Robbie E recently spoke with WhatCulture.com. Here are some highlights from the interview.
How he got his start in pro wrestling: Well of course when I was a young Robbie E. I knew I was destined to be a star in this world somehow and I assumed that it would be as a pro-wrestler, because I loved wrestling. So at the age of 16, while still in high school, I began training three times a week. I didn’t even have my driver’s licence yet; my parents had to drive me to a school that was about an hour from my house. I trained for six months, I had my first match and two months later my principle in high school was fist pumpin’ bro!
On his pro wrestling training: I trained with a small school in New Jersey called IWF, it’s actually closed down now, it was good training; guys like Steve Corino and Simon Diamond frequented there. I would really credit those two, mainly Simon Diamond with my training.
