    Jesse Sorensen was interviewed by Ryan Rider of Here are some highlights.

    On his neck injury: When I first got hurt, I had no feeling from the neck down so it was very scary. I thought I was the next Christopher Reeves. I was completely paralyzed for two days and told I would never move again, never wrestle again. Iím very blessed.

    On his recovery following the injury: Right after I got out of the ICU, I had to sit in a neck brace for three months then I had six months of rehab to strengthen my neck and try to get back in the gym. Now Iím fully back in the gym and everythingís going good. I actually have my first bodybuilding show in October in Tampa.

    Sorensen on returning to the ring: My passion for the business Ė I love this business. Itís my dream, always has been and itís really what I wanted to do. So many say it was a job and now youíre done with it and tell me to find something else to do. But when itís your passion, itís all I think about is getting back in the ring. As of right now, itís not really up to me [when to return]. I want to focus on the bodybuilding show for a little while. But I would like to hopefully return before the end of 2013.
