Gillberg Reveals Reaction To Winning Light Heavyweight Championship In 1998

Famed 90's jobber Gillberg recently interviewed with Wrestling Inc revealing his emotional response to winning the Light Heavyweight Championship from Christian on November 23, 1998. Check out the moment and interview highlights below.

Enhancement Talent:

“I wasn’t enhancement talent, I was a wrestler in the WWF,” Gill said of his first WWE stint as a jobber during the early 90s. “I was a fan. I loved it. That’s all I wanted to be was a wrestler in the WWF. I was a wrestler in the WWF! Enhancement doesn’t matter to me. I was there wrestling the best there was in the best place there was to wrestle every night. How could you be disappointed in that? I was a fan who got his dream fulfilled. That’s the only way I can say it.”

On Crying After Winning The Title:

“I cried. I went right into Vince’s office and cried. It was everything to me. Wrestling is what it is, but to me, it’s my life.”
