For the readers who may not know who you are why not give a little background of who you are & how you got into being a fan of wrestling?
FS: Hello! I'm MD. Faizan Shaikh, The Editor of The Squared Circle Magazine. TSC is based in India & we have created a Global Product which is distributed to more than 800 Heads Worldwide Including majority in States & Canada. Being a Pro Wrestling Fan was just an excitement for me to know more & more about it. The Bitter Fact Is that it was not a passion at first when I started watching at 16. Now many People & specially teens in US are crazy about this sport but That's not the same situation in India. I was a Simple child Born & brought up in Slums and was not so into western sports but due to education purpose I met These 'Riche Richs' & I had nothing to converse with them because of different lifestyles. But then I saw that they always talked about WWE, so I started Watching & On the First day after watching it when I came to college I described The wrestlers like... Hahaha.... the Guy with a Beard( Daniel Bryan ).....this still makes me laugh badly....then Mistakenly I described Ambrose as a red head. Thats How Bad was My start watching it!
When you were growing up were you a wrestling fan or no and if not where you aware of it? If you were do you have a moment that made you become a fan or was it just not one aspect in particular?
FS: When I was 5. I was Residing In Sweree, My Neighbors were Foreigners from Gulf Countries. They Were Guys who left Their Country & Family To Earn Some Bucks Here. They Missed Their Children & That's Why Often took me & other Childrens to their house. They First Introduce Me To Pro Wrestling In the Year 2000 or 2001. I don't Recall if they Ever Saw WCW But I can Surely Say they Saw WWF. I was a Big fan Of The Rock at that Time but he was Like a Superhero & Not a Wrestlers To me. Then after I shifted from Sewree to Goregoan When I was 8 years I Stopped Watching it. And Never Heard Of it till meeting My college Friends. when I Started Pro Wrestling Again It was During Hell In a Cell 2013 And I searched Some Matches of the Rock which Included Rock vs Cena. After Years of Hiatus, I was a Rock bandwagon Again!
Did you ever look into breaking into the in-ring side of the business or do you think your skills are better off behind the camera?
FS: Every Wrestling Fan Dreams To Be a Wrestler. That's a known Fact! I also wanted to be an in ring performer. I think I got the skills & I'm not just talking I'm Damn Sure About it. The Fact Is I never had enough funds to finance that. I tried to go to CWE the Only Indian Wrestling Academy /school but......quited The Idea because of my family's financial condition. though we never had enough Finance with Us My Parents Never Gave up on My & My Sister's Studies . I'm a Bachelor of Management Study Student & A Seminar In my college gave Me motivation to start pursuing My dreams Early for Early gains. The Hip Hop Preacher , Eric Thomas's Words " Turn Your Passion Into Your Profits" is something I dedicated My life to & Here I am now, Living my dreams with my own magazine!
