1. When did you decide to get into wrestling and how did you get started?
I always thought about being a
wrestler since I was young but I decided my sophomore
year of high school that I was going to be a pro
wrestler. I started doing research about how to become
a wrestler. I even bought a book about how to get
into wrestling. But I got in because one of my best
friends knew a promoter and he needed wrestlers. We
told him that we wanted to be wrestlers so he let us
start training. I was 17.
2. How was your time with Titan Sports?
I enjoy it
they let me live rich for a year. I have no complents
about Titan except for them firing me.
3. Your former partner from the Jung Dragons, Jamie Knoble, makes a great job in WWE. Do you still have contact to him?
I am really
proud of Jamie for what he is doing. He is my favorite to
watch in the WWE right now. But we haven't kept in
4. The WCW was accused several times of racism (Sonny Onoo, "Hard Work" Bobby Walker, Buff Bagwell), do you think you ever were discriminated against while in WCW? Have you ever been discriminated in your career?
I never felt like I
was discriminated in WCW or anywhere else.
5. You had been working for NWA-TNA. What are your feelings on that company?
I have no hard feelings
toward TNA. I hope the company succeed.
6. You didnīt sign a new contract with NWA-TNA - what were your reasons to do this?
There are few reasons why I didn't sign the contract. But the main reason was because I didn't
want TNA to own my wrestling name Jimmy Yang. I use
that name at a lot of other places. I did come close
to signing the contract until I ask Vince Russo if
I should sign and he told me noway. I thought Vince
Russo was Jarrett`s best friend. Then I was definitely
not going to sign this contract until I let my lawyer
look at it.
7. How do puroresu fans see your work? Do they respect you?
I feel like a movie star in Japan. I
never be this over with a crowd in my wrestling career. But there still puroresu fans that don't like me or
that what hear every once in while.
8. Please tell us something about All Japan!
All Japan is a really good company!
9. Do you have a good standing in All Japan?
I think I have a really good standing in All Japan. So good that if WWE wanted me back I would have think
10. What was your best match so far?
There a lot of matches that come to my mind. I can't single out just one.
11. Is it hard to be active in Japan and in America at the same time? How hard is it to deal with jetlag etc. ?
I haven't been
on a regular sleep pattern in a year. Because once I
get use to a sleep pattern I'm leaving the next day.
12. Do you prefer puroresu or american style?
I do the
same wrestling style in America that I do in puroresu. It works for me.
13. Do you think All Japan will merge with ZERO-ONE? Who of the ZERO-ONE roster do you want to wrestle?
Well actually Kaz and
I are wrestling Low Ki and somebody twice next week.
Once at the Zero One show and once at the All Japan
show. I don't think they will merge together but they
will work with each other. I would like to wrestle
there whole roster.

Make a million dollars.
