I don't like that “Creepy Joe” one. I don't like J-Lau, but I'm not going to trade it for another terrible one. You don't get to pick your own nickname. A couple of guys that I train with and have known since high school-they're the ones who started the “J-Lau” thing. I can't get away from it. It's been so long now. That's how people know me. Not everyone is an expert and could say 'Oh, he changed his nickname, you can't call him that anymore.' They know me as “J-Lau” so it's still going to be “J-Lau” to them. I'm stuck with it. it's a terrible nickname. Whatever. I hated j-lau at first because of the whole Jennifer Lopez reference. It kind of sucked and I tried to hate it at first. It was the same thing with‘Creepy Joe.’ I kind of liked ‘Baby Joe’ though. For BJ to be talking so much good stuff about me and for Rudy [Valentino] to say that I remind him of BJ, it was something else.BJ’s name comes from ‘Baby Jay’ and for him to say so many good things about me and then use a nick name for me that is kind of like his name was pretty cool. But ‘J-Lau’ stuck so it’s fine. At least it gets them to say my name right.
