The following interview is part of an exclusive interview series courtesy of CWN Contributor Steven O’Neil. Steven has been a fan of Pro-Wrestling for the past 30+ years and on top of his love for the business, he has also lent his voice to several podcasts over the past year.
What do you do in your spare time when you aren’t wrestling, or training?
Making money and coming up with crazy wrestling ideas at my shoot job.
What is your favourite wrestling themed podcast or YouTube channel?
Just because I was literally just on it, I’ll put over my homie, The PD SkillZ Show.
What was the moment that made you decide to pursue wrestling as a career?
I’ve had way too many concussions from wrestling to remember why I got into this in the first place.
How do your friends/family feel about your wrestling?
Supportive, but don’t like me doing the dangerous stuff.
How do you balance family/relationships while pursuing your wrestling career?
I get the fiancé to work the door at my events lol.
What does a typical training day look like for you?
With my collection of injuries I have to be careful with lifting, luckily I lift a lot of heavy metal at the shoot job.
What does the diet of a pro-wrestler look like?
As of January 3rd, 2021, I changed my dietary habits to vegetarian and whole grains. No meat. No caffeine. No soda. Basically no fun.
What do you think is a common misconception about wrestling that people have?
That we don’t actually get hurt. Every single fall on our backs slowly degenerates our spines. That’s why I’ve loved learning about the Lucha Libre style and the roll and stagger bump.
If you had to wear a WARNING label, what would it say?
WARNING: Likes barbed wire, thumbtacks, cheese graters and long walks on the beach.
In an alternate universe where wrestling doesn’t exist – what are you doing instead?
