So I was heading home from work onto a pretty serious head on. Car Collision. Thousand Fifteen and so. Was it one of those career enders at first sort of thing it? It has sort of put me on the shelf about fourteen months iodine shattered my hip fractured my pelvis broke wrists broke a hand a knows Where they're a bunch of fun stuff and then even while in the hospital had a blood clot just prior to surgery blood clot, almost go into my long or or my heart or whatever it was. So the communist chauffeur in hostels about six weeks, recovery and all that on the shelf fourteen months and doctors explained that because of the surgery dot steel and ends in my APP and my wrist and my hands and. It's sad that you probably should not do anything physical because I got no cartilage left in my hip. So it's essentially bone on bone. So I wasn't sure how things are gonNA. Go after time and was just kind of taking by date and then to Rehab and all that fun stuff I started feeling quite good and and getting Jim and and feeling good doing all that stuff running and whatnot. So I decided to test the waters after about fourteen months and get some shows out now verte and Ever since then I've applied in the busiest, I ever have been with these tour staving off and then bustling at least one hundred times a year give or take go ask couple years. That's great. So it didn't affect you overall these still feeling good in the ring. Go feeling all right Other than getting a little late in gaining a couple pounds I'm still able to do all the stuff that you know was that all he's able to do essentially a pretty big guy hundred and sixty pounds. I'm still able to do backflips and all that fun stuff. So it hasn't really affected me in the rain just yet a couple of years down the road will be saying something a little different but so far so good. So I can complain. So as we start to wind down here, I mean like I said great concept and a really appreciate and respect the fact that you do this I wish I wish you were around.

On a bigger basis for both of you guys have you had WB tryouts have you worked in the states What's your overall aspirations? Do you want to continue to forge your own identity with CWA? Are you looking to try and get booked in another other places are a little bit of vote for myself. I I've been wrestling. Now will be seventeen years coming up next month and I've been very blessed I. Have I been doing work with? W. I actually did a segment with you on television couple years back with you Kevin O. Rawlins's security guard doing four-part stuff. I've done. Like four three years ago in Minneapolis, we did a full part in got knocked over by guys was nice you. You're great. Very nice. Actually, I actually told the story how like how good of an experience that was in the sense of just minimal and unimportant as our role was as an extra in as a security guard just learning psychology of war body needs to be for the cameras to catch your facial and things of that nature was a really good rewarding experience Just take away and bring back home and then put your pocket for another day. But I I've been very very like. Two thousand ten I'm used pretty regularly in the mid West move when they do extra work there I've done a dark nancy no prior to smackdown as well done a PC trial of I've been lucky enough to go to Japan a few times and do some work with ring of honor. So former I still stay like very motivated driven that. Want. You continue pushing forward and be successful as as a professional wrestler first and foremost But at the same time this thing taking off and then gained much traction as it is. It's got my attention as well and it's kind of you know they always say to have a backup plan I know they probably have a back or anonymously backup plan. But just being able to promote tours and provide for myself and my family. If I can get, you need to do that in the meantime pursuing you know things that are professional wrestler as well. Open up doors. I'm definitely happy doing that as well. How about you AJ Yeah.
