In fact, it seems only appropriate that Parker turned his attention toward Breeze, considering his own lifestyle focuses on the much simpler aspects of life.

“I call myself the Moonchild because I live by the ‘I.L.U. philosophy’: Integrity, Love and Unity. I stand up for what I believe in, I love life and I want to bring people together,” Parker explained. “I don’t need a lot of money.  I shop at thrift stores, ride my bicycle whenever I can and love eating grass fed/farm raised foods.” 

True to form, Parker admitted to consuming a fresh, 6-ounce filet of wild Alaskan salmon, organic asparagus and a sweet potato prior to sitting down with WWE.com. The meal exemplifies Parker’s commitment toward healthy living outside the ring while striving for success on NXT. 

“This may sound corny, but Monday Night Raw actually saved my life. When I decided this was what I wanted to do, watching Raw every Monday gave me something to look forward to,” Parker said.

“WWE gave me a purpose, especially when I felt I had nothing positive going on in my life. Not only do I get to live my dream, I get to be myself. It’s the best of both worlds.”

Today, Parker has a more defined set of goals, from being a social activist for WWE to even one day joining the Peace Corps. Achieving the pinnacle of success on NXT/WWE may open the door to not just achieve his dreams, but to also make an everlasting difference.  

“When I make it to the top of the mountain, I’m going to stand up loud and proud and spread my message: Change somebody’s life for the better, value those who have been undervalued, be the change that you want to see in the world and most of all,be yourself.”
