• Gangrel Gives His Views On AEW Beating NXT, Hell In A Cell 2019 Finish
During a recent interview on WINCLY podcast, Old School WWF Attitude Era Veteran Gangrel talked about AEW vs. NXT, Hell In A Cell 2019 main event finish & more.
Below are the highlights:
On if AEW vs. NXT feels like WCW vs. WWF:
“I don’t know. It feels like the start of it. I’m not real good with numbers but I heard AEW did a higher number than NXT on Wednesday. But AEW is new and anybody that’s interested in wrestling is gonna check them out.
So I’d say give it six months and then let’s reevaluate that question.”
On if AEW approached him for a backstage role:
“I have terrible communication skills and I’m surprised just to get this interview [laughs]. I’m friends with a lot of those guys but I’ve never been asked for anything. Nobody’s approached me but I would love to do something like that. But I think it’s really cool for pro wrestling as I train students and it gives them another avenue to go.”
On the finish of the Hell In A Cell 2019 main event between Seth Rollins & The Fiend:
“I’ve heard things…I don’t know, what is no DQ or no contest? How do you get DQed? How do you justify that.
I think they confused everybody. I didn’t see it so I can’t give an honest opinion but I’m definitely gonna watch it…Sometimes you just put things together on paper and it sounds good and when you relay it to the wrestlers it sounds good, but it doesn’t get across to the fans.
Sometimes you can be too smart for your own good and confuse the hell out of everybody.”
