Chase Owens recently spoke with Aaron Varble for our friends at WrestlingInc.com about missing NJPW Dominion, whether or not he wants to sign with WWE, why he’s not “All In” and his recent work with Infinite Pro Wrestling in Chesapeake Ohio.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the Chase Owens interview.
On missing the NJPW Dominion show: “I watched Kenny and Okada, I did watch the whole match. Probably tomorrow I’ll watch the rest of the Dominion show,” Owens said. “I got to the hotel and I watched Kenny and Okada’s match and anytime they wrestle it’s amazing. Arguably the two best professional wrestlers going today and every time they step together it’s magic. I talked to Kenny, not a lot for about 15, 20 minutes of texts back and forth because he’s in Japan and the time difference you know all that good stuff.”
On if he regrets working small towns in the U.S. while his friends are doing big things in Japan: “No, it is what it is I was over there for the three weeks before that for the Best Of The Super Juniors tour so It’s alright. I took a break not having to have to beat your body up every night so it’s alright.”
On being excited to see what happens next after seeing guys like Chris Jericho and Rey Mysterio pop up in NJPW: “As 2017, 2018 has shown it’s really unpredictable about what’s going to happen next. I mean you mention the Dominion show and Rey Mysterio was there. You know who would have thought that? So, I’m going to sit back and see just like everybody else.”
On his interest level in signing with WWE: “I’m happy where I’m at right now. New Japan takes good care of us. I’m making the most money I’ve ever made in my career. I’m able to pay my car off, I’m able to get out of debt of stuff I had, doctor’s bills from stuff in early in my wrestling career getting injuries so I’m happy where I’m at right now.”
