"I've recently been in contact with him, he's a real great guy. And obviously a good person to have as a fan," Wall said.
Another pro-wrestler, Curtis Axel, who Wall knows through a mutual friend in Kentucky tweeted back saying he's been listening to Wall's music as well.
"How this all happened is just insane to me, but I'm happy that it did," Wall said.
You're late to the party brother. I've been listening to this kid for months! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Ruling?src=hash">#Ruling</a> <a href="https://t.co/P8rViCZRiE">https://t.co/P8rViCZRiE</a>—@RealCurtisAxel
As well, a couple of Wall's songs were featured on Dog the Bounty Hunter. That came about through the musician's connection to Saskatoon-born celebrity Shannon Tweed.
"[She] was kind enough to spread the good word to a friend of hers who is Beth Chapman, who is Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife," Wall explained.
After it aired, Wall said there was some strong social medial activity.
As for music sales, "so far I'm still able to eat and still able to sustain and survive off of what I making through my music," he said.
Wall has been touring out West and down in Nashville. He is currently taking a few days off to help friends build a fence in Herbert, Sask.
