Will you ever go to the WWE and if not, why not? (from Brad Nixon, Kent)
How did you enjoy your time in TNA? (from Brad Nixon, Kent)
They have some of the best amazing talent in the world, I would not fit in there now, the style is so different than what I want to do, I have my own way now, and I like to brawl, and just be independent. Old punk rocker you know… ”
What have you been doing with yourself since your stint in TNA? (from multiple)
I am very very committed to Italy and being a big part of their roster. It is everything to me to work with people who have a goal, a direction, and patience and support you in all that you do. That is what’s happening in Italy now, it is amazing, laid back but at the same time, very intense, very professional, controlled chaos, and I love that. ”
Do you watch much wrestling when you’re not wrestling yourself? If so, do you follow any particular promotions, wrestlers, styles, and territories? (from Aaron, London)
Have you watched much British wrestling? If so, what and what did you like, what didn’t you like? (from Aaron, London)
Which Brits have you wrestled in the past? Are there any you want to grapple with? (from Aaron, London)
Who are you most proud of wrestling with? (from Joe, Orpington)
Just to be in the business makes me proud, I am just a guy who was a fan and busted my ass to get where I am, but I am nothing special, just another guy…so to be proud sounds arrogant to me, I am more thankful than anything. ”
In one of your shoot interviews you slagged off internet fans in Britain whining on a message board. Why was that? (from Aaron, London)
I did not mean to offend any fans, but the majority of the people who attack you on the internet are f***ing idiots anyway have a life and I try to do the best I can, I don’t give a f*** at all what people say or think about me. I am a good person and a hard worker, and I just try to do my best and respect the fans. I am the first to admit I am far from perfect and make mistakes and when I do, I deserve what I get, like I said if you like my work, I am so grateful, if I have offended anyone, with all my heart, I am sorry, if you are attacking me as a person, or just saying shit because you are a loser and have no life and are frustrated and hide behind the internet, then go f*** your self, jump off a building and f***ing die! Ok, maybe don’t do that, but shit, relax! I’m just a guy, I love what I do, I make mistakes, I don’t want t to make friends, I just want to give you the best I got and thank you for supporting me. To the people who do, I love you all; to the people who hate me and bitch because that’s all they know who to do, well shit bro life’s too short. ”
Are you wrestling regularly in Europe now? Will you be wrestling in England more in the future? (from Sarah, Orpington)
