Huskie Howard Interviews Former WWE Superstar Jimmy “Wang” Yang
Yang: I’m busy, but everything is good in my hood. Thanks for having me.
Huskie: How long have you been in the wrestling business, and how did you get your start?
Yang: I started training and had my first match in 1998. My friend knew a guy that had a local company in Atlanta called Good Ol’ Days Wrestling. He really liked my friend, and my friend told him how much we loved wrestling, so he invited us to come and train.
Huskie: What was it like working for the big promotions WWE/WCW/TNA?
Yang: It was great. I got paid to be a professional wrestler.
Huskie: What was it like getting to travel all over the world?
Yang: That is one of the best benefits of being a pro wrestler. I love seeing different countries and people.
Huskie: Of all the places you traveled to, where was your favorite place to wrestle?
Yang: My favorite place to wrestle is my hometown of Atlanta, GA.
Huskie: Who are your influences in wrestling?
Yang: Sting is my biggest influence in wrestling. He was my hero when I was growing up. He was the one that made me want to become a pro wrestlers.
Huskie: What is your favorite match that you have ever seen?
Yang: I have seen a lot of unbelievable matches. Undertaker’s matches at Wrestlemania were awesome, but Sting vs. Rick Rude at an old Clash of the Champions made me fall in love with wrestling.
Yang: My favorite match is my debut match for WCW, because that was my biggest goal in wrestling, to make it to WCW Saturday night, and I did it.
Huskie: What are your thoughts on wrestling today?
Yang: I like it most of the time.
Huskie: In your opinion is there anything that could make wrestling better?
Yang: I’m not sure what could make it better.
Huskie: Do you have any advice for those looking to get into the wrestling business?
Yang: Get real training from somebody that knows what it takes to make it.
Huskie: I hear you are getting ready to start up your own wrestling company. Tell us a little more about that.
Yang: I had a school/company a few years ago, and I had a great time doing it. When I had the school I was still in the WWE, so my schedule was crazy I was wrestling seven days a week. I had too much on my plate so I decided to close it down. I really enjoyed coaching and did plan on opening up again. I went to hang out with my friend Shark Boy a few weeks ago, and he was doing a wrestling camp and I helped him out a little bit and it reminded me how much I love coaching. I was approached by Christian Wrestling Association International and they asked me if I was interested in teaching again, and if I was, I could do it out of their building. Christian Wrestling Association International is a great little company and the people there are great. So I decided why not, let’s do it again.
Huskie: Who are some of the wrestlers that will be on your roster?
Yang: I want to use the best guys and girls in this area. Starting July 5th I’m having a King of Cincinnati tournament to find out who the best in this area is. I will also be bringing in WWE,WCW, TNA and ROH guys, and some legends. I have some big plan for PT Wrestling.
Huskie: Alright wrestling fans, that’s all the time we have for today. Be sure to keep up with Jimmy Yang and PT Wrestling via their official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/protrainingllc. Until next time, you’ve been Hanging with Huskie!
