His Favorite Opponent: “My favorite opponent is actually my wife. I’ve wrestled him twice and I’m 0-2.
Their first match, which led to the terms: “The first time she came out with all these dirty dishes and said, ‘You know, when you married me, you gave me all these things and now you don’t even do the dishes. In fact, I have brought the dishes here to prove that you are not doing them.’
How people reacted to the matches: “We’ve done it twice and people usually say, ‘You look like you’re having the time of your life out there,’ and you’re saying all these things because it’s too bad, but you both know you’re having fun.”
