Good day readers and wrestling fans, I have the interview that I said I was doing with Ohio's "Best kept secret," wrestling sensation Orlando Savage.
This is part one of the interview. I am writing it in two parts because it is kind of long and I want to make sure readers don't get bored.
Before I continue with this, I would like to thank Savage for agreeing to do this interview and to thank all of you for taking time to read this as well.
Mr. Savage thank you so much for letting me do this interview. Hope it brings you the attention and exposure you need to get noticed by the WWE or TNA.
ORLANDO: You are very welcome Chipper, glad to do it. I need the publicity, lol.
CHIPPER: Are you ready?
ORLANDO: Let's do it.
Q: What made you go into wrestling in your senior year?
A: Well to start things off, I got into wrestling when I was around the age of seven, when I saw an episode of WCW NITRO. I was hooked.
Q: Who inspired you?
A: Many people inspired me and are still inspiring me to become one of the best, such as my family and anyone who ever stepped foot into the ring trying to do something that not many people can do.
Q: What does your family think of you being in such an extreme sport?
A: My family knows this is what I am destined to do, to become a wrestling superstar.
Q: Who is your favorite all-time wrestler?
A: My favorite all-time wrestler—wow, that's really limiting things but, my all time favorite all-around wrestler would have to be the late great Eddie Guerrero. RIP Eddie.
Q: I agree with you about Eddie being great. There will never be anyone like him. Do you think you are good enough for the WWE?
A: Do I think I am good enough for the WWE? I know if I had the chance to show my skills, I could be become a member of one of their illustrious rosters.
Q: The Mystical Teardrop is your signature move. Is it a move that you invented?
A: The Mystical Teardrop is a move that I invented one day at a middle school meet, but was not legal in those ranks, far before it was used as the Lethal Combination in TNA's X Division.
Q: I see that on your profile on "Myspace" you have pictures of you and Bret Hart, and of you and Greg "The Hammer" Valentine. Did they have an impact on your career?
A: Bret Hart of course, ever since I saw him and Shawn Michaels in the Iron Man Match. I knew he was tremendous performer, and now that I have had a chance to meet and talk to the Hitman himself, his story impacted my life in such a powerful way. He is a tremendous person and I love him to death.
Well wrestling fans, readers, sportswriters, wrestling scouts, this is the end of the first part of my interview with "Ohio's Best Kept Secret," wrestling sensation Orlando Savage.
Mr. Savage, thank you for being so patient. I never interviewed anyone before so i'm a little nervous.
ORLANDO: No problem, Chipper. And call me Orlando. Don't be nervous, this is my first time having someone interview me, haha. Hope I made a good impression.
