Nick Dinsmore - Eugene

KDLT.com recently spoke with former WWE Superstar Nick Dinsmore (aka Eugene). Dinsmore was promoting his upcoming show and match with Jonathan Coachman this week to benefit the St. Luke’s Heart Institute. Below are some highlights.

Dinsmore on his segment with The Rock: “The Rock’s music hit and they say he’s the most electrifying man in sports entertainment and we were in this, it was just a magic moment. And the thing was, that’s what made me a star. That’s what took Eugene to the next level. The Rock came out and said ‘Eugene and the Rock are friends’ the Rock didn’t know me. He didn’t have to do that.”

Dinsmore on starting Midwest All Pro Wrestling in Sioux Falls: “There were some in Omaha, some in Minneapolis but nothing here and I wanted to bring a pro wrestling company here and bring pro wrestling to the fans that I knew we’re going to be in Sioux Falls because I’d wrestled here with WWE but they needed their own hometown production.”

Dinsmore on why he’s putting on his show to benefit St. Luke’s and create organ donor awareness: “They’re trying to create funds so that if families that might not have the ability to afford a heart transplant, can afford a heart transplant. It’s a special thing because Coach is out there changing lives and we’re just happy to be a part of it and be able to put it on a platform.”

Nick Dinsmore on what fans can expect: “It’s gonna be a big event. Record-breaking crowds are expected. Eugene’s gonna be there. There’s going to be titles on the line. There’s going to be ups and downs and turns and ins and outs and I’m going to take Coach up and down, pillar to post, up Main Avenue and back down in a Sioux Falls street fight. We’re going to do it for a good cause and we’re going to do it in the best little city in America, Sioux Falls.”
