We recently had a chat with Shropshire Wrestling Alliance wrestler and trainer Joey Sanchez. Find them online at http://www.shropshirewrestlingalliance.bigcartel.com/
What first got you into wrestling?
I first got into wrestling when my dad turned on the TV and made us watch wrestling, Legion Of Doom were cutting a promo and i was hooked from there.
Who was your favourite wrestler as a kid?
My favourite wrestler as a kid (and still is) is Bret Hart, his entrance music I loved but I always wished I was the kid that got his glasses. Always a fan of his ring work and even when I perform today I still use the Hitman comeback. Just a brilliant character and an even better wrestler.
Who was the biggest influence on your career?
What has been the biggest achievement of your career so far?
Who has been your favourite opponent to work?
My favourite opponent is a guy called Jayme Future, amazing talent and someone not many people would of heard of! Also it was a massive privilege defending the Shropshire Wrestling Alliance Title against Doug Williams.
What are your favourite moves to perform?
What do you think of the current state of the British wrestling scene?
Who would be your dream opponent?
Who do you see as the next big thing in British wrestling?
There are a few different talents that are amazing Tyler Bate, Dan Moloney, Chris Ridgeway and Will Osperay! Some really amazing talents that don’t seem to have a bad match and they are all young dudes aswell!
Where do you see yourself in 12 months time?
Well at the moment I’m head trainer at the the Shropshire Wrestling Alliance Academy and I’m taking the next generation through their paces, proud of what we have accomplished so far, we are actually held our first show for these guys on December 13th at St George’s cricket club in Telford! That’s my main focus for now.
