Read the full interview below…
Q. Currently which promotion are you wrestling for?
I’m a freelancer (not signed to one). But, in Singapore, I’m under SPW.
Q. One of my questions was going to ask if you watched wrestling as a kid and what was your first wrestling memory?
Yes, I did! The first memory when I was a kid of wrestling was watching Randy Orton vs. Jeff Hardy at the Royal Rumble in 2008. I found that match fascinating and got IMMEDIATELY hooked onto wrestling.
Q. Who trained you?
At first, the Statement from SPW. after touring around, I could state some trainers/promotions that have trained me are Dick Togo & Michinoku Pro in Japan and Alexander James & wXw in Germany.
Q. On a scale of 1 to 10 how hard the wrestling mat is, and then how hard are the ropes when you are running off them?
8 for the mat and 5 for the ropes. You get used to it after a while.
Q. How is it wrestling for a smaller crowd than an average wrestling event?
Depends on the audio of the crowd, to be honest, if it was 50 people who were all chanting and making noise, it could easily seem like 200. If it’s a room of 200 people where there is pure silence throughout the whole match, it could seem like 50. But, generally performing in front of more people is better as there are more people to feed off from.
Q. Have you ever travelled to other countries to wrestle?
Yes. I’ve wrestled in 12 countries. I’ll be making 2 new Country debuts this week and next.
Q. Where’s the weirdest place or what’s the strangest events you have wrestled at?
Brisbane, Australia & I wrestled in a Barn in front of 30 people.
Q. Do you want to wrestle on a big show like Wrestlemania? Is that something you can imagine or is that not where you want to go with your career aspirations?
I’d love to. There are a lot of goals I have that I’d like to achieve before doing that, like 16 Carat Gold, BOLA, Chikara King of Trios, amongst other things on the Independent scene.
Q. What’re your favorite matches of all times, if you could pick one or two?
When I faced OWE’s Strong Heart’s El Lindaman in a Single’s Match in 2019 & tagging with Kenbai against Dick Togo & Greg Glorious at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring in the Main-Event in Japan in 2018.
Q. What your finisher?
Bridging German Suplex & Silver Bullet.
Q. To wrap things up is there anything that you would want to say to your fans, or anyone thinking about becoming a wrestler?
Of course! I’ve always had the mentality of “Just go for it.” Life’s too short for what if’s. Do you want to train? Go for it. Do you want to be a wrestler? Go for it. Do you want to headline Wrestlemania? Hell Yeah, Go for it. That was the mentality I had, that allowed me to wrestle in 14 countries in 13 months. Life’s too short to sit around waiting for opportunities.
