I will never go on tour, for my health and for the health of other people. I think it’s stupid. I go down to the gym once a week to do some cardio. That might sound crazy, but that’s the point. The point is to stay fit, and that’s the point for each dancer. And that’s not the point for a lot of people who, you know, just go out there and just like try to win it and it’s not the reason they go to school. I think there are some people out there who like to get a good head start on their career before they actually do anything and have a hard time keeping up. But if we do that then we’re going to do a better job. We don’t take it for granted that we can actually do it. But to see me in the ring and doing it, it’s a whole new level.
What does that mean to you as an opponent coming off of an injury?
I don’t think I could beat someone who had injured their hand. Even if they had done it already, it would be like, “Oh shit, we might have to fight him.” If we’re going to be training at the same time like I am with my kids, you know, we might have to make a choice. A lot of times in wrestling matches you can just go in there and beat them, but if they’re hurt then you’re forced to think, “What about this guy? How is he going to get through this? Did he have the same injuries last time, or do we miss it?” That stuff really happens. And they don’t have time to rest so once you’re in there you got to really go through with it. I definitely wouldn’t underestimate anybody, though, because no matter how you get hurt you can still beat them.
I was thinking, because you were injured and you’re a wrestling fan, why would you consider wrestling someone like Daniel Bryan?
It comes down to personality. I’m not an idiot, and I’ve been trained, I’m sure, by some of these guys in the wrestling world that I probably would have been able to do with, but you have to have that personality. My personality is really, really laid back. I don’t like to think about it or look at it and see all these guys who have this big personality, “Man, I’m going in there to get my arm broken”. I don’t think that’s really who
