Never miss a local story.
He also opened up about how he started professional wrestling.
“Wrestling has been my thing ever since I can remember,” he said. “I grew up watching WWE. I always wanted to figure how I would be able to get in it, so I started to wrestle in high school [in Orlando] and college in Ohio. I tried to figure out how to get into it. I found out Ring of Honor wrestler Jay Lethal was running a school [near] where I grew up [Clearwater], and I took it from there.”
He also talked about training with the Ring of Honor star who is also an Impact Wrestling alum.
“He is a laid back person. He is very knowledgeable. He knows the business. He knows what he is doing. He is always there. He lives down the street too. He is always in the ring. Whenever we want to roll around he’s there. It’s a great experience.”
Snoop said the only sport that would get him close to professional wrestling was joining the amateur wrestling team in high school.
“There was no pro wrestling,” he said. “The closest thing to do is do amateur wrestling. I had to start there.”
