Fallah Bahh began to like Yokozuna after he began wrestling.
With one look at Fallah Bahh, fans can see that he has been influenced by WWE Hall of Famer Yokozuna as his gear is reminiscent of the traditional mawashi. In an interview with Bill Apter, Fallah Bahh explained why Yokozuna was not his favorite wrestling while he was growing up but he found inspiration from his work when he began training.
"Getting into the business, (Yokozuna) was such a bad guy I didn't like him because he was doing his job," said Fallah Bahh. "You have to kind of the body size of what you have and learn from the legends before you...Studying people like Yokozuna, I fell in love with his work," he added.
As far as what Bahh wears in the ring and some other aspects, Bahh called it a "homage" to someone he reveres so much.
Bahh has been with Impact Wrestling for over a year and will be appearing on upcoming episodes. Fightful Wrestling has live coverage for Impact Wrestling each week and the promotion is discussed on the Fightful Weekender podcast at FightfulSelect.com.
