Fabian Aicher is a WWE NXT Tag Team Champion. He is a very strong and big man. He has a physique that is very popular in WWE. He is part of Imperium which is one of NXT’s top tag teams. He recently gave an interview to Alistair McGeorge of UK Metro.
He shared the moment when he knew that he wanted to become a professional wrestler. He was watching TV and during surfing the August 28, 2003 SmackDown episode came up. The episode featured The Undertaker defeating Brock Lesnar and Big Show in a Triple Threat.
He then became the #1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Title which was held by Kurt Angle at the time. Aichemer was about to turn 13 at that time. "I just came across wrestling by accident," Aichner revealed.
"I was just flipping through the channels and I saw the last five minutes of a SmackDown episode. I was just like, 'This is the coolest thing I've ever seen.' "Instantly, as soon as I saw the ring and all the people around it, these big guys – I think it was Undertaker against Brock Lesnar and Big Show in a Triple Threat Match.
I was like, 'This is the coolest thing I've ever seen!" I just knew instantly, that's what I want to do with my life." He then spoke about being trained by the legendary Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels.
"To me, it's unbelievable. I saw SmackDown for the first time when I was 13 years old, so all those people were in their prime," said Aichner, who started his career in Italy back in 2011. "You try to get better, you try to watch matches and see what they're doing, the little things in the ring.
And now obviously coming here, every week we're sitting down with Shawn Michaels and he's giving us feedback."
