• Petey Williams Comments On Impact Wrestling Thinking Out Of The Box
During a recent appearance on Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Petey Williams talked about Impact Wrestling thinking out of the box, The Windsor fans at the latest Impact tapings, Trevor Lee being booked as an enhancement level despite being so good and more.
Below are the highlights:
On Impact Wrestling going out of the box:
“If you look at last week’s Impact where Eddie Edwards breaks into his own home, apparently, and then his wife clears out all his stuff and then he looks into the mirror and Sami Callihan’s in the mirror. I think that works with Impact. If WWE does that, it’s gonna be like, “uh, right,” but it works with us because sometimes we go outside of the box and people are okay with that because it’s like, ‘Oh that’s a nice little cool produce segment’ and all that kind of stuff. I think people like that.”
On The Windsor fans at the latest Impact tapings:
“That’s where [Scott D’Amore] runs Border City Wrestling. When he runs those Border City Wrestling shows, he pretty much runs two big shows a year, maybe six months apart we’ll just say, whenever they fall, like March and October or whatever. So if he does it right, we just filmed there in June, if we could come back there in let’s say December or something, I think the fans would be like, ‘I can’t wait for Impact to come back.’ If we did it every month, it definitely wouldn’t work. But if we tour around and then come back in December to that, I think for years the fans would pack that place and be into it and eat it up pretty much.”
On Trevor Lee being booked as an enhancement level despite being so good:
“I wish I had an answer for that because I was watching the Rich Swann and Trevor Lee match and Trevor is just, I mean he’s so good, man, he’s just, he’s so good! I mean he’s that heel that … it’s not like he’s enhancement, it’s like he’s that heel that you’re gonna fight him and beat him before you’re gonna go on to challenge for the X-Division Title. It’s not like ‘Oh you’re the first guy that he beats’ even though it’s Rich Swann’s first match, but you know it’s Rich Swann. I don’t know, but I agree. Trevor’s so good and he’s such a good heel and he’s so good in the ring and stuff. I don’t know why.”
• WWF Legend Says His Daughter Wants To Be A WWE Wrestler
During a recent appearance on Good Morning America, Old School WWF Legend The Rock revealed that his 16 year old daughter Simone wants to become a WWE wrestler.
The Great One also noted that he thinks his daughter will be a future champion in the WWE:
“Yeah, here’s the crazy thing with my daughter, Simone, she’s so smart, she’s going into her senior year, she signed with IMG as a model, [and was a] Golden Globes Ambassador. Simon is working so hard – and her work has already started – she wants to be a WWE Wrestler.
I love the idea. We had this big conversation, she came with me to Hong Kong [and] Beijing. I said, ‘Honey, whatever your passion is, I support that. And wrestling was good to me, I started my career in Madison Square Garden. So, yeah, bring it on, she’s going to be a champ.”
