Colby Corino was a recent guest on the “Battleground Podcast” and commented on his current goal to win the NWA Junior Heavyweight title, why anyone who is a wrestler should want to win an NWA Championship, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his current goal: “Oh, my plans haven’t changed. I’m still going after that Junior Heavyweight belt. I don’t know if y’all know this, but when I was 14 years old, I actually challenged for the Junior Heavyweight belt for the first time. So the Crockett Cup was my second chance at it. It feels like that’s been the belt that I’ve always wanted to go after. Like, it’s got such lineage with like Jushin Thunder Ligers, Shinjiro Otani, Jimmy Rave, Dory Funk Jr. There’s so many people on that list that like, I really feel like, I really want to add my name to that legacy.”
On how anyone who is a wrestler should want to win an NWA Championship: “I know I’ve always wanted to win an NWA Title. Like, it’s just one of those things. There’s so much history and tradition with it, that it just feels right for — if you want to be a pro wrestler, you want to win an NWA World Title.”
