1. DTF: In 1 sentence, how would you describe your wrestling style?
BB: I would describe my wrestling style as hard-hitting strikes with a mix of power and agility.
2. DTF: What wrestlers inspired you as a kid?
BB: Huge fan of Razor Ramon as a kid. Razor was cool, powerful and a total badass. I was such a Razor fan. I still remember being so disappointed that WWE did the “fake” razor gimmick. In my opinion, one of the worst ideas of all time.
3. DTF: What wrestlers inspire you today?
BB: Hmm that’s hard to answer, I guess I would say people that bet on themselves. But not a specific person.
4. DTF: Favorite wrestling figure(s)?
BB: If we are talking figure line, I would have to go with Hasbros. I grew up on those figures, and they will always be my favorite. If we are talking a specific figure Hasbro, Macho Man series 1 or Hasbro Razor Ramon Yellow Card.
5. DTF: What is your dream wrestling match?
BB: I often think Dream matches should stay dream matches because I feel like they don’t ever live up to the hype. That being said, HBK in his prime vs AJ Styles would be a lot of fun.
6. DTF: Is there anything that surprised you when you started wrestling?
BB: Everything surprised me when I started wrestling, I know the lack of money for lower level independent wrestling still shocks me, and the abundance of money for top tier talent shocks me as well.
7. DTF: What was it like to train with Harley Race?
BB: Training with Harley was easily the smartest decision I ever made. Harley called us his kids and he really meant it. The guys who were there long term, were always learning from Harley. Until the day he died I could call him for any reason and get advice, which I always did especially while trying to navigate the pro wrestling world!
