You can watch the full interview with Kelly Clarkson above, its def worth a listen. And you can see our highlights below.
Bautista on why he got into and stuck with pro wrestling-
“My first try out with professional wrestling, I was told to get out, leave, you’ll never be a pro wrestler. I was heartbroken for a week then just..so spiteful. So I start pursuing it out of spite, because people told me I couldn’t do it.”
On a turning point in his life that gave him positivity-
“There was a time when I was closing on 30 and I was so broke one year that I couldn’t afford to buy my children Christmas presents. So I had to go and tuck my tail between my legs and go and ask the guy I was working for at the time, one of the club promoters, if I could borrow money to buy my kids Christmas presents.”
“And I was so embarrassed and so humiliated to have to do that, I just made that conscious effort that I’ll never do this again, I’ll never be put in this position again. I needed to provide for my children, I needed to start building a life for myself and stop living week to week…I was taking the easy way out and it was leading absolutely nowhere.”
