Danial Husain is the current Champion of Singapore Pro Wrestling, The Butcherman! He loves to eat the meat of all kinds like chicken, lamb, deer, camel, and of course human meat.
He transformed into ‘The Butcherman’ when he was biting his nails one day, and accidentally bit his hand. His hand started to pulsate, the world started to shake, and a butcher’s knife came from the sky and landed in front of him.
What was even scarier than that, was the knife started talking to him! She told him that he is destined to be a professional wrestler! And he looked back since.

I recently had a chance to interview him. Please read the full interview below.
Q. Currently which promotion are you wrestling for?
Currently, I am wrestling for SPW (Singapore Pro Wrestling/Slaughter Pro Wrestling/Scrumptious Pro Wrestling/Sniffable Pro Wrestling) It has been my home promotion for 3 years. I have had many delicious matches and special moments in SPW, and I am proud to be their Singapore Champion.
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 watched wrestling ever since I was 4 years old and was a huge fan ever since. The year was 1957 and there was this wrestler named Lou Thesz (known for innovating moves like the powerbomb and the Lou Thesz Press) and he went against Rikidōzan (regarded as the father of Japanese Wrestling). Both these wrestlers were fighting for the pride of their respective countries, and I was instantly hooked! I met Lou Thesz during his glory days and he told me “boy, chase your dreams, do what you love, and damn it, eat as many humans as you can. If you can do that, you will become a champion”. To this day, I used the Lou Thesz Press as my signature move in tribute to my favourite wrestler.
Q. Who trained you?
I was trained by my Cleaver/knife. Her name is Cleavy. She taught me how to do all the fundamental wrestling techniques like how to bite my opponent, scratch my opponents face, the wrestling chop as well as the real chop, the wrist lock as well as the wrist lick, the superman punch and the double pump handle transition into an orange crush bomb. Oh, and she also taught me other stuff like how to bump, run the ropes and the lock-up.
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?
I would rate the hardness 10.5. I love the pain when I fall on the wrestling ring! It fills me up with so much joy! When I am feeling down, or when business at my butcher shop is not so good, I take a bump on the wrestling ring and my worries and troubles disappear! It feels almost as good as falling on top of my wife.
Q. How is it wrestling for a smaller crowd than an average wrestling event?
Wrestling in front of any amount of people is a complete thrill. When I wrestle/slaughter in front of big crowds, it is always a nice feeling because of the energy that they feed me when they are loud. When wrestling in front of smaller crowds, I get the chance to get close and personal with them, and it becomes more intimate. Whether big or small, I always make sure to sniff or lick the hand of everyone in the front row.
Q. Have you ever travelled to other countries to wrestle?
I have wrestled in Nepal, Thailand, the Philippines, and a section of the Bermuda Triangle.
Q. Where’s the weirdest place or what’s the strangest events you have wrestled at?
Weird and strange to me is considered normal to a man like me. Wrestling in Itahari in Nepal was exciting because I was wrestling in the rural parts of Nepal. It was very pleasant to provide high-quality violence and entertainment to those who never been exposed to such things before. The event was the first time I was put through a table, and it was an amazing experience! The pain that coursed through my body felt invigorating.
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 would like to wrestle at Wrestlemania because it is the pinnacle of this delicious sport. That being said, Wrestlemania is not the be-all and end-all for me whatsoever. I want to travel all over the world. I want to defend my Singapore Championship, against any wrestler, lamb, sheep, goat, chicken, bull, lion, tiger, elephant that wants to fight me. All I live for is the thrill of combat, flesh and blood.
Q. What’re your favourite matches of all times, if you could pick one or two?
I would have to pick my 6 man tag team match where I teamed up with an amazing Singaporean tag team called Onslaught as we wrestled big wrestling star Kenny Omega who team up with Japanese Legend CIMA and Shaolin Monk.
It was a very surreal situation because I never expected to get a chance at wrestling Kenny Omega. So the first chance I got in the match, I hit the Lou Thesz Press and I took a bite on his head!
After the match, he called me out on being fat, but I can never forget the moment when the arena chanted my name immediately after he said that. It was a humbling moment for me as a pro wrestler.
Q. What your finisher?
My finisher is the dreaded ‘Meat Grinder’. I taught myself how to do this move back to the farm where I slaughtered animals. There was one particular incident where a cow was being very resistant and would not want to cooperate with me. So I grabbed it around the neck, twisted its body, and drove its head into the ground. I then proceeded to bite its jugular vein out of its neck.
Q. To wrap things up is there anything that you would want to say to your fans, or anyone thinking about becoming a wrestler?
Be committed to this sport, train hard, focus on your goals, and always eat lots of meat like me!
