It is fair to say in this day and age that fast paced, high flying wrestlers are more popular than others within the wrestling business. But while their athleticism is impressive and I am a massive fan, I also love watch two Big Lads beat the crap out of each other. There are still lots of Big wrestlers in the business today that are just as athletic than most of the smaller wrestlers but for some reason they seem to not be as in demand as they should be. There is one wrestler who towers above most that he steps inside a ring with and over the last few years we have seen him develop in to a very entertaining performer, his name is Big J Johnson and we got a chance to find out more about him.

UWR: Are your friends and family supportive of your Pro Wrestling career ?
BIG J: Yes they are very supportive. Tell you the truth at first when I started training they had no idea I was training at first.
UWR: I’m sure like most wrestlers you remember your first match. Who was it against, did it go well and what do you remember most about it ?
BIG J: Yes I do. It was with a friend of mine that I started training with. At first it went well, I won it lol, but one thing I gave him a body check and I tripped over my own feet!! That was embarrassing.
UWR: What is the best match you have ever seen ?
BIG J: So many come to mind for me, picking a non WWE match it would have to be Zak and Roy Knight vs Special Edition at Epic (WAW)
UWR: Where can people see you wrestle next ?
BIG J: You will always see me at the fortnightly WAW academy shows in Norwich. Keep a look out on wawuk.com to find out where you can see me.
