1. When did you first decide that you wanted to become a wrestler?
Around the age of 3 is when I got exposed, one of my first memories was watching wrestling with my father. After that I grew up watching NJPW on Eurosport and I was sold and by the time I was 8 I kept telling my mother I wanted to be a wrestler.
2. Where did you go to learn your craft?
England, Germany and my own country.
3. Who in wrestling inspired you to make it?
Inspiring is the right word, I hate the word idolizing, it taints your judgement towards achieving a goal. I was, and still to this day am greatly inspired by guys like Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, Doug Williams, Tajiri, Hayabusa, Robbie Brookside and Chris Benoit
4. Would you say you model yourself against anybody?
5. Who have you enjoyed working with the most so far?
That’s a big list, from the top of my head, Zack Sabre Jr, Dave Mastiff, Solomon Crowe, Antonio Cesaro, Mikey Whiplash, Daisuke Sekimoto Davey Richards, The Bucky Boys, Shinobu, Yoshihito Sasaki, Ricochet, Jay Skillet, John Klinger, Axel Tisscher, Big Van Walter and Michael Dante.
6. Who would you love to work with in the future?
I think me vs. Devitt should have happened by now.
7. Which promotions have you enjoyed working for?
I have never encountered a promotion I hated working for, honestly.
8. Which promotion do you look forward to working for in the future?
ICW holds a special place in my heart, returning to Big Japan later this year and Progress and Southside Wrestling.
9. Are you familiar at all with the UK scene and if so any wrestlers in particular?
UK is a hotbed for talent, there are so many guys out there that are downright phenomenal. El Ligero, Martin Kirby, The Predators, Mikey Whiplash, Ross Jones, The London Riots, Dave Mastiff, The Bucky Boys, Kris Travis, Jimmy Havoc to name a few. The UK is the place to be right now.
10. What countries has wrestling allowed you to visit so far?
