Hello everyone I am Mike and Welcome Back to MarkOutWrestling.com
M: Today We have a Former MLW Jr. Heavyweight Champion, CSWF Tag
Team Champion, IWA Mid South Light Heavyweight Champion, CZW Jr.
Heavyweight Champion and NWA Virginia Jr. Impact Champion, the
master of the Hindu Press, Cal Cut Cut and Osaka Cutter, hailing from the Entertainment Capital of the World- Bollywood, India, Current TNA
Superstar, none other than ?The Original Playa from the Himalaya, Mr.
Sonjay! Thank you so much for your time, hope the introduction did you
SD: Perfect, thank you so much.
M: Sonjay, I remember not so long ago going to the OMNI in Newport
News, VA and watching you perform in their ballroom with chandelier and
all. Now you are big time in Total NonStop Action. How do you feel about
your relatively quick rise to the national spotlight?
SD: Jeez, you were there? Well, I feel amazing, it is the best
feeling in the world. I am totally living out my dream and I will continue to work as hard and harder than I did to get to where I am.
M: You have also traveled the Northeast Independent Scene i.e. Combat Zone Wrestling, Why do you think that region is such a hotbed for Independent Wrestling?
SD: I believe it's the fans, they are the best fans out there and
demand the best and really force us to be on top of our game and give
them the best show possible.
M: Now moving down the East Coast, you also went to work for MLW in
Florida. It looked to me that they were beginning to put you in the
position of top Jr. Heavyweight there. I believe that?s around the
time you were beginning to get noticed more and more as a up and
coming star. How did you like your time there?
SD: It was some really fun times, it was just about a year ago, but
it seems so much longer ago. I had a blast working for MLW and those
whole Florida days were such a great time in my career. Court Bauer was great to work for and I just wish that MLW could have stuck around.
M: Around that time period you got a shot with TNA on one of their
Wednesday Pay-Per-Views. How did you feel about coming to TNA and
being seen on a grander national scale?
SD: Well, I was really nervous as it was environment I was totally
not use to, but after the first match I had there, I totally got the feel of
things and felt really at home.
M: You have also competed in Japan as ?American Monkey? Sonjay Dutt for Zero One. Is working in Japan always been a goal and how did you like your time there?
SD: Japan was always a HUGE goal for me, so when I got to go over
there and especially working for ZERO ONE, it was another dream come
true. I truely will say that it was probably the best time I have ever had.
The culture, the country, the wrestling culture, everything there is
exactly my niche. I hope to return again soon.
M: Do you have any funny or interesting stories from on the road in
Japan or here in the US you can share?
SD: Well, there is one recent one from my first trip to Japan which
saw Steve Corino, Low Ki, Spanky, Jason the Legend, Jack Bull and I
tossing hundreds of water balloons off a tenth floor balcony on
unsuspecting Japanese men and women. We not only nailed civilians,
but we nailed Jun Kasai, Hidaka and got the cops called on us.
M: Now back to TNA, on August 18th you got probably the biggest
victory in your career by defeating Raven in a Hangman?s Horror Match.
You were actually thrown in that spot last minute due to Sabu being
injured. How did you feel about that win and how did you like working a
more Heavyweight style in comparison to the X-Division?
SD: It felt amazing, I really had a blast working Raven and it is
always a huge learning experience working with him. The match was
much different then my Jr. Heavyweight matches, but I liked it and Raven
taught me a lot.
M: Recently TNA has left Nashville, TN and moved camp to Orlando, FL. What do you the biggest difference is between the two cities and are you excited about the new move?
SD: I think it's the fans. Nashville has seen us week in and week
out for two years, while Orlando is just getting a taste of what we have. I
am really excited about the move and hope that it remains a positive one.
M: TNA also changed their Pay-Per-View format from a weekly to a more traditional monthly format, Do you like that decision?
