X-Pac welcomes Marty the Moth to the show.
X-Pac asks Marty who inspired him to become a professional wrestler. Marty informs that he got into wrestling because of Goldberg, but then he saw Shawn Michaels wrestle. Michaels always looked like he was enjoying what he was doing in the ring so much, especially at the end of his career. This was very inspirational for him and made him really want to get into the ring.
Marty talks about his experience trying out as a competitor for Tough Enough. He informs that this was his first time meeting “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and that was pretty intimidating, but he had to get past that because he was in a competition. He points out that it seems like WWE’s goal is to make people quit that show for the sake of television, and you have to do everything to tell yourself to keep pushing through.
Marty mentions that when he was initially signed by Lucha Underground they cast him in the role of Mil Muertes. He thought he’d be able to play that role effectively, but he does admit that he’s more of a silly guy than a serious guy. He was then told that he’d be portray a magician character called “Magnificent Martin”, but that didn’t happen either.
He informs that he got a concussion early on during his tenure in Lucha Underground, and because they’re owned by MGM he wasn’t allowed to wrestle for three months due to insurance issues. For this reason, he wasn’t able to be in the majority of Season 1. He points out that he’s currently filming Season 4 of the show.
