I obviously used to watch wrestling growing up, but it was World Of Sport not WWE. It helps when you have family in wrestling plus i worked with a fella who was a retired wrestler so thats how i got my foot in the door because it was very difficult 25 years ago just to get in the door.
My fave wrestler growing up was Rollerball Rocco. Just unbelievable to watch, doing mad stuff years before anyone.
It’s almost impossible to choose a favourite opponent , in fact i think it is impossible i’ll throw a few names in the hat Danny Collins, Mal Saunders, Marty Jones, Kid McCoy, Doc Dean, Mikey Whiplash and James Mason. I could go on and on it would be easier to ask the ones i didn’t like.
I dont have trainees as such, I go and do like guest spots at different schools. I see a few from the likes of 4FW and a couple in BWP but i wont upset anyone by naming names. I’ll tell you the ones that are shit at a later date.
The british wrestling scene at the moment is ok, not spectacular. There are some very good lads and girls out there doing great stuff. Its on the up and its going in the right direction. When all promoters work together and stop bitching about each other it would certainly help not hinder what some people are trying to achieve.
My greatest achievement so far is lasting 25 years, thats not too bad.
Dream opponent would be Curt Henning, I reckon it came close to happening in 2000 but never quite got there. I reckon he could have raised my game.
England i reckon although in India the crowds were insane. But England I have known some of the fans since they were kids and i find them very appreciative.
Again this is boring but in wrestling there has been no one major influence there has been many, some for etiquette, some for in ring skills some for professionalism. I try and take something from everyone.
I think 4FW would be nice to compete for. I like what they are doing down there, it would be nice to compete for every promotion before i retire that would be an accomplishment.
I just love it.
They can expect 100% in everything. Wrestling, action, entertainment the best bout I can have everytime. They’ll go home enjoying my bout.
