Christian Vind: What’s your backstory?
Dylan Bostic: I was born in Indianapolis and grew up in Shelbyville IN and was hooked on wrestling after the first time I saw it on TV when I was four or five years old. My mom met some local wrestlers when I was eight years old,and they gave her tickets for us to attend a local show. I started training when I was 12 years old. In June 2007, I had my first live professional match at 15 years old.
Christian Vind: I heard you tried out for the WWE! How did that go?
Dylan Bostic: It went absolutely amazing. I wrestled on WWE Smackdown in 2012. It just felt so amazing to get another opportunity with the WWE after all of these years. I promised 2012 wasn’t the end of me in WWE. It was the beginning. I’m hungrier than ever!
Christian Vind: What were some of your struggles as an entrepreneur, and as a wrestler? What are some things that you’ve done to overcome those obstacles?
Dylan Bostic: Being a pro wrestler you are your own brand and business. It’s been hard to get ahead financially in wrestling because there are only a few places to make good money in wrestling. I’ve used social media as a platform to make more money, and it has finally started to pay off.
Christian Vind: What does your theme song Champion mean to you? How has it made an impact on you personally and your career as a wrestler and entrepreneur?
Dylan Bostic: The song means so much to me because the lyrics explain my life. My entire life people have told me I couldn’t be a pro wrestler or ever step foot in the WWE and I’ve done everything people said I couldn’t do. The only thing left now is a successful run in the WWE!

Christian Vind: What are some things you would recommend a prospective wrestler who wants to turn pro do?
Dylan Bostic: Anyone who wants to be a pro wrestler needs to first become an athlete. If you aren’t attending a pro wrestling school right now, you need to be focused on gym and diet to prepare yourself. This isn’t easy!
