Moose recently spoke with the Juice Pro Wrestling podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the IMPACT Champion spoke about Billy Corgan’s idea to introduce the Grand Championship, what he personally thought of the idea and more.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On Billy Corgan’s idea to introduce the Grand Championship: “That was Billy Corgan’s idea. I’m sorry Billy but that was a terrible fucking idea. There was history behind it, I get it, it was something they did in England with the rounds, but I think in this era of wrestling, it’s stupid because let’s say the last minute of a round, you have the crowd up here, then it ends and you have to take a two-minute break. In that break, you have the crowd from up here to back down to zero. When the round starts, you have to bring them back up. It sucks. It’s like watching a killer match, it being over, and you’re waiting for the next match. That’s how I felt like with rounds and why it was stupid. Great idea, just not for wrestling. Unless you go back to how WWE did it where it was shoot boxing. It was a better idea on paper. I haven’t met one guy on the roster who actually liked that format.”
On thinking the idea was dumb: “The belt was cool and all, but I thought it was dumb. The idea I had, and I think it would be a great idea but obviously no one in IMPACT listens to me, and that’s for good reasons anyway. I think you come out with a championship and the winner of the championship always picks the match stipulation. Maybe they bring the Grand Championship back and make that stipulation with it. The champion always picks the stipulation. It always puts the challenger in a spot where he wrestles the champion in a match he is great at. You have to beat him in his style.”
