Other Wrestling

  • Malakai Black is the guest on today’s episode of Talk is Jericho. He spoke about working with Paul Heyman in WWE: “Since day one, me and Paul meshed. I love that man. He's always been really good to me. He's been blunt with me and I appreciate people being blunt with me, don't dance around the subject, just tell me how it is, especially in this business. Paul had big ideas, not just with me, but with a lot of younger people like Buddy Murphy. He once told me that he had one night of control, that was the first night. After that, everything became a fight. Maybe 'fight' is not the right word, but a debate. I can understand, but it makes you wonder. I let it go because we were fighting tooth and nail to get me out of the room and to progress.”
  • On Pro Wrestling 4 Life with Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, Nick Gage spoke about the conversation he had with Tony Khan after his match against Chris Jericho on last week’s Dynamite:

That’s [Domino’s situation] just a coincidence, sh*t happens. Tony [Khan], Tony came up to me all fired up. I came back and he was, you know, in what they call Gorilla Position, he got up out his chair, came right up to me, I looked that man dead in his eyes and I said, ‘Man, you got something awesome going here. Thank you for f*cking making me feel at home here’ and I was just fired up and he said, ‘Thank you’ and he said, ‘What an awesome match bro.’ You know, he got up out of his chair, went around the Gorilla Position, looked me in the eyes and I looked him in the eyes, just told him them words man. But, I just keep it real. I’m a real motherf*cker, I just speak the truth. I just gave him the truth, how I felt at the moment and hopefully he said the same thing to me and was telling the truth. He showed me nothing but love [like] I’d been there the whole time. I talked to that guy plenty of times and came off nothing but sincere to me, you know?

  • Juventud Guerrera told Sports Illustrated about facing Jericho on Dynamite tonight: “For me to come back at this moment, to this stage in AEW, the hottest company with the best talent in wrestling, it’s a blessing. For me and Chris, this is a great opportunity to showcase what we did and what we can still do. Chris has such a great mind for the business. He always knows the right time and the right moment. This is going to be a very special night for wrestling fans.”
