10. Abyss Talks Being Compared To Mick Foley, Why Wrestling Companies Are Looking To Expand In India

During a recent interview with Wrestling Epicenter, TNA Veteran Abyss talked about Mick Foley joining TNA and being compared to him, Wrestling companies looking to expand in India & more. Below are the highlights:

On Wrestling Companies looking to expand in India:

“Well, I mean, it is such a large market! If I’m not mistaken, there are close to 1.3 billion people in the country of India. There’s 300 million in the United States, so it is 3 times larger than the United States population wise. It is a great market! The fans are hungry for wrestling there, I really believe that! I believe it has been underexposed there. The fans love it and it shows and you’ll see it in our shows. It is an important market to Impact Wrestling. To develop that market. …Sony Six has been such a great partner there. They’ve done a lot for us. We’re excited for that relationship and making it stronger as we go forward and making Impact Wrestling a big part of India!”

On being compared to Mick Foley:

“I was super excited when Mick came to Impact. I’ve always looked up to him and I have been compared to him a lot, the similarities. I kind of take that as a honor. I’m honored by that. I’m not insulted by that by any means. When he came in to Impact in 2009, I had the opportunity to work with him on a pay-per-view, I think it was Bound for Glory in Irvine, California. …It was great, man. I just enjoyed getting to sit with him and talk to him and I did learn a lot from him. He really taught me a lot about keeping it a story and making everything mean something. That is a lot of what I took from being around him and working with him. I’ve always heard the comparisons to Mankind and to Mick, Kane, and Undertaker and so forth. I think there are definite elements. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to do something original. But, I also think with Impact Wrestling, I’ve been able to do things to make the character stand out on its own and give it its own unique features and characteristics as well.”
