“I’m going to give this a go. If I can figure out how to give it a go… I’m going to give it a go” – Jon Walker.
Jon Walker Reveals:
- The match at SummerSlam 1991 which made him fall in love with wrestling… and it wasn’t the Main Event which featured legends Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior!
- The moment he decided to take up wrestling while attending a WWE Live show… where a seemingly bored pair of Uso’s inspired him to step into the squared circle himself!
- Why he regretted his Jonny Narcissist character being a crowd-displeasing heel… and the reasons why a fan-favourite babyface is a much easier role to play!
- How being stood next to the promoter during a time of crucial decision making handed him his first match… on the same card as ex-AEW TNT champion Cody Rhodes!
- How he was selected by chance yet again as his current, masked Necrofago character… this time to face, and beat, former NXT UK wrestler Joseph Conners!
- The numerous challenges he faced when setting up his Slam Masters Wrestling promotion… such as not having a ring to perform in!
- Who is top of his “wish list” to appear on a future show… this former WWE Intercontinental champion is arguably the hottest wrestler on the indie circuit right now!
