“I’m in extreme pain all day long. I do maintenance on my body all day. I do my neck traction, I have a thing called the Iron Neck, where it trains your neck. I have anti-gravity machine rollers, I stretch, I do a lot of weight training. I work on my body a good 2-3 hours a day, I have to. I’m so banged up now.

“I sacrificed a lot of my body in professional wrestling and amateur wrestling. I have to blame both sports, not just one. I’m paying for it now, but I’m managing it. I had a painkiller problem, and I kicked that eight years ago. Not having painkillers anymore is really difficult, but I’m never going back to those, nor do I want to. I’m going to keep doing my body maintenance training, and doing what I’m doing right now.”
