On Tuesday, Tyson Dux was interviewed on the Shining Wizards Podcast. You can check out some of the highlights down below.
Restrictions and limitations in the CWC: “We had agents. We had to deal with agents as well and plan it out. I know for me personally, I wanted to do a stalling suplex from the second rope and they completely scrapped that. They said no way can you do that. For whatever reason, Me & Zach were supossed to be 50/50 right up to the end and it was more of a showcase for Zach which is understandable, right? I get it. There weren’t major handcuffs put on, but they did want to steer the ship the way they want to steer it. So as we go along and get more progressive into it, they’re easing up on it. Tozawa is known for that snap german suplex with a hold for the pin and they were adamant on saying no absolutely no head drops at all and when push came to shove, Tozawa did put (Ken) Johnson directly on his bean for that snap German suplex. Its the same as anything. It’s wrestling politics. Either you kind of bite the bullet and ask for forgiveness later or you just do your stuff. I’m sure to God that burning hammer (Brian Kendrik’s) was not discussed. WWE doesn’t even let the tombstone fly other than the Undertaker.”
Smash Wrestling vs. Progress: “The one thing I think, before any of it-wrestling is so cool and so main stream now. Its a wonderful time to be in the business. How great is it that two companies that have started from ground zero, like bare bones and not even using like the typical indy theme or scenario where they use alot of names, and I don’t mean anything against anyone that does that, but I’m just saying like Progress & Smash Wrestling are both companies that haven’t used any outside bigger names. They’ve always drawn from within and used their talent. Progress is one of those companies that is just full of super raw talented people and I feel that way about Smash Wrestling on the same level. Progress is just a different scene and about getting your name out there. Both are well known on the social media scene as being the two greatest companies from opposite sides of the river because of raw talent. Guys that are just going at it because they love what they do and love where they work and I’ve been there since day one. I’m real excited about being a part of these Smash/Progress shows. This is not like two big companies like ROH & New Japan. This is two independent companies with a buzz like that and it blows my mind.”
