“I’m doing great but I had a few health issues last year. I listened to my doctor and I’ve dropped about 40 pounds and am doing much better,” he told The Wrestling Inc Daily at the time. “Once in a while I’ll hit the ring with a 2×4. I joke that it works as good as it always has,” he said. “I still love doing the indies because those are the kids that really love wrestling. They have regular jobs but still love wrestling so much. They know the odds of making it are a million to one but it’s still great to go out and see those kids out there and be a part of their show.”
