"This is going to sound really corny, but my mother has had the greatest influence on my life. My mother is an unusual ad outstanding woman. First woman sports editor of a national newspaper. And hilariously funny. She's just truly one in a million. She's in her 90s and still phenomenal. I just moved back to Easton because I thought, 'My mother's still alive in her 90s; I want to be around her.' I always wanted to come back to Easton because it's where I grew up, and it's really cool for me to see all the exciting things going on in town."
"My brother is a filmmaker down in Florida. He's my mentor. He's a writer, film director, and he's worked in different kinds of movies. He's worked on casting in New York--he did one with Denzel Washington in New York--"American Gangsters," I think it was. He's older than me; he's 45. We separated for awhile. I haven't seen him for about eight years now. He's going to California now..."
"Wrestling saved me. When I was eighteen, I became homeless and then I went to live with my sister and at that point, my sister knew somebody who was, like, into backyard wrestling. I became big over there. There's basically actual fighting, but some of the moves are kind of fake because if they were real, they could actually kill you. It's basically all in the technique."
"My best memory is when my dad took me to the Baseball Hall of Fame. I don't remember that much about it, but I did end up getting a Derek Jeter rookie card out of it..."
Him: "I like showing care and loving my baby. It teaches you a lot, really. I mean, before, I was just running around partying and stuff, but now he's shown me to give back and stuff and to have a life. He makes me think wiser, gives me more choices."
Her: "Our relationship is better now."
Him: "It made us closer. We don't argue a lot anymore. We want the baby to have a better life. You see, we didn't have our fathers when we were growing up, and I just want to be a father to him."
