Quinn Ojinnaka, better known to ROH fans as Moose recently spoke with Yahoo Sports about why he decided to become a wrestler and more. You can check out the full interview here along with a few highlights below.
Leaving the NFL to become a wrestler:
“The first person I told that I was retiring from the NFL to become a pro wrestler was my ex-wife and her reaction was that she hated it and that I was being selfish for retiring at a young age. One of the biggest reasons why we split up was because I was leaving all this money on the table for something that was just a maybe.”
Differences between NFL and wrestling:
“Financially, it’s definitely an adjustment. In football you’re making hundreds of thousands of dollars weekly. In wrestling you’re making maybe $500 a week.”
Possibly joining WWE:
“I haven’t thought about what’s next yet. I love Ring of Honor and I’m the happiest that I’ve ever been in my life, hands down. Money doesn’t make you happy,” he says. “I’m way happier doing this than playing football. Football wasn’t happiness to me. That was a job. This isn’t a job. This is me doing something I love.”
