Your movie 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded is out now. Is it true you did all your own stunts?
Yes! Doing my own stunts was one of the coolest experiences of the film – as a kid, I wanted to be a stuntman. That always appealed to me. Now, fast-forward, I’m doing some of the most amazing stunts in my own movie! What guy doesn’t want to do 180s or burn-outs in a car?
How different is it from what you do for live WWE shows?
The big difference is that in WWE I get one take, whereas in the movie I could do as many takes as I needed for a given stunt.
