AEW Star Evil Uno recently spoke with Fightful on a number of topics such as his history streaming on Twitch.
Evil Uno said:
“So I actually did Twitch streaming over a decade ago. I used to review independent gaming in general. I would review two or three games a week. I’ve written some pieces for certain websites and stuff. When the pandemic hit, truthfully I didn’t know if I was gonna have a job anymore. We didn’t know what the world is like. I still live in Canada and so I was a prisoner of my own home for several months. I was starting to get stir crazy and I thought, ‘You know what? This is a way for me to engage my audience because I’m not capable of doing it on television. I’ll go back to doing what I used to do.’ I love Twitch streaming. I’m a big gamer. That’s why I got my AEW Games role in Twitch and content creation in the last decade.”
Evil Uno also spoke about how his experience in Twitch helped him get a job with AEW Games.
Evil Uno said:
“So it’s a great way for fans to get a personal interaction with me while I am also simultaneously doing something I enjoy. It’s not a forced experience. I’m at home. I get to respond to what people say. I get to pick and choose what I respond to. It’s really blown up through the pandemic. I think it’s really—not just me—but almost everyone, it died out a little bit. Everyone wants to go back to going to shows and going to public places. But it’s been a very pivotal part of my growth in the last two years and I’m very grateful I got to start Twitch and it got me my job at AEW Games.”
