Moose recently spoke with our friend Raj Giri from Wrestling Inc on a media conference call to promote this Sunday’s Impact Wrestling Slammiversary XVI pay-per-view in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On Austin Aries’ trash-talk about his dedication to the business: “Aries is known for his trash talk and I’m not gonna go there with him. I mean he can believe whatever he believes. I know what’s true and there’s that.”
On his thoughts on Aries as an Impact Champion and his intentions for their showdown at Slammiversary XVI: “I mean he’s been a good champion. I mean guess so, he’s been a decent champion. I have a lot of respect for Aries. He is the Belt Collector, he does carry all the titles from a lot of independent promotions around. I mean he’s a veteran of the game.
“I could sit here and list a bunch of things, accomplishments Aries has had. Or you would Wikipedia it. I know what my game plan is for Sunday and what I need to do to fulfill my game plan to come home with the Impact World Championship.”
On his plans to show new moves this Sunday: “[I plan] to pull a bunch of tricks out of my toolbox that some people haven’t seen before and some they have. Things I haven’t done in a long time. I mean I’m putting it all on the table and leaving it all in the ring. It sounds cliche-ish but that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.”
