Best and worst things about the wrestling business:
“The best – Fan interactions, creative freedom, travel and friendship with people you wouldn’t normally associate yourself with.  The worst – politics, backstabbing and everything else.”
Indy wrestling today:
“I think Indy wrestling is become cool again. Non-WWE fans are checking out various promotions and sticking to them. There’s a cool underground scene slowly building. Indy scene could use more exposure.”
