Welcome to Starter For 10. We ask professional wrestlers 10 questions so that you can find out a bit more about your favourite real life superheroes.
On this edition, former Copenhagen Championship Wrestling Heavyweight Champion Sebastian Day answers our questions.
What drew you into professional wrestling?
I think what got me intro professional wrestling was the way that the sport itself it’s so different compared to other sports, with way it’s presented on tv, to how wrestlers are able to play with fans feelings during promos, and matches, and with awesome the story’s that you just can’t get be seeing other sports like boxing or MMA. High flyers was also a big thing for me, seeing people my size doing the most insane things inside, and outside of the ring, that’s was what got me intro professional wrestling.
Who were your favourite wrestlers growing up and who are your favourites now?
When I began seeing wrestling in the beginning of 05, and my favourites was Rey Mysterio, Batista, and The Undertaker, as I just loved seeing Mysterio doing what I thought was the best high flying at that time, and Batista and The Undertaker was just awesome to see a young kid. Now is guys like Zack Gibson, James Drake, Zack Sabre Jr. and AJ Styles, simply because of the style they use, mostly the technical style which I really enjoy watching, as it’s shows that you don’t need to do big moves all the time too tell a great story in a match, and high flying again because it’s still amaze me how people are able the stuff they are able to do, and the team of Zack Gibson and James is probably the best tag team I have ever seen, and they are able to great singles matches.
What made you decide to start training to be a wrestler and where did you start?
Who are your biggest influences in professional wrestling, as a fan and as a wrestler?
Gotta say it’s guys like Jeff Hardy, CM Punk and Christopher Daniels, I don’t why but a lot of what I do in the ring as wrestler is based of they do, and as fan they showed me that you don’t need to be a big guy to make it in professional wrestling.
Who has been your favourite opponent(s) and do you have a favourite match?
What has been your career highlight(s) so far?
Who would be your dream opponent, past or present?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
I hope that I made it to the UK scene by that time on a regular basis, I also hope to be able to go to Japan and wrestle by that time.
Where can we find you on social media?
And finally, why do you do what you do?
I just love doing this, from the moment my music hits for my entrance, to be able to perform for maybe ten minutes in front a insane crowd is just the best feeling ever I think.
Thank you to Sebastian for answering our questions.
