I was never really a street kid or a tough guy. I used to dress like a teddy boy and identify with Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley, but I was just a suburban kid, imitating the rockers.

It took a lot of wrestling to stop doing that, even though I still fall into it when I get insecure and nervous.
