1. How did you get into professional wrestling and were there some favourite wrestlers when you grew up?
I got into wrestling just by going to a practice session I was asked to go to. I had no intent on being a wrestler. Some of my favorites growing up were The Great Muta, Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit and Jushin Thunder Lyger.
2. Can you remember your very first match? How did you feel that day?
My first match was a 4 way match against Ken Sweeney, Chief Tango and Monsta Mack. I felt fine that day because I was ready to fight.
3. I heard that you trained in an old church. What was that like?
It was pretty cool. I would wake up early on saturday mornings, ride the subway to the church and go practice. I was just happy to get a chance to be in the ring.
4. For those who don't know, explain what your name "Low-Ki" stands for!
The name is not a reference to the norse god of mischief. It was originally spelled as "Low Key" to refer to someone who is quiet or unknown and mysterious.
5. What were some of your impressions of NWA-TNA before you got there?
I didnīt have any. It was an opportunity on a level similar to the WWF at the time. I was in the opening match on the very first event.
6. Do you think you can be a contender for the NWA World Heavyweight Title?
I`m not afraid to fight, so the weight division doesnīt seem to be a problem to me.
7. What are your thoughts on XXX in NWA-TNA?
I think itīs a very solid crew. Iīm content being associated with Elix Skipper and Christopher Daniels on my team, who wouldnīt be?
8. The X-division in NWA-TNA is great but do you think they are giving the matches enough time?
The fact that tey are given a chance to wrestle is enough. Pro wrestling has been dominated by the heavyweights for a long time. Time should not be a factor to prove yourself.
9. There are a lot of championships in pro-wrestling, what makes the NWA-TNA X-championship so interesting, so unique?
It is a belt that represents a style, rather than a weight class.
10. Who came up with XXX? What do you think about your partners Elix Skipper and "Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels?
All 3 of us did. I think I have great athletes on my team and 2 of the best pro wrestlers in the U.S.
11. Do you like these tag team matches, e.g. with Daniels, Skipper, Xavier etc. or do you prefer single competition?
I really donīt care. I just love to fight, so either is suitable for me.
12. At present the S.E.X. angle reminds me to the nWo angle in WCW! Do you believe S.E.X. will go the same way the New World Order went?
Yes. Seems to follow the same path.
13. The end of nWo came when more and more people joined nWo. Also more and more people have been joining S.E.X.- do you believe, this will be the end of S.E.X.?
More than likely I believe so.
14. One man in NWA-TNA is criticized most: Vince Russo! What do you think of him and his way he writes angles?
I donīt know much about him. I just show up to fight, I donīt get involved in anything else.
15. You worked some matches for World Wrestling Entertainment, were there no plans to sign a contract with WWE?
Not that I know of. I was happy to get the opportunity to wrestle for them. They control the contract situations.
16. Please describe your experiences in WWE!
It was an incredible experience where I gained alot of confidence in my work an knowledge.
17. Recently you wrestled in the english promotion FWA (Frontier Wrestling Alliance), one of the best european promotions today. How was it?
It was a great experience. Aside from getting hurt, I had a blast there.
18. We heard you suffered an injury during your stint in FWA. How are you now?
Iīm OK. I just cannot train with my arm or wrestle for awhile. But I will be back stronger than before.
19. Is there a chance to see you in a promotion in Germany?
There is always a chance. I only need to be contacted by the right people.
20. Of all the promotions you worked with, is there one that stands out for you?
East Coast Wrestling Alliance, based out of Delaware, USA. It is what got me where I am today. It presents the Super 8 Tournament every year.
21. Is it hard to be active in Japan and in America at the same time? How hard is it to deal with jetlag etc. ?
Iīm stubborn. I push my body to do it. Some may not handle the travel or schedule, but it is what I love to do so I push myself to do it subconciously.
22. Do the Zero-One fans react differently to your matches? How would you compare your experience in Japan compared to wrestling in America?
I think they do. Wrestling is presented as a sport rather than entertainment so the fans hold wrestlers in different regard. I think it is a great experience. It helped me gain knowledge that I didnīt have and helped me get better as a wrestler.
23. Which Japanese wrestlers do you want to work with?
Iīm still waiting to work with Keiji Mutoh. He is on the top of the list.
24. Do you prefer X-Division or Ring of Honor matches?
They are the same, excluding the national television platform.
25. What do you as a cruiserweight think about the old school mentality which says that big wrestlers draw more money?
It all depends on how a person is presented in wrestling. Rey Mysterio jr. can probably draw more money than the Big Show.
26. What do you hope the future holds for Low Ki' and what is the next step for you in your wrestling career?
Iīm not sure other than I will get better and more precise with my wrestling. Time can only tell.
27. What wrestler that is currently working in the indies could become a superstar in the business? Tell us why!
I donīt follow too many people in the business that I donīt already know. The Amazing Red seems to be the person with superstar written all over him. He is exciting and great to just sit and watch. If he can maintain his health I think he will be able to surpass Rey Mysterio jr., who he is always compared to.
28. Have you ever wrestled in Germany, if so what did you like most and what didn't you like?
I have never wrestled in Germany. I would like to.
29. Is there anything you'd like to say to your german fans?
Thank you for the support, hope to be able to fight for you in the future.
