My Biggest Stock Show Oops Moment Is:
My biggest oops moment happened as I was leaving the ring at a show. I went up to the judge to shake his hand. He was going for a fist bump, which I wasn’t expecting so I awkwardly shook his fist in a moment of panic. He just laughed, but I was very embarrassed.
