Nick Gage Explains How Going To Jail Turned Out To Be A Blessing In Disguise For Him

Nick Gage recently appeared as a guest on “Talk Is Jericho” with Chris Jericho for an in-depth interview covering his career.

During the appearance on the show, Gage spoke about being put in jail being a blessing in disguise, how his goal coming out of jail was to return to wrestling and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On how going to jail was a blessing in disguise: “I went for 4 ½ years, and then I caught a parole violation, so they threw me in there for 2 more years. I tell you what, it was a blessing in disguise. It got me to sit down, get my mind right, get my body right, and get my soul right. I could have used a little less than 7 years, but I think I needed that. I feel like someone made me go into that bank and do what I did because I needed to sit down and I needed to get my mind, body, and soul right, and that was the only way.”

On his goal being to return to wrestling once he got out of jail: “Once I figured out that I love this sh*t and that I wanted to go back to wrestling, yea, that was the goal…Everything I did in there was all for wrestling workout wise. I wanted to come out and be a beast. I wanted to put that deathmatch sh*t back on the map and I feel like I did.”
