SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions American Alpha recently spoke with The Sun about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On wrestling at their first WrestleMania:
“I like to compare it to my Olympic experience,” Gable said. “I didn’t have much time to think and build up to that – it was just training, training, training. [People asked me] ‘Are you worried? Are you excited? Nervous?’ I was like, ‘I don’t know, I’m just training’. But when I got to London, you felt the buzz around town. It was everywhere. That’s when it hit me. I think the same thing’s going to happen once we get to Orlando, because WrestleMania takes over the whole town. It’s not just that one day, in that one building. It’s a week-long ordeal. I think once we land there and get going in Orlando it’s going to start to set in.”
On possible working with Kurt Angle:
“It would be great to work with Kurt. He paved the way for us amateur wrestlers,” Jordan said, when asked about possibly working with Angle in the future. “Also, his mind – the way he works in ring – it’s a thing of beauty. It’s amazing. There are all these stories we’ve heard about Kurt Angle – and obviously we’ve gotten some comparisons – but it would be really nice to work hand-in-hand with him, help get our game to the next level. Obviously he has so much experience that he can put upon us. It would be great to just sit under the tree of knowledge and let him talk with us and give us some pointers.”
“We’re really looking forward to Orlando,” Gable added. “Maybe we’ll get a minute to sit down with him and ask a few things. He did the exact path that we’re trying to do right now and succeeded in the biggest possible way. If there’s anyone that’s going to help Jason and I, he’s the man for the job.”
