Welcome to another edition of the No Punches Pulled interview series. It is current NYWC fusion champion "Nobody's Betta" Michael Mistretta.
RL: Were you a wrestling fan growing up? MM: In 4th grade a kid named Kevin introduced me to wrestling and I was hooked. Don't know or care where Kevin is today.
RL: When did you decide you were going to wrestle? MM: When I started watching it I knew it was what I wanted to do. It was a tough choice but I decided to put my dream of becoming President of the United States aside for wrestling.

RL: What are your memories of being placed with Iri$h & J-Redd? MM: It was cool to be put with J-Redd and be able to learn from him. When Iri$h joined I was like guy is definitely a liability. Then he went and got hit by a car so my assumption was right.
RL: What are your memories of Alvin Alvarez? MM: Decent guy with funny looking chest.
RL: What are your memories of Ultimo Maya? MM: Being handcuffed while he beat me with a stick. He enjoyed it much more than he should have.
RL: What are your memories of Cono? MM: We were never in the company at the same time. Aren't you supposed to know this stuff?
RL: I can't be expected to know evertything. What are your memories of Cuffed & Caged match against Alvin, Maya, & King Mega? MM: Another one of those matches where I get to the back and someone tells me that I earned their respect. That's great I guess.
RL: What are your memories of Mike Verna? MM: Beat him at Hotter Than Hell last year.

RL: What are your memories of Leo Blackstone? MM: Alex is What you call a physical specimen. Our tag match at April Reign 2018 will forever be one of my favorites.

RL: What are your memories of Cuffed & Caged match with Iri$h & J-Redd? MM: Barbed aire went playing into the crowd. Shame it didn't poke your eye out.
RL: What are your memories of refereeing at Tropix On The Mile? MM: If anyone who is a referee thinks their job is hard they are just being a bitch. Piece of cake.

RL: What are your memories of matches with Matt Striker? MM: It was a chance to prove myself to everyone. Going into it I was pretty much the only guy from my academy class and even the class after that who haven't gotten the opportunity to wrestle a former television star.

RL: What are your memories of matches with Johnny Radke? MM: I beat him twice. I actually beat everyone in The 5th Dimension and exposed that panda. That's right it isn't a grizzly, it's a panda. I'm pretty sure even you realize that.
RL: What are your memories of Ryan Clancy? MM: Beat him twice.
RL: What are your memories of James Rammison? MM: He walked into the academy at the beginning of 2019 and I claimed him immediately. He will do great things some day.
RL: No doubt about it. What are your memories of The Audacity? MM: The coolest freaking guys in indy wrestling. We look so badass together, the whole group does. Some people don't get the bright colores with the dark/psychopath attitude and hockey masks. NYWC is notorious for having factions that wear all black so we want to be different. We aren't devil worshippers, we are just punks.

RL: Is there anything you would like to say to the fans? MM: Uew. Hello incels and simps. You are welcome that I took the time out of my busy schedule to grace you with this interview.
