NXT 10-Count: Bull Dempsey
What exactly does the master of Bull-Fit hope to do with the new craze? Who would Bull Dempsey dream of competing against, and how does NXT’s lovable Superstar spend his time away from the ring? These questions and more were sent in by you, the WWE Universe. Bull Dempsey is on the clock. The 10-Count starts now!
WWE UNIVERSE: What do you hope to accomplish with the Bull-Fit movement?
BULL DEMPSEY: So many things! If I had to say one thing, it’d be “inspiration.” It's 2015, and the level of athlete in every walk of life has changed. It’s not just, “If you’re big and jacked, you’re good.” You’ve gotta be able to hang. I may not be built for show, but I’m built for go. I’m not going to be on the cover of “Muscle & Fitness” just yet, but I can motivate someone with the right genes to do it. I can inspire someone who may not fit society’s standard of an athlete to reach further than they ever thought they could. I can hang with the best in the industry, and I’ve been doing that since I was 17 years old. Now, I’m doing it in NXT. The sky is the limit for Bull-Fit.
WWE UNIVERSE: Is Bull-Fit suitable for vegetarians and/or the elderly?
DEMPSEY: Bull-Fit is suitable for anyone who has the drive to get better. As long as there is a want to improve and the need to prove people wrong. Age, weight and lifestyle don’t matter because it’s all about heart.
WWE UNIVERSE: Who would your dream opponent be?
WWE UNIVERSE: Why are you so darn cute?
DEMPSEY: Great genes or jeans, depending on your perspective …
WWE UNIVERSE: What’s the best part about training at the WWE Performance Center?
DEMPSEY: Everything! The facility, the coaches and the curriculum are top-notch. You can try to throw a flag on that answer, but if you’ve been here, you know it makes you better and brings you to a new level.
WWE UNIVERSE: What do you like to do when you are not wrestling?
DEMPSEY: I take care of my dog, Cooper, watch wrestling and call home to check in on my family.
WWE UNIVERSE: How do you prepare for your matches?
DEMPSEY: I have some songs I listen to so I can get into a certain mindset. I think about the people who helped me get to this point, and I think about the fans who I never want to let down.
WWE UNIVERSE: What has been your career highlight so far?
DEMPSEY: Wrestling at a sold-out Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. It was NXT’s biggest show to date, with my hometown cheering me on and my parents sitting front row and center. Who can ever say they did that? I got to live a dream that many would kill for.
WWE UNIVERSE: When are we going to get official Bull-Fit exercise equipment?
DEMPSEY: That’s a great question for WWE Shop!
WWE UNIVERSE: If you were stuck on an island with three things, what would they be and why?
DEMPSEY: A ship, a map and plenty of gasoline.
