The Art of Wrestling interview

Interview

Ion is a guest on The Art of Wrestling to discuss TNA, becoming a wrestler and being on television.

Birth

Ion (Michael Paris) is born in Los Angeles, California. He becomes a fan of professional wrestling and electronic music at a young age.

My initial introduction to dance music came at the age of 11 from a Gap commercial. There was a song in the commercial and I thought it was amazing. Turns out it was “Busy Child” by the Crystal Method. I heard this electronic beat, and when I found out what it was, I went out and bought [1997 album] Vegas by the Crystal Method. [Intriguingly enough] it was one of the first albums I ever owned.
