Jesse Sorensen was interviewed by Ryan Rider of CJAD.com. 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. I’m 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 I’m fully back in the gym and everything’s going good. I actually have my first bodybuilding show in October in Tampa.

Sorensen on returning to the ring: My passion for the business – I love this business. It’s my dream, always has been and it’s really what I wanted to do. So many say it was a job and now you’re done with it and tell me to find something else to do. But when it’s your passion, it’s all I think about is getting back in the ring. As of right now, it’s 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.
