Former WWE Superstar Zach Gowen recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV. You can see highlights below, and the full interview above!
He wants to work in a backstage role for Impact Wrestling:
"I kinda want to work for Impact Wrestling in a backstage role. I'd love to do that because they're in Canada so it's not too far away, I wouldn't have to relocate and I'm friends with a lot of talent there. I watch their shows and I can't watch it as a fan, I can't sit back and enjoy shows as a fan, I think those days are gone. I'm sitting there critiquing over and over again. My mind is constantly going in terms of the direction of the presentation. So I see Impact and there is so much great young talent there and if I could offer some of my experience or guidance that I could improve on the product you see in front of you."
He credits Vince McMahon with saving his life after he paid for two prosthetic legs and also his drug rehab:
"I want to tell my truth and my story and it's 'Thank you Vince'. He gave a kid who was on his deathbed who was losing his leg to cancer, 10 years later I'm in the ring with Hulk Hogan and living out my childhood fantasy and inspiring others. He also gave me legs to walk on and 10 years after that, he's saving my life and now I get to be a 36-year old father of two and now I can affect other people's lives with what I do in all of my work whether it's speaking, yoga, wrestling or whatever it is."
