Ezekiel Jackson Interview

Former WWE Superstar and Intercontinental Champion Ezekiel Jackson talked with Wrestling 101 earlier. Below are highlights of his interview:

On his favorite wrestler growing up:

"Ultimate Warrior was always one of my favourites growing up, I was a Hulk Hogan fan because he was a good guy but the intensity that Warrior brought was on a different level. I was also a big fan of all the muscular guys that I thought I would never be, likes of, Don Marco, The Barbarian, and Haku but I ended up being one of them. Those are the guys that I really emulated and just watched and enjoyed."

On working with Triple H:

"The first time we had a stare down it was post match with me and Triple H, who was WWE Champion at the time. I was like, here I am a month and a half into my time on the main roster and I’m starring down with Triple H, and I was like, ‘holy mother of god’, it was my dream becoming a reality. I was living my dream and getting to share the ring and be on TV with people that I had been watching for years, wanting to emulate and meet them, and there I was working with them!"

On his WWE release:

"I had surgery in January for a hernia that I had developed over the past year being home and lifting heavy. I received a letter saying that my contract was going to be ending on April 6th and that was it, till this day I still haven’t had a phone call from anybody from WWE, so it was bitter sweet."

"I got to attend and enjoy WrestleMania 30 with Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Stone Cold starting the show, I was a little disappointed with the streak ending. At the same time that was my last day with the company, I enjoyed my time there and I wish I could have another chance but I believe things happen for a reason and I’m ready for whatever is in store for me."
