This week on “Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia,” Lilian sits down with WWE Superstar, Zack Ryder! This episode dives into Zack’s journey about growing up in Long Island and, from a young age, knowing that he wanted to be a professional wrestler. Find out his reaction to not only being friends with the same guys he would watch on TV in high school, but also having his own action figure after being such an avid toy collector. Hear all about how Zack maintains a positive outlook on life even when the odds were against him, and how important and powerful it is to set goals. Zack discusses his hit YouTube show, Z! True Long Island Story, how it got so popular, and also why it eventually fizzled out. Zack also mentions what it was like teaming with Mojo Rawley as part of the Hype Bros and if he would ever team with his old Edgehead partner, Curt Hawkins. Zack also shares exclusive details on how he got inserted into the Wrestlemania 32 Intercontinental Championship match at the last minute, ended up winning it, and how he felt losing it the next day. Zack opens up like never before about his cancer diagnosis when he was in high school, how he ultimately overcame it, and why he never wanted to tell anyone he was a Make-A-Wish kid. Be prepared as this is a very powerful episode with unexpected twists and turns along with lots of laughs as Zack and I share our favorite botches! It’s about to get real, raw, and inspiring with Zack Ryder!
