Wingspan: How long did it take to make this decision?
Johnston: “It took me a while because my parents always wanted me to go into music, and I always knew I didn’t want to. I always knew I wanted to do wrestling, but it took me a while to talk to my parents about it and actually make the choice to choose wrestling over music.”
