One thing led to another and one Saturday I went to check it out and next thing I know I’m in the ring and ready to learn the sport and what it is that they do because I loved it. I learned about it in March and by September I had a WWE tryout. Then, by April, I had a contract. Just a little over 12 months from being introduced to the sport and I had a contract. So, I had a lot to learn, but it was my goal to do so and here I am going after the d**n champion.
