Malakai Black Talks About Thinking Outside The Box, Wanting Bryan Danielson Match (Video)

Malakai Black recently appeared as a guest on the Casual Conversations with the Classic podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the AEW star spoke about being interested in having another match against Orange Cassidy, as well as enjoying thinking outside the box, wanting to work with Bryan Danielson and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On how another match against Orange Cassidy would be interesting: “As strange as this matchup may sound, but I think the strangest, sometimes, like the more interesting it becomes, how would we find a way to have myself compete against Orange Cassidy? That’s when it becomes interesting for me. And matchup doesn’t always necessarily mean we have to figure out to go 25 minutes. That’s not what I mean. It’s like how would the dynamic work? Where would the intrigue come from, and how would that project itself on TV through the lens of a camera onto people at home watching it on TV, or sitting in the crowd, you know?”

On how he enjoys different dynamics that make him think outside the box: “These kinds of dynamics make it interesting because then you have to think about how would I present that? And how can I do that in a way that makes sense, and how it is fun, and how it launches people and it doesn’t cut people back down, you know what I mean? Because that’s an important thing, you have to build up.”

On other talents he wants to work with including Bryan Danielson: “There’s so many talented people, but also I feel like it’s a perfect platform for myself and Bryan Danielson to work, it’s a perfect platform for me and Bobby Fish to work, it’s the perfect platform for perhaps me and Punk at some point.”
