What’s your entrance music? Why did you choose it?
I go through a lot of entrance themes lol but the one I stuck with is All I Do Is Win by DJ Khaled. I chose it because it is a very short intro to get going, pop out the curtain and the beat just makes me so pumped up and gets the crowd active in it, in the song there’s a part where it goes “Everytime I step up in the building everybody’s hands go up” and the crowd loves it and partakes in it and proceeds to put there hands up in the air.

Tell us about your first and/or your most memorable match.
My most memorable match is against Matt Castle at ECPW. It was March 31st, 2017 in Keansburg, NJ and the crowd was on fire from start to finish. It was the biggest crowd I ever worked in front of (550) and they were LOUD!!

What do your friends and family think of you wrestling?
Here’s the funny thing my friends love it!! But all my life from grammar school, middle school, and high school they always laughed at me and made fun of me for still watching WWE and wanting to be a pro wrestler when I get older. When they found out I started wrestling they were in shock and were like blown away that I actually stuck with it and live my dream. My family on the other hand not so much like my mom she hates it she doesn’t want me wrestling at all. She doesn’t want to see me get hurt which is understandable but at the same time it hurts hearing from her she doesn’t want me doing it anymore and it’s not going to be your career but she still comes to my shows sometimes and cringes when I get slammed. Other than that my family loves it my dad loves it, aunts and uncles all love it seeing me live out my dream. They are proud of me because most people don’t get to live out their dreams but I did and I always talked about it growing up wrestling was all I talked about.

Who would you like to wrestle in the business? Why?
This is a good one there is so many people I would love to work in the business but if i had to choose one right now it would be Finn Balor for sure. Why? Because when I think about it him and I are similar in style we could be technical then go to some flyer stuff and switch it up, he’s a great worker and it would be an honor to work him some day.
