Jay Lethal Talks About His Wrestling Bucket List, Ric Flair, Getting To Wrestle At The Tokyo Dome

Jay Lethal was recently interviewed by Whatculture, where spoke about wrestling in Japan, as well as his wrestling bucket list.

In speaking about Japan, Lethal was asked about what it was like to compete at the Tokyo Dome in January for Wrestle Kingdom 10.

"That's one of those things you get to check off your bucket list. 45,000 people. The history in that building. Mike Tyson fought in that building. And I won my match, definitely a highlight of my life," Lethal said. When asked about the nasty guard rail spot he took, he said "I hate to toot my own horn, but I'm a tough cookie, it looked a lot worse than it hurt."

When asked to elaborate on his wrestling bucket list, Lethal mentioned that he's already had an opportunity to check plenty of things off of it.

"I got to cross off Ric Flair, beating him on PPV. Hanging out with Hulk Hogan. Beating Kurt Angle on TNA PPV. Hanging out with Kevin Nash. I didn't set them, just when the opportunity presented itself, it's like 'I think that was on my bucket list!' Now I'm afraid to put something on it to try to check it off because I might jinx myself," Lethal said.

Lethal, who once impersonated Flair on television, would defeat 'The Nature Boy' with his own signature Figure Four leglock. Lethal told the interviewer that it was Ric Flair's call for that finish to happen.

"That was Ric Flair's idea. That was the coolest thing ever. I know I like to talk bad about TNA, but they gave me one of the greatest moments in my life getting to wrestle Ric Flair," said Lethal.
