  1. Joe, I really want to pursue my wrestling dream and I was wonder if you can train me one day so I can be in the WWE. A role model I would like to be like is Liv Morgan. Thank you so much.

  2. Joe,

    I loved hearing the back stories! I can’t imagine how you felt when your, ” Best Friends”, turned on you. I and so many others are greatful that you worked through all the bull shit and came out on top! Five years from now you will be doing a podcast on , ‘ How I stayed on top in the last five years”!
