How did you first get interested and associated with backyard wrestling?

well i have been watching pro wrestling for many of years and one day my friend came up with an idea of making an backyard wrestling federation and we liked the idea and so we started the fed and i got into backyard wrestling from there.

Do you feel backyard wrestling has to be hardcore, or have plenty of high-risk spots to be entertaining? and why

actually i think it has to be both. i think it has to be hardcore since all the wrestlers and fans like it. also there has to be high-risk spots for the enjoyment of the fans.

What do your parents and family think of you backyard wrestling?

well my parents don't really like me backyard wrestling because they think i will get really serously injured, i'm not saying that can't happen, i'm just saying they go a little bit overboard. most of my family doesn't know that i backyard wrestle. my brothers do, even one of them does wrestle in our federation. mostly the rest has no clue i backyard wrestle

Describe the gimmick you use:

i'm mostly a tough gangster. my tag partner home-skillut and i are mostly the gangsters of the xwf. we mostly do anything we want and can pull off any move we want. that's why are tag team name is called the suicidal pcykoz!

What do you feel is the three most important parts in making a backyard wrestling match work?

for one all wrestler must be into the match, they cannot be slacking off in the match. i mean who wants to see a match where they both barely do anything and just sit there since there not really into it. the second one is that you must make the match exciting. for example you can't just be doing scoop slams and arm drags you need to get created like think of your own moves and don't keep on doing the same moves, you need to expand your moves. also you can think of new types of matches that always keeps the fans off their seat! the third would be all wrestlers must be trained. you can't really be in a match if you don't really know what you are doing, so all the wrestlers must be trained.

Why has backyard wrestling became so popular?

Probably since a lot of people can't really see the wwf. So they go and see backyard wrestling instead. backyard wrestling is just as good as pro wrestling as sometimes it's even better. also the tapes of best of backyard wrestling volumes 1-4 have gave a lot of federation and backyard wrestling itself a big push!!!

In your opinion, what will happen to backyard wrestling in the next few years?

Probably a lot of backyard wrestling federation will be on tv and even have their own show! also it will probably one of people's favorite thing to do or watch! Also i think that maybe some federations might even have thier own payperview where people can order to watch them, ya never know!
