Nick Gage is a Deathmatch Wrestling legend. Recently, he spoke to Sports Illustrated about a multitude of topics such as his recent Deathmatch with actor David Arquette for GCW. Gage said that he wasn’t a fan of how the match ended but that he did like the number of eyes that were on the match due to the backlash:

“It did get people talking, and that led to more people watching the match, so it goes both ways,” said Gage. “But as a professional and a performer, I didn’t like the way the ending went down.”

Regarding Deathmatches, Gage is very proud of the unique brand of wrestling he’s carved a niche in:

 

“Deep down, it’s an art form and a different style of wrestling,” said the 38-year-old Gage. “And it’s underground. There’s barely no rules. It’s just one man vs. another. Whoever wins, wins.”

“I consider myself a death match wrestler, it’s my job and my passion,” said Gage. “I take pride in being the top guy doing it in the U.S. I fell in love with it watching Cactus Jack and Terry Funk, I thought that was f——- badass…

Gage will be facing Josh Briggs for Beyond Wrestling on New Year’s Eve. Gage is very high on both Briggs, and Beyond as a promotion, saying the following:


 

“THERE WILL DEFINITELY BE BLOOD,” SAID GAGE. “AND I’M GOING TO DRINK IT.

“JOSH BRIGGS IS CLOSE TO 6’7” AND CLOSE TO 300 POUNDS, SO THAT’S A CHALLENGE FOR ME. THAT’S WHAT FUELS ME. I LOOK AT BRIGGS, AND HE’S YOUNG, FAST, AND STRONG, SO THAT’S A CHALLENGE FOR ME TO GO OUT THERE AND LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT I CAN STILL BEAT F——- GUYS LIKE THAT AND TEAR SH– UP.”

“BEYOND IS SUCH A GREAT COMPANY,” SAID GAGE. “THEY’RE BLOWING UP, AND THEY’RE GOOD PEOPLE OVER THERE, SO I’M PLANNING ON TAKING THAT PLACE OVER. I’M GOING TO MAKE IT MY HOUSE. I’M TAKING ON A GUY IN BRIGGS, WHO IS ON A WINNING STREAK, AND I’M GOING TO SMACK HIM AROUND, HIT HIM WITH WEAPONS, AND END THAT STREAK.”
