At this point I knew of Tyson Dux via his reputation for about my entire wrestling career. He is a well respected veteran from Canada and even fought against Zack Sabre, Jr. in the opening round of WWE's Cruiserweight Classic. I believe this was the first time we got to have a match against one another and I felt like we just clicked. Hopefully one day we will get to face off again.

I had been lucky enough to travel to Canada almost as soon as I started wrestling thanks to Joker and Sabian (now BLK Jeez) taking me under their wings at CZW and inviting me on the road with them to places like UWA in the mid 2000's. It wasn't until 2015 that I was able to compete for SMASH wrestling in Toronto as a part of their Fourth Gunn stable with Chuck Taylor, Biff Busick, Johnny Gargano, and Tarik. They are always great to me there, fans and promotion alike, and would even allow me to bring trainees from the CZW Academy up to gain experience at their events.

If you're in an industry like pro wrestling I cannot stress how important it is for you to travel and learn from as many different people as possible. It's rewarding! And don't wait for someone to ask you, go and ask, and get it done yourself. You can read every book and study every piece of footage, there is just no substitution for experience.
