Kenny King recently spoke with Brian Fritz for Sporting News to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On his recent match against Kushida:
Kushida is amazing. Kushida is not just one of the best cruiserweights in the world, he’s one of the best wrestlers in the world. To be able to get in the ring with Kushida and go step for step with him and not just to prove to everybody else but prove to him that I am in that same league and I belong, it’s part of actually what I was focused on when I was on “The Bachelorette”. I knew that I was going to be focusing on making myself the best wrestler possible and that’s the culmination of all that. Every opportunity that I get from here on out, you’re going to be to see the very best version of me.
On wanting to work in New Japan and the next step in reaching his goals:
When it comes to something like that, I think you have to take it day-by-day, step-by-step, match-by-match. Every single match that is coming up I have to look at it like it’s WrestleMania for me. Who ever is in front of me, I have to treat it as though it’s literally my last match, like I don’t have anything else to give. I think once you start doing that, then you start to string matches together and people start to take notice. One match at a time and literally give absolutely everything.
