During a recent appearance on the One-On-One podcast for Ad Free Shows, Danny Limelight commented on the advice he received from Aron Stevens (Damien Sandow in WWE), and more. He said,
“I was mixing wanting to be Danny Limelight. I was mixing being a father. I was mixing being a Marine, then trying to be Danny Rivera on TV. So it was just a lot for me to handle at the time. Then in 2020, Aron Stevens, formerly known as Damien Sandow, he kind of sat me down and was like, ‘you can do all this shit. You can do all the things, you can fly, you can grapple, you know, you’ve got all of that. This is what’s going to take you to the next level.’ He’s like, ‘you can be Danny Limelight, but we want you to be this Puerto Rican street kid, from New York, from your upbringing. Just go back to your roots’ is the word he said. ‘Go back to your roots.’ And I said ‘huh, I remember my roots.’ I never forget where I came from. So I was like, ‘alright, I’ll do this.’ And I think that’s when I made that decision to just be Danny Limelight, who I am, Puerto Rican kid from New York City, that’s when I started having the better matches of my career.”
Limelight will be teaming with Slice Boogie to face off against Los Parks in a Philly Street Fight for the MLW Tag Team titles at tonight’s MLW War Chamber event.
