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, DPW Heavyweight Champion, Carlos Zamora answers our questions.
What drew you into professional wrestling?
Who were your favourite wrestlers growing up and who are your favourites now?
Vampiro in WCW.
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?
I guess the biggest influence is probably [Kenny] Omega at this time. A dismissed trainee from WWE who made it in Japan. And he’s a funny guy as well.
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?
TJ Perkins in the Philippines (since we’re both half Filipinos), Kenny Omega, Vampiro and John Morrison.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Signed to a big company and living the dream. Not working a 9-5 job.
Where can we find you on social media?
And finally, why do you do what you do?
Because I’m talented and hard working. I’m just waiting for that big break.
Thank you to Carlos for answering our questions.
