I know back in the day they had two matches on Sunday so they had 200+ matches [in a year], but 106 man, I’m proud of it and I’m thankful that the company has a trust in me to go out there and do my thing.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)

There were so many things in my education that I really needed help on and I didn’t get that help and it’s not just me, it’s a a wide bunch of people. So finding out all this about myself, I just want to show people that like, you know, like, yeah, I’ve got autism. I have ADHD as well. I’m super dyslexic. I can’t read. I had to have someone read my contract out for me. So like, it’s super embarrassing, man. It really is. But like, I feel like I’ve got to the point where I am because of all these things that make me who I am and I want to inspire people. So like, a lot of people don’t take risks on people that do have autism around my area. I would like to hope that seeing me doing this stuff, it does inspire other people.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)
  • In a recent interview with the iHeart Radio Cincy show, Swerve Strickland gave his thoughts about how he identifies with AEW. Strickland stated “I can identify with AEW in a lot of ways because when I first came to AEW, a lot of people didn’t look at me as being in the position that I’m in now. Consistency and growth and staying focused and out of a lot of bullcrap really kept me going, progressing, and moving forward. Putting my ego aside. Following humility. Being a team player and understanding where my position is and where I want to go, but also understanding, ‘No, I’m ready.’ Knowing when to push the limits a little bit. That is what AEW is all about. When I was watching and seeing it from 2021 and 2022 when I came in, it was about pushing those boundaries, challenging the authority and structure of how pro wrestling was breaking a little, and creating and making things your own. Proving those naysayers wrong and doing things your way. There’s a lot of doubt and criticisms to face, and still face to this day. I still face those things to this day, so I can relate and see myself in what AEW is. I feel like that relationship is what’s bringing me to the forefront of pro wrestling right now, especially an African American man, we already face certain criticisms with moving goalposts and certain things, which aren’t discussed about, but they are always there, those little talks are and we see it and hear it, and I feel it. To break the mold, that’s what I’m here to do.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)
  • In a recent interview with the Chek Vancolour podcast, Adam Copeland gave his thoughts about the uplifting promo he gave on the April 3rd AEW Dynamite show involving him thanking AEW and being supportive of the company. Copeland’s comments were in response to CM Punk’s comments bashing AEW and AEW CEO Tony Khan in a recent episode of The MMA Hour show. Copeland stated “I didn’t, no. I just saw clips. I have better things to do. I really do. I have kids. I don’t really care what anybody really has to say. However, what I will say is, from the small clips, I realized that our locker room needed a good message. So, last week, I went out and spoke to that. It’s a young locker room, and it’s a young locker room that, for me, because it’s a different time, we try to support each other. I came in to locker rooms where it was everybody for themselves and it was a bunch of great whites. I never subscribed to that. I always subscribed to the Bret Hart school of, ‘You can help.’ You can help young people and try and be positive and show that you don’t have to be a dick. I don’t know how else to put it. For me, I try to focus on the positives. There are so many negatives in the world today. They are both there to find. Why not look for the positives? For me, our young locker room needed to hear the positives. That’s why I went out and did what I did last week. I don’t need to search out the other stuff. I have better things to do, I have kids to put to bed. I have the Maple Leafs to watch.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)
  • In the same interview, Adam Copeland also gave his thoughts about his heel run during his time in WWE and his belief of not being sure if him being a heel character would work anymore. Copeland stated “It’s always fun to play a character where your job is to fall flat on your face and to have no redeeming qualities and that’s easy. It’s easy to get people to not like you. Especially in today’s climate, it’s hard to get an audience on your side. I think the only reason I’ve been able to up until this point is because everyone understands the real story of Adam behind the character and the battle to get this thing back after being forced to retire. So I think now, as much as it’d be nice to try and be heel, I tried it once and it failed pretty miserably (he laughed). So, I don’t know if it would work anymore. But, it was fun while it lasted for sure.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)

  • In a recent interview with PWMania, Deonna Purrazzo gave her thoughts about Mercedes Mone’s recent arrival in AEW and AEW’s Women’s division. Purrazzo stated “Yeah. Like I said, it’s been incredible for me to come in, to debut in my hometown, to get the reception I got, and then just a few months later for Mercedes to come in and kind of get to do that herself and stake her claim. She just said last week she wants a shot at the TBS Championship. So it’s going to be interesting to see where that goes, who she wrestles, whether it’s Willow or Julia. Our entire division is just so stacked in these acquisitions that Tony’s bringing in, really continue to just like elevate the game and there’s so many dream scenarios, so many dream matches for everybody and that’s what you want out of a division. That’s how it grows, that’s how you keep interest and I really feel so excited and so grateful to be a part of that right now.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)

As Shayna [Shayna Baszler] likes to say, there is no fake way to take a chairshot. You’re actually getting hit with a chair. It’s also not a competition. A lot of wrestlers and stuff will be like, ‘Wrestling is real. I got this injury or that injury.’ I’m like, okay, as a competitor in an actual sport, I’m never worried about getting injured. I’m worried about losing. That’s the most stressful part of it. Injuries are not at all what you’re thinking about. That’s not what makes it real or makes it hard. It’s the uncertainty of the outcome. When people are like, ‘it’s a real sport.’ No, it’s not a sport. It’s a very intense performance, which I have a lot of respect for, but it’s not a sport. If you’ve ever dealt with the stress and anxiety that comes with competition, you can’t take that out and call it a sport. It’s so tough. It’s very physical, but it’s not a sport.” (Transcript h/t: Fightful.com)
