(Classic Rock) Glenn Danzig has revealed he wanted to be a pro wrestler before he found fame as a musician. The Misfits frontman says he gave up on his wrestling dream because he thought he was too small.

In an interview with pro wrestler and Fozzy frontman Chris Jericho's Talk Is Jericho podcast, Danzig says: "I wanted to be a wrestler. But I didn't think I was big enough. Then I met some wrestlers and I'm like, 'I could've been a wrestler.' But it all worked out pretty good in the end.

"In high school I used to wrestle and then I saw my friend's arm snap when he fell in a wrong hold. He had metal pins in three spots and I was like, 'I think I'm gonna go back to my band.'

"I guess it's better that I wasn't... but I get about the same amount of injuries as you guys!" Read more here.
