JM: How did you get your start in professional Wrestling?
AS: Well I basically trained myself and with the help of other friends who were in the business before me. I studied training videos, training books, all types of wrestling videos and practiced a lot by myself and some friends in the business. My first jobs in the business were working behind the scenes at an AWA show at the Delaware State Fair 2002 then an ECWA show at the Dover Air Force Base in 2004.
JM: Have you ever wanted to be a pro wrestler or was being a manager your first choice?
AS: Yes, Iíve wrestled some but not a whole lot, being a manager and being behind the scenes is more my style.
JM: What are some of your greatest highlights in professional wrestling?
AS: Working with various wrestlers such as, Jimmy Snuka, Lou Albano, King Kong Bundy, Axl Rotten, Bushwacker Luke, Koko B. Ware, Greg Valentine and many more. It is surreal to be around them after watching them for so many years on TV.
JM: Has there ever been a question if you would be in the WWE or TNA in your future?
AS: Yes I would. If I was called to go to either WWE or TNA, I would be there. I believe it would be a great opportunity to advance in the business.
JM: What do you think makes a good manager as it seems to be a dying art?
AS: Good chemistry between the manager and his wrestlers, either making the crowd love you or hate you and having a great appearance.
