Neal served in the United States Navy from 1998 to 2002, and was on board USS Cole, when it was suicide bombed on October 12, 2000. Neal has a tattoo on his right forearm of the initials of his best friend, who was killed in the attack. Despite this, he made a successful transition into a professional wrestler. He debuted in TNA in 2009, and quickly became one of the most fastest rising stars in the company. I recently had a chance to spoke with him about his TNA departure, possible return, transition from the US Navy soldier to a pro wrestler, training in Team 3D´s wrestling academy, his relationship with Christina Von Eerie, and many more.
The Krupy : What are you doing since you left TNA?
Jesse Neal : Training at Team 3D academy and really busy working the indies.
The Krupy : Was it hard to make that transition from the US Navy soldier to a pro wrestler?
Jesse Neal : Not really. It helped it gave me the determination and motivation I needed to stick with it and the strength to keep going. I figured I survive a terrorist attack I could survive the wrestling biz.
