Low-Ki On Who He Thinks Is The Toughest Person In The GFW Locker Room, Speaks On The Challenges Of Wrestling In A Suit – More


One of the most decorated wrestlers in the sport, Low-Ki, sat down with RealSport 101 as noted here on eWn. In part two of their interview, Low-Ki spoke on the challenges of wrestling in a suit, gives his take on the character “Suicide” and would he ever want to play the character. Low-Ki also gave his pick on whose the toughest person in the GFW locker room.

Here are the highlights:

Biggest Challenges Of Wrestling In A Suit:

“Whew, there’s quite some challenges wrestling in the suit based on mobility. With my style, I need a lot more freedom to move because I’m a lot more fluid in the ring. Having that mobility is a necessity for me to efficiently perform. Some of the disadvantages were the stitching; I can’t lift my arms after a certain point and even my legs, for having freedom of my hips, I need to have some stretching ability in the hip area. Originally, I had an outfit altered and that was for the Tokyo Dome. When I returned to Impact, that was a completely unaltered suit, so that match was done in a normal suit, that wasn’t done in an altered one. The pitfalls of that is you have to figure where the stitching limits you. A lot of the time it’s in the arms, a lot of the time it’s in the leg movements, you can only move your legs to a certain position. It’s just being aware of those limitations and then figuring out what you can do just within them, because once you hit that limitation, it will alter your performance and whatever’s altered in there will be seen out here.”

Would Low-Ki Like To Be Suicide:

“No, I have no interest in the character whatsoever. I gave it life by giving it the voice, I gave it life by giving it its mannerisms in the ring and its game-play. The game didn’t come out the way we had planned because it was rushed into final release. The intention behind all of us contributing to create the best video game possible fell short. We were disappointed in that, but as far as presenting the character that came from the video game, I was never a fan of it to begin with just by the name. You can’t market something like that into something positive in this realm because you have kids here. If you want to go into comic books, you can get away with it, it’s a different atmosphere. But in this realm, in pro wrestling, that’s the wrong atmosphere. We already have Homicide, we don’t need Suicide and that’s no disrespect to any of the people who’ve portrayed that character, but to me, it’s just a responsible marketing and responsible presentation. It was fun while it lasted and we’ve had plenty of real quality performers uphold the presentation, but as far as me being a part of its presentation and its continuance, no, I wouldn’t do that.”

Does He Hope That There Is A GFW Video Game On The Horizon:

“I do hope there’s a Global Force video game because now there’s a new roster, so that means if it’s possible to create a video game, it would be filled with new players. That’s always fun to have. We have different characters, different people of different abilities; especially guys like Desmond Xavier. Having him come in is something that raises the bar of performance. He reminds me a lot of the early stages of TNA when we got Red in there, Amazing Red. He’s young, quite fearless at this point because he’s never been hurt and you can usually tell by the performers. Right now, the world is his oyster, he has everything in front of him so, with having men like him on our roster, it makes things more exciting because the game-play is going to benefit from stuff like that.”

His Best Memories Being With “Triple X” & The “Beat Down Clan”:

“With Triple X, with Elix Skipper and Christopher Daniels in the early stages of TNA, it was so much fun. It was more like they were trying to keep me out of trouble because I’m a much more aggressive and ferocious presentation and personality and it was so much fun having them alongside of me because we knew what we wanted to do. We wanted to stand out, we wanted to be different to everyone else but we knew what we were capable of. We knew that if they just gave us the opportunity, we’d knock it out the park and that’s what we did. We had great match-ups against different teams, different individuals, even at one point we were against Dusty Rhodes and the Road Warriors. We ran the gauntlet of what was available at that time and we had a blast doing it.”

“As far as the Beat Down Clan, that was probably the most purest form of a collection of wrestlers that you’ll find. As individually, all of us our successful, but collectively we had all been friends for over 10 years with each other. This wasn’t just a typical grouping of random wrestlers, this was actually a very strong bond that we had formed. It wasn’t based off of just throwing something together and trying it out, this was something we were proud of putting together. We have the street credibility as opposed to the industry credibility and the street credibility that we could provide is something that is rarely marketed in any company anywhere. We were bringing a new element of street credibility and by the way that we were performing, we were drawing a lot of attention because we were believable. It wasn’t an act, because we’re not actors, we’re fighters, there’s a big difference. That’s what we had shown, it was a blast while it lasted.”

Toughest Person In The GFW Locker Room:

“Oof, that’s a tough one. The toughest person in the Impact locker room; we have a handful of guys. I think Crimson is one of them, the military, the former war soldier, he’s a veteran. That’s just a different mindset, a different…just a different attitude, a different level of mental attitude. Homicide, one of my first teachers, he began my training, mental toughness unlike any other that I’ve seen. Even some of the women. Gail, mentally tough. She, she came in with guys, that’s why, she didn’t come in all dainty and being treated like a girl. No, she had to earn hers. There are so many because there are many different experiences there but I think at the top right now, would be those three.”
