Inspirations: “My mother. She was a mail-order bride from the Philippines who has raised three children on her own. She’s the strongest person I know. Also, my pain is an inspiration. I’m motivated by my failures, short-comings, and especially my critics both in wrestling and in life. I don’t just want to prove them all wrong. But I want to prove myself right. I try to see every setback as a setup for a comeback, so if I have a bad match or don’t impress the right people….I work twice as hard in the ring and in the gym to prepare for the next opportunity.”

Aspirations: “I want to be one of those lucky few that earn a contract and actually make a decent living solely from professional wrestling. I want to graduate from college and find a good job. Most of all, I just want to make my family proud. They still try to believe in me, despite everyone else I know losing faith and writing me off as a failure. I want to be able to give back to my family in some way that truly says ” thank you” for all the years of giving they have done for me.”
