During an interview with WINCLY, Josh Alexander discussed how grateful he is for the second chance he’s been given through wrestling. Here’s what he had to say:
Destiny gave me an opportunity that no one else would give me. I’ve wrestled for a lot of indies in North America over the last 14 years, and when I came back from my neck injury, no one was giving me the opportunity to prove that I’m one of the best wrestlers in the world. Destiny gave me a platform to show that and they put me in month-in and month-out with some of the best indie wrestlers across the world.
Before I hurt my neck I had a lot of success and it was based on my natural talent; it wasn’t my work ethic to be honest. I always worked hard for the wrestling portion, but everything else, not so much. So when I hurt my neck and was told I would never wrestle again – it was just a DDT that went wrong – but I had thoughts of just thinking about all of the regrets I had. Honestly, I never gave it 100 percent to make it as a pro wrestler and do what I said was my dream job.
So, when I got that second chance and came back, I think it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I think my work ethic is unmatched now. I’m in the gym, dieting and working tirelessly at pro wrestling. I was given a second chance and it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
