Trained: “MÄŠÙKÜ helped train me…but then he realized he can’t visually teach me so he sent me to Jeffersonville, IN to train with Grindhouse Pro Wrestling Academy under the names of Too Tuff Tony, Rudo Raul LaMotta, and Rudy Switchblade. I thought it was an actual Grindhouse where they killed people and ground their bones but then I quickly realized it was an actual training school, so they weirdly accepted me. ”
