Greg, Rj City, Jim Backus discussed on Busted Open
So if you're a fan and you were at that show I mean that's probably one of the things that you remember the most is that even if you don't remember what was going on in that match you remember. This guy was in there for damn near an hour so every time that I'm back at the Melrose ballroom in New York in Queens. I seem I feel like I'm at home. I get a really good reaction from on the crowd So this is one of my favorite places I do. Enjoy the atmosphere of kind of like the smaller. Venue the nightclub tale venue where you have a balcony and there's people out there it's just a different atmosphere than the large open spaces that you get like convention centers and stuff like ban. I prefer the more intimate setting. In the Melrose Boreham is very similar to the event in Orlando that Mel W is at the guild nightclub. It's very similar. Look like everything else so you probably feel at home there. Well I mentioned the melrose ballroom for reason. Not the Orlando Guilt. I the crowd here. I think is a little more with with the action. That's going on in the Roswell as I think the product the EMEL W fans of a certain you know it's it's it's a a wrestling based company that they have their own fan base. I mean from www impact. We are all the same. But what's going can attract fans watch something different it's the athletes and the basic management style. I feel MSW does have a more of an athletic almost like a new Japan. Japanese Japanese style base or a mixture of And those fans are really really into that style. And it's it's showing by the success of Emo w yeah absolutely and you mentioned the style and that seems to be a style that is really not just with them. L. W. but also all all over the world of pro wrestling. Do you see that growing more and more do you. Do you feel. There is a good connection between the two. Yeah obviously like Russell goes to do these. Large Epson Ebbs and flows and you have Different styles come up throughout the years. Obviously there's been like since the nineties. More of a Lucia Lebron Salman talking about new Japan. Or you know a strong style. I guess some people would say a harder hitting style But now kind of the best guys from each style have been locked up you know. They've been They've been around for a while people seeing what they can do. And they've kind of infiltrated did the the larger I guess wrestling you know like the wrestling world. You know. There's there's more there's more japanese-style wrestling there's more wrestling with acrobatic high spots And now is the time for another style of wrestling to kind of emerge. I think it is this More realistic I guess you could say or more martial arts based style Talk about animal w kind of being a representative that here will as you're talking about that. I'm thinking about this show. That's happening tomorrow night. And it's like Davey Boy Smith Junior is on the show right Timothy Thatcher Shinjiro Otani You know those are all guys who are known as wrestlers like professional wrestlers through and through and then you throw in Richard Holiday M J F Hammer Stone in this tournament as well so you get a good mix of everything But the guys that you much like I mentioned Angelique David Boy Smith Junior. We're talking about the style they boy Smith Junior Timothy Thatcher Myself Simon Simon Grimm's Ivan God ship Douglas this James King Mo dominant Greenie. These are all guys now under the mold of you banner who have a fighting back around. And I haven't even mentioned low key yet. Yeah you know so. There's a ton of guys who while they may not all be specifically like a Jujitsu player or enemy guys. They are all martial artists in a way and I think that is going to be the next wave. And then you have like a man's Warner and Jimmy Havoc that those guys that you know bring in you know staple guns and everything thing else of man's can throw down. I was hoping we'd get. Manson studio is going to bring in a case of Bud Light. I think would appreciate that. He's probably like fifteen skin. Deep all started bears debut brother and who would have thought that in the age of a throwback. Because there's a lot of wrestlers that I've never been in a real fight and there's a lot of wrestlers out. They're not you know saying anyone is in tough but to me you need to be at least one real fight to understand psychology Or like you. If you go down in Dallas you may get jumped then you have to be able to defend yourself and I like the fact that. MSW Does have some tough guys and that's important for wrestling and gives you credibility when you're already credible Mike.
