Dustin “No Legs” Thomas made quite the mark at “Joey Janela’s Spring Break” during Wrestlemania weekend. As his name implies, he is a wrestler without legs. He recently sat down with WINCLY to discuss how he was introduced to Joey Janela, his excitement to wrestle in the “Double or Nothing” casino battle royal and whether he ever envisions himself wrestling in the WWE. Here are the highlights:
On How He’s Handling His Newfound Notoriety:
The best I can. I’ve been really busy trying to answer people who book shows and stuff. It’s been great, I can only appreciate the love I get from it.
On Joey Janela:
He changed my life. He put me on that show and I don’t think I was truly prepared for the response I got. But he’s been nothing but helpful and great.
On How He Was Put In Touch With AEW:
Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks [reached out] on Twitter. That was great as they saw my highlights on Twitter.
On Being Happy To See AEW Come Around:
It’s great. I love doing this and I would love to continue doing it. I’ve got plenty of shows lined up and AEW is going to be great, I think. I hope they have a successful run because the more companies, the more entertainers and wrestlers can get shown worldwide.
On If He’s Spoken With Any Other Major Promotions:
No, none of them as of yet. I’m gonna be on GCW tomorrow, ECPW on Sunday and there will be more as we go on. It’s a lot of bookings so I’ll be everywhere.
On Whether WWE Is The Main Goal:
Of course it would be great. That’s the pinnacle and I wouldn’t mind being there. But that’s not really the end goal for me, the end goal is to just show people that they can do whatever they want. Just inspire people.
On Whether He’s Inspired By Other Wrestlers With Missing Limbs:
I wouldn’t say inspirations as much. Of course, they are inspirational people, but I don’t remember watching either one too much. But I haven’t contacted either one of them as of yet.
Something I’ve always learned is that you can’t be afraid to say no. It’s great that he made it and I don’t have a problem with any of that. But it was never something where it was I wanted to do just that.
