    "Awesome shoot. Tracy is a great interviewee. Completely honest about everything and he's a funny guy. I like how he talks about his beginnings in wrestling and still working a day job because for some reason nobody ever mentions that in their shoots. So it's cool to finally hear about someone making the transition from everyday life to pro wrestling
