When they told me I’d never wrestle again, I worked for three years to come back. I love this.”
He spoke very fondly of his time in the indies and said that he loved it in spite of being mocked for it.
“There are so many people who do mock it, and they do so in a sense like, ‘Oh, he wrestled in bingo halls and flea markets,’. You know what? I loved it. That’s the thing that they will never understand. That’s the drive that got me to where I am.
Brian also spoke on his desire to wrestle all his life. Unlike other athletes who start planning for the next stage in their lives; Bryan has no plans to retire.
“There are people who say, ‘I only want to do this for three or four more years,’ or ‘I only want to do this until I’m 45,’” said Bryan. “No. I want to do this until I’m 70. Months before I die, I want to be doing a wrestling show. I won’t be able to do the stuff I do now, but I want to go out and do this thing I’ve been passionate about wrestling my entire life. I want to do that my whole life.”
