Here’s to a busy year 7!
Would you ever write an autobiography and what would it be called?
Sent by Martha Comellas
A: Probably not. I actually turned down a book offer this year. I don’t like to talk about myself enough for that I think. Also, the best stories I can’t remember well enough to accurately recall, some stories aren’t mine to tell, plus I wouldn’t wanna throw anyone under the bus not in a position to defend themselves, inadvertently or not.
Which was your favorite scene to film in 12 Rounds 3: lockdown
Sent by Ashley Koch & Darren Connolly
A: The fight in the locker room. Also the roof fight with the horrible bomb special effect. All of the action stuff was fun, playin GI Joe and gettin paid. Dude, sign me up!
Do you have any hidden talents you’ve never shown on TV?
Sent by Phelan Newman & Stella
A: I’ll %!@# your world up at Jeopardy. I’ll spelling bee your ass under the table too.
Would you like to be a guest on Ghost Adventures (Zak Bagans has said he’d love to have you on the show) and where would you like to investigate?
Sent by Sarah Gonnella
A: No. %!@# ghosts.
If you could go back in time knowing what you know now and give yourself some advice, what would the advice be?
Sent by Amber Jackson & Lucy Davies
A: Learn to take advice… thing is I wouldn’t have taken that advice.
What was the Total Divas experience like?
Sent by Ashley
A: Actually really fun. I had no plans on participating at all, but once I saw how their operation works up close I was like.. this is so stupid and hilarious I have to get in on it, how can you not have fun with this ridiculousness?
What was it like meeting Vince McMahon and Triple H for the very first time?
Sent by Dylan Fulk
A: …I honestly don’t remember. What a S%!@#! answer. I apologize. You get a coupon for another question at a later date.
Whats the best advice you can give to someone just getting started in wrestling?
Sent by Lots of people!
A: Crawl, walk, run. Master the Guerrero rolls. Have fun. Do it for yourself, not anybody else.. Every day, cuz otherwise it wont be fun and you probably wont be making enough money to do something that’s not fun.
If tomorrow was your last day on earth, how would you spend it?
Sent by Jessica (sassy_icajess)
A: Hiking, fishing, having some sex, karaoke and submission wrestling. Logistically that is a difficult day to plan, luckily I could hire an expensive assistant or event planner for one day, cuz i’ll be dead the next.
How do you think things would have turned out if they’d had you turn on The Shield instead of Seth? Would you have preferred it?
Sent by Linda (SkyHighRollins)
A: …Nah, I can’t imagine it happening any other way now. I think it worked out exactly like it was supposed to.
If you could go back and relive any one moment, what would it be?
Sent by Jessi Lee
A: The cigarette I had after a terrified doctor recommended orange juice, after nearly bleeding to death in a tournament in Florida. I wrestled Sami Callihan 30 min later!
Site Note: For those wondering, the match was a Full Impact Pro tournament match in 2010, against Arik Cannon. You can view captures Here. Not for the faint hearted!
Would you like to open your own wrestling school or be a trainer at NXT one day?
Sent by Laurie (purple_sneakers)
A: If I had the time to do that I wouldn’t be wrestling, and when I’m out, I wanna be out… that being said something like that’s not out of the question.
Whats your favorite book and do you have any book recommendations?
Sent by Lyzette Austin & Nina Alman
A: “Of Mice and Men”. Favorite when I was a kid and I still like it. I’ve always been a big reader, I used to spend hours at the library all the way into my 20’s, here’s a tip for everyone: the library is %!@#in free. FREE! They just let you take stuff. Check it out, I’m tellin you. Reading is probably my No.1 hobby these days because its something you can do on the road at anytime, I get through 1 or 2 books a weeks usually. Currently I’m into the Jack Reacher series. Anything Gillian Flynn writes is good. “The Tao of Willie” by Willie Nelson is a big favorite of mine, everybody should read that.
If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?
Sent by Estefany Sanchez
A: Invisibility, or that Mystique s!@#.. cuz I like the idea of slipping out of sight forever. Also, because the most badass way to do good deeds is doing them anonymously.
What was the most physically draining match you’ve had in your career so far?
Sent by Oz
A: They’ve all run together for so long. People ask me often how my body is holding up, my standard reply is I’ve been sore, tired and hurt for 13 years. That’s not a specific answer but its the most accurate I’ve got.
If you could pick any artist to play you a theme song who would it be?
Sent by CraziMandy
A: The Deftones.

Favorite flavour blow pop?
Sent by Taylor Alyssa
If you could have anybody play you in a movie about your life who would it be?
Sent by Sheridan
A: Jeff Bridges. That answer is based mostly on the fact that I watched “Hell or high water” yesterday.
A big thankyou to everybody that sent in questions, apologies if we didn’t get to yours but we had to keep numbers down, he’s a busy guy and we tried to be varied! Huge thanks again to Dean also for taking time out of his schedule to do this.
