No Way Jose is another wrestler fan of BTS! He was tweeting throughout their online concert earlier this year, and has even said that his bias is Suga because of his impactful rapping. When asked about the group and his favorite members, he said:
They’re all great!! They work so well together and each brings something unique. But, whenever I watch something where they are being themselves, Jin makes me laugh the most! Dude is a character! But when they perform, I’d have to say Suga. His delivery is always impactful. I am not a fluent Korean speaker by any means, but when he raps you can feel and understand what he’s talking about!

She’s so fun, just a hoot. I’d be in the make-up chair every morning while she showed me stupid YouTube videos. She introduced me to “Gangnam Style”. Seriously, she was into K-pop long before anyone else. She threw a party for me. Tilda Swinton on the dance floor is a force of nature. She knows how to get down.
