doesn’t make you happy. I’m way happier doing this than playing football. Football wasn’t happiness to me. That was a job. This isn’t a job. This is me doing something I love.”
