On episode two of Dropkick DiSKussions, which you can catch exclusively via Sportskeeda Wrestling's YouTube and social media channels, we spoke with WWE Superstar Mark Andrews while the NXT UK man was touring with his band Junior, promoting their new album Beautiful Life.

The Welsh high-flyer opened up about just how difficult it is to balance life on the road as a wrestler with...well, life on the road as a musician!

It is [difficult] but I quite like the challenge. We were talking today about going to the gym while on tour. When you're in the wrestling bubble, around loads of other wrestlers, it's a priority for everyone.
When you're on tour, driving from Wrexham to Glasgow astoday, tomorrow is here to Manchester. When you're in the van for five hours at a time, it is quite hard to maintain a decent diet and hit the gym regularly and stuff - but it's also quite rewarding then when you manage to pull it off!
Equally that's why sometimes we will have a month or two at a time where it does seem quiet in Camp Junior, because I might be off in America or Si might be touring with Novo Amor.

We accepted a long time ago that we were never going to be in the same situation as other bands. We're never going to be able to climb the ladder of the music industry in the same way that other bands do, be able to tour constantly, but I kind of like that in a way because it's a bit different.
We just do what we can and when we do end up doing a tour like this one, it's really, really fun. We're not burnt out.
