YOU WANT TO GREET SOMEONE? OUR READERS OR YOUR FANS?
I'd like to say hello to all the hot, beautiful ladies out
because you know that Starbuck is a ladies man. Also I'd
like to say
hello to Bret "Hit Man" Hart, who is now living
in Italy. Bret has been
one of the biggest inspirations for me in my career.
what age did you start to practice WRESTLING?
I trained a bit of amateur wrestling when I lived in Thunder
Ontario, Canada back when I was about 8 years old. It only
under a year and I kind of lost interest. When I turned
19 Lance Storm
trained me at the Hart Brothers wrestling academy in Calgary,
Canada. Jason The Terrible (famous in Puerto Rico and Stampede
Wrestling) also trained me a bit.
YOU ILLUSTRATE YOUR FINISHER?
I call it Starbuck's Fabulous Spike Piledriver, or more
my "Attitude Adjustment". Once I get my opponent
weakened down enough, I
trap his head between my knees, lift him upside down and
drop him with
incredible force on his head, knocking him so silly that
even his kids
are going to born dizzy. Most wrestlers do not manage to
kick out of
that move and very few wrestlers know how to do it right.
I took my
finishing move from wrestling legend "Mr. Wonderful"

Feel Nearbyer Yourself Or In A Certain Sense . What you
Feel to Mostly
I think I have a lot of Bret Hart's characteristics. I have
Ric Flair's characteristics also. In terms of ring psychology
engineering a match I think have traits from both of those
wrestlers. I also have small bits of Mitsuhara Misawa and
Dan Kroffat in
me, maybe even Triple H and Shawn Michaels to a degree.
YOU FOLLOW OTHER SPORTS?
Wrestling is my only love in the sports world.
COME THE NAME STARBUCK?
It comes from the combination of "star", which
needs no explanation,
and "buck", which means stud in the english language.
Buck is a slang
term for stud, or a macho Cassanova type of guy. So that's

I would like to get a chance to become a star in Japan.
a lot of mystique and tradition in terms of pro wrestling.
Some of my
favorite wrestlers are Japanese. Kenji Mutoh, Mitsuhara
Hase, Jumbo Tsuruta, Kenta Kobashi, Jun Akiyama, etc. Of
course I'd like
to go back to North America to wrestle and also wreste all
world in places that I have not been before.
HOW MUCH TRAIN YOUR DAY?
I train 3 times a week in the gym with weights and twice
a week I
train pro wrestling. I eat between 4-5 meals a day, with
lots of fruits
and vegetables, protein and healthy fats. Very little bread
YOU ALWAYS TRY TO ARRIVE IN FORM TO A MATCH?
I take wrestling very seriously because I want to be the
best at what
I do. That means I also do my best to prepare for every
DO YOU FEEL SAY THE YOUNG PEOPLE TO UNDERTAKE YOUR SAME
You need discipline to make it in pro wrestling. You need
tolerance of pain, a strong heart and drive, humbleness
to learn and
hunger to achieve your goals and make it to the top. You
must pay a
price to make it, and you must be willing to pay the price.
YOU JUDGE YOUR DANGEROUS OR RISKY JOB?
Pro wrestling is a very risky job. It is very physical and
much from the athlete. But it is also very rewarding in
the end when you
set out to be the best that you can be.
THIS POINT IN YOUR CAREER IF YOU SHOULD MAKE AN ACCOUNT
AS YOU JUDGE
THESE YOUR YEARS FROM WRESTLER??
I have been in the wrestling business since 1992 when I
started as an
announcer. I have wrestled in the USA, Canada and in different
Europe. I still have not seen as many countries as I wish
to see so I am
still hungry to experience more as a pro wrestler. I want
to see the
world and be successful wherever I go. I have the hunger
to be the best.
YOU EVER THOUGHT THAT YOUR CAREER WAS ABOUT TO END?
There have been a couple of occasions where I thought that
injuries I suffered would put my wrestling career and future
jeopardy. 1n 1995 I suffered a bad fall right on my head
from the top
rope when my opponent did a huracanrana to me off the top
came down like a javelin, straight on my head and the crowd
was dead. That was a very scary incident. In 2003 when Norweigan
wrestler Erik Isaksen broke my left ankle in two places
I thought it
might spell the end of my career. But as I laid out for
over a year I
just got hungrier. I love pro wrestling with all my heart,
I have to do
we have Ended.... Thanks Thousand For Your Availability.
WANT TO MAKE A FINAL REGARD?
I have been a Finnish Wrestling Champion and now as the
Heavyweight Wrestling Champion I look forward to proving
showing the fans of Italy that Canadians are some of the
in the world! Christian Cage, Edge, Chris Benoit, my good
Jericho and Lance Storm and last but not least the great
Hart family are
all a testament to the fantastic athletes that Canada has
pro wrestling. I am proud to represent Canada here in Italy
around Europe and I will show all of the wrestling fans
Canada produces the best athletes in the world. Visit my
