Jay Lethal was recently interviewed by Mike and Dean from The Wrestling Mania. Here are some highlights from the interview.
Gabe Sapolsky: “There was a time when I was working for ROH, and TNA had to pull all their talent off an ROH show due to a storm and I was one of them. Gabe took me aside at the next show and told me that he wanted to use my spot for a homegrown talent.”
His all time favorite match: “Every crowd is different and people react differently to each match, I can remember my favorite match was Bret Hart vs. “Rowdy” Roddy Piper [at WrestleMania 8]. It still gives me goosebumps right now. I’m a bit fan of not just wrestling moves, but the emotion that it evokes.”
On The Paparazzi Idol: “That was without a doubt the most fun I’ve had in wrestling. I had got into ROH at an alarming rate and then obviously TNA, everyone wants to be The Rock or Stone Cold and I wanted to be taken seriously. The Paparazzi Idol was the first time I ever had fun in wrestling, and Kevin Nash is the funniest guy in wrestling.”
Working as a heel or face: “Being a babyface is much harder because people are more inclined to hate you, even when you have done nothing wrong, I love the challenge of being a babyface.”
