You live in the USA but you born in Tokyo Japan,that's right?

Yes, My Father was in the USMC and he was stationed at a Marine Corps air station in Iwakuni, Japan with my Mother. She taught Japanese students how to read, write and speak proper English. And on September 29th 1983 was brought into this world at a hospital on Yokota Air Force Base in Fussa, Tokyo, Japan.

On May 3, 2004, 20 years later I returned to Japan to debut as the New strong Machine for New Japan Pro wrestling's Nexuss PPV.

Michael ,how do you come to the decision to be a Pro wrestler?

I grew up watching WWF and WCW I was totally into the characters, story lines and the Drama. So after I graduated high school I started looking for a proper wrestling school to train at. When I was 17 i started working a full-time job and paid my way through Dory Funks "Funkin Conservatory" in Ocala, Fl. after I started wrestling shows my own I noticed that there arent alot of guys my size that can do what i do (lets be honest, there aren't a lot of guys my size.. Period!). I became popular on the U.S and international wrestling scene and decided that this is what im gonna do for a very, very long time.

I saw on OWW.com that you wrestled on a huge show for New Japan - house was 60,000 Tokyo Dome show.How was this day for you?

NJPW Nexuss PPV at the Tokyo Dome May 3, 2004 6-Man Tag Match
Giant Machine, Super Strong Machine, & New Strong Machine VS Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Osamu Nishimura, & Shinya Makabe

New Strong Machine pinned Makabe (7.07)

This show was incredible i had never seen a wrestling show production of that magnitude. I had no idea how big this venue was until my crew and I walked out of the curtain for tag match, Our entrance music was so loud I could feet the stage tremor under my feet. And all I could see was thousands upon thousands of people. the match was something I definitely would never forget the news coverage of the show put the attendance in the 50,000 - 60,000 + range. The men I was fighting against were some of the best in the World, and I still beat them all within an inch of their lives.

I was the Machine that couldn't be stopped!

Dory was also your Trainer,how was it being trained by a Legend?

training with Dory was an awesome experience. it didn't take long for this "Monster in Training" to develop a solid foundation to build a successful career onto, everyday he had a new conditioning drill or a workout for me and the other students. I didn't know what to expect, it was very intense to say the least.

Since then Ive had a lot of opportunities to train with many other great talents and legends like: Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat, Dr Tom Pritchard, Norman Smiley, Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, Scott Hall, , Alex Pourteau, Chris Nelson and Vito Denucci of the New Heavenly Bodies just to name a few.

You also worked from 2007 - 2009 for the WWE and wrestle in FCW. You wrestle against Men like Ted DiBiase Jr or Kofi Kingston and many more. What was your highlight in this time?

the entire experience was one big highlight for me, i was working for WWE the largest Wrestling organization in the world, I had the perfect opportunity to work alongside of talent like Big Show, Kane, Undertaker, Randy Orton, Bautista, Sheamus, and of course John Cena

I had several great feuds throughout my time there, with opponents like Jack Swagger, Brodus Clay, Ted DiBiase Jr, Kofi Kingston, Michael Tarver, Manu (Afa Jr) and Doink the Clown.


When you get inside the Ring what is your Favorite Role,Heel or Face?And why?

I'm very good at both, But my favorite would Definitely be as a Heel. I like to make my own rules if you catch my drift.

On your Facebookside says you speak a little bit german? Can you wrote some in German?

Für einen Kammerdiener gibt es keinen Held. lol

When you look in the future is there anything you want to do in wrestling or a match you are dreaming for?

oh yeah, there's a lot of things on my professional agenda for the future, Ive been doing this for almost a decade of my life. that takes serious dedication. Ive seen and done more things than most people would experience in 10 lifetimes... Ive already had a taste of the Big Time, and im still hungry for more. Now its only a matter of time before im on top of this business, Where I Belong!

I would have to say a match with The Undertaker would have to be on the top of my list. Take is the best Big Man in the world. He would be the true test of my skill, talent and endurance. Who would come out on top? well, there's only one way to find out

And when you look at your time in Wrestling what was your personal highlight inside the ring?

June 16 2007, Barb-Wire Cage match against Savio Vega in Bayamon Puerto Rico.
With hundreds of feet of barb wire wrapped around the top a 12ft high cage. This match environment was designed to do nothing more than inflict massive amounts of pain onto whomever is brave enough to enter, there was no escape. Once the cage door was shut, IT WAS ON! . We took each other to hell and back 25+ minutes, after the massacre, I had to get stitches in my forehead and back. Savio had to be rushed to the hospital due to blood loss. head, neck and back trauma. On this day my endurance and survival instincts were put to the ultimate test. Sadly I didn't win this match, but in that particular situation, its not about winning.... ITS ABOUT SURVIVING

And what will be your worst Nightmare inside the ring?

Suffering a career ending injury would definitely be my worst nightmare. I think you would get the same answer from just about anyone in this business.

Where do you wrestle now?

I work some independent shows in the U.S here and there.
Pro-Wrestling Fusion, Florida
Wrestling For a Cause, Florida http://www.wrestlingforacause.org or,

When a promotion wants to book you where can they contact you?

They can contact me via E-mail at: the7ftgiant@yahoo.com

And what do the 7Ft men behind the Wrestler when you not stands in the ring?

I keep it pretty basic, I work out 5-6 days a week sometimes twice a day.. I like to mix it up with Weights, Cardio and MMA exercises. I also train in kickboxing and jiu-jitsu several times a week.

I also like to cook (a lot), I eat 5 to 7 times a day. when im at home im always in the kitchen making some Muscle Food, to maintain 318lbs that's a lot of food. you gotta eat big to get big.


At the last something to say to your fans ?

Thank you for the interview. Very interesting.
It`s a little bit sad that he didn`t get into a Main Roster of WWE but maybe there will be a chance to watch him live in Germany in the future.
