What do you love about wrestling: I love that it's one-on-one and I can't blame other people for the mistakes that I make.

Most memorable moment in wrestling: The first match I ever won when I was four years old. I hadn't won a single match like all season and it came pretty close to the end and I ended up winning the match.

Most embarrassing moment in wrestling: When I give up bonus points, like pins and stuff like that.

Most difficult moment in wrestling: The mental aspect of it, especially after you lose. You beat yourself up. You try to bounce back from that.

Three people you can have dinner with, dead or alive: Jimi Hendrix, just because he's awesome and I would like to see how he is as a person; Mark Hamill, just to like figure out what was going through his mind making Star Wars; Steven Spielberg, I'd like to know what things he would change about his movies if he would change anything.

Guilty pleasure: Listening to Fleetwood Mac. I was just listening to different music and I found Fleetwood Mac.
