My biggest and most memorable match was against Joe Hendry, Jordan Devlin and Will Ospreay for the What Culture Pro Wrestling Heavyweight Championship.The match was a highlight reel from start to finish and the fans seemed to enjoy that. It was great to work with such talented professionals and I felt like I proved a point that I can work with the best.

I want people to know that they’re getting a good show if I’m on it. I can run with the ball if i’m given a shot.
