This interview is in conjunction with WrestleZone and Reality of Wrestling’s ROW Thursdays campaign.
We have included some of JJ’s comments transcribed below. (If you use WrestleZone’s transcriptions elsewhere please credit us and use the embedded player above)
On how he came to meet and catch the eye of Booker T before joining Reality of Wrestling:
JJ: I get to this seminar in Connecticut with Booker T and it was only $50. When I got there there weren’t people there outside, wrapped around the building or anything like that. It was literally nobody. I walked into an empty gym and I was like, “What in the world is going on here? Why is nobody here?” I didn’t know if the guy didn’t promote it well or what. I didn’t know. Nobody was there. It got me kind of mad.
Then, Booker T walked out and I was like, “Woah! Hall of Famer Booker T! $50! Here ya go!” I basically had a private five hour training session with Booker T for $50. We were there from like 11-4 and then he had to catch a flight. You pay that for a picture with him at a convention. The rest is history.
On his big announcement this Sunday at ROW’s show on FITE:
JJ: This has everything to do with myself, Reality of Wrestling and everyone who is watches the FITE app. Specifically, everyone who watches the FITE app. I’ve had an epiphany and a revelation. Again, you’ll see that, this Sunday.
