Speak of his much later fights in real rings, it was an acquired taste for Young John as his father’s favorite activity was taking his sons to watch World Wrestling Federation Matches at Boston Garden.

Thereafter, he was transferred to a boarding school, Cushing Academy where he did not only developed skills in Baseball but was in search for a higher purpose that best suits his aggressive nature.
