Here are the highlights: (transcripts by WrestlingINC)
Jack Gallagher Bringing The Umbrella To The Ring Like Scurll Does:
“I hear he’s a massive Marty Scurll mark, he must be, he must just be a very big fan. I mean, at the end of the day, if you’re a young guy coming into a new company and you want to make a name for yourself and make an impression, you’re going to turn to the things that popular at the moment. I’ve pinched things from people I look up to, of course, like Roddy Piper and CM Punk and Terry Funk, those guys who I love. So of course it’s going to happen. So it’s flattering really, if anything.”
Scurll On Signing With Ring Of Honor:
“What excited me about Ring Of Honor, again, was that promotion is based, for the most part, on in-ring action and I felt like I, as this character, I feel like it has so much potential to do some really great things and touch people more than any pro wrestling match could and I really wanted a strong platform to do that on and I kind of felt like Ring Of Honor would give me that freedom, that creativity, and the platform to do so.”
His Thoughts On WWE’s UK Talent & The UK Championship Tournament:
“That, I think, was cool and great for the UK market and very cool for a lot of my good friends Pete Dunne, Trent Seven and Tyler Bate, three of my best mates. But for me, personally, I don’t think that would have been a fitting tournament for myself. I mean, without blowing too much smoke up my ass, I don’t want to be one of 16 guys or one of 82 guys. I like to do everything to the best and to the extreme and for me that’s a big part of why I came to Ring Of Honor. There other opportunities I could have done before coming to Ring Of Honor where I had to say, ‘I don’t want to be one of a group, I want to stand out by myself.’ Yeah and that was important for me. I thought Ring Of Honor didn’t have any British guys and I can come to Ring Of Honor and not only have the not seen any like me before, there’s not anyone that can talk like me, wrestle like me. See my character is pretty unique, so that was important for me, I thought I could stand out and that was more exciting for me.”
His Gimmicks Being Copied:
“If anything, it’s a challenge for me because at the end of the day. I’m more than a prop and I can always add props. It’s a challenge and I think that’s another reason why I’ve managed to stand out. Like, I said earlier, in Ring Of Honor, there’s nobody that wrestles like me because I make it a job of mine to make sure I’m completely different from everyone else, so as soon as I see someone else doing something of mine, I go, ‘okay, I won’t do that anymore.'”
