So Glad for you to join us here CW, How About that for an introduction?
CW: Gotta say, that's one of the best intro's I've gotten in a long time. Someone's done their homework
M: CW, Not a lot of people know this but you were actually a 2-sport star and actually got drafted to play catcher for Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres. What made you decide that is not the road you wanted to take?
CW: Wrestling kinda played 2nd fiddle in my life. Never really thought I would end up being a wrestler but haven't looked back since I started. Once I got the word I was gonna be drafted as a catcher and about how much I was gonna get paid, my mom was dead set against it. She drilled into me to go get my education, that baseball would always be there. So I did that playing baseball at a college in Ohio. After being there 6 months I hyper extended my elbow trying to pick someone of first base from my knees. I always liked showing off my arm when I could cause I normally threw out runners without standing up. This was a big thing way before the huge Spanish invasion into baseball. So I came back home to rehab my arm and finished college in Kinston, NC. Never fully got back committed so I saw a friend of mine one weekend who was wrestling and he asked if I wanted to go with them to a show. I did and we got there early and they got me in the ring and starting showing me some things and it took off from there.
M: I understand that you went to training camp at the WCW's Power Plant. How was that experience and were there any other wrestlers we might know in that class?
CW: The tryout there was beyond brutal. Worst 3 days of my life. After making it through that it was great for a little while. I learned a lot from Seargant Buddy Lee Parker and Pez Whatley. In my class were Lash Leroux, Mike Sanders, Elix Skipper, Chuck Palumbo and a few other of the Natural Born Thrillaz.
M: After the Power Plant you got your big break with Extreme Championship Wrestling, Overall was it a good experience? Any Favorite Moments?
CW: Overall, yes. Some of the best days in my wrestling. Doing what you loved and being known for it. Some of my matches were my favorite moments including my "I Quit" match; the reaction I got from the fans afterwards was some thing I'll never forget and wars I had with Super Crazy. I'd say mostly thought traveling with my partners in crime Lou E. Dangerously, Jack Victory, Steve Corino, Francine and Tommy Dreamer.
M: Once ECW folded you went to Court Bauer's start up company Major League Wrestling and also became a charter member of the Extreme Horsemen. How did you enjoy your time there?
CW: I loved being at MLW. This time I wasn't the young boy on the block, We ran it. I didn't have to be that quiet mouse as I did in ECW cause I had my the name for myself and was one of the leaders in that locker room along with Corino and Simon Diamond
M: Following MLW you traveled across seas and competed / compete for Pro Wrestling Zero One as a singles competitor and a tag partner with Steve Corino. How is the whole Japan experience compare to the United States?
