The following are highlights of a new City Pages interview with :

On the state of Minnesota producing many quality pro wrestlers: “If you look at the guys who have come out of our state — my dad, , the , and the whole , really — we produce tough guys. We’ve got a good stock in Minnesota.”

On being a third-generation wrestler: “It’s always tough to live up to having a famous father and grandfather, but I’m not trying to be the next or Larry the Ax; I’m trying to be the first Joe Hennig. With a lot of third generation guys, their fathers are still around to give them advice. Unfortunately, my dad isn’t around anymore. I wish he was, and I still get good advice from my grandfather, but I think the fact that my dad isn’t around drives me even more to get out there and do it for myself.”
