- When and how did you get into Pro wrestling?

I was in January of 1999 I was driving to college from Arecibo to Mayaguez in Puerto Rico on a Sunday afternoon when I saw a wrestling ring near the road for a wrestling show in Isabela, I did a U turn and decided to stop, watch the show and then I asked if they trained wrestlers. They said yes and told me to come back on Tuesday. I did that, and so my training began. I used to travel twice a week from Mayaguez to Isabela to practice it was about an hour to 40 minute drive due to traffic.

 

- When you start in wrestling did you family and friends support your decission or were they rather sceptic?

My parents were not supportive. They did not like wrestling much, never approve of me doing it. My sister was ok and even attended one of the shows in my first year of wrestling. As for my friends some were big wrestling fans and I even introduce some to the business. My friend were impressed and surprised as they did not expected I was able made my goal happen.

 

- Can you still recall your first training sessions?

They were physically exhausting. We used to do three quarter rolls drill, then practice falls. I was not very athletic and so learning some of the basic falls was a bit frustrating. It took a while but I was able to finally do the falls. And the rest became a bit easier. Practice the included the universal basic. And then we will practice matches, and moves.

 

- And what was it like to wrestle in front of an live crowd for the first time?Were you nervous?

I was nervous, and scared did not know how the crowd would react. But once I got in the ring all that fear went away. I was working as a face so my adrenaline was high. I remember barely feeling any hit in the ring.

 

 

- Do you have a ‚dream opponent‘ you want to fight above all others?

I would love to wrestle Kelly Klein, she is an awesome wrestler and I think it will be a good match if it happens. .

 

- Do you have Pro Wrestling idols, maybe people who have influenced your in-ring style? Or Childhoodheroes?

I am a big fan of the Undertaker. But the ones that have influenced my style have been Ric Flair, William Regal, Bret Hart, Scott Hall, Kurt Angle, Doink the Clown and the character of KING from the video game series of TEKKEN. .

 

- Wrestling Fans loves funny or thrilling road stories. Do you have one for us you can share?

Most of the time I travel alone to shows. So I really can’t recall a funny story at this time.
