Abyss was recently interviewed by Main Event Radio ahead of his Slammiversary match. You can check out the full interview at this link, and submitted highlights below:
Teaming with Hulk Hogan to Face Ric Flair and AJ Styles
“That was a big honor. One of those times where I had to pinch myself for a second. Being in the ring with two of the all-time legends of the business in Hulk [Hogan] and Ric [Flair] and one of the future legends in AJ Styles.”
Joseph Park Returning at “Slammiversary 2017”
“Joseph Park is a good guy. He’s a clumsy guy but he holds a special place in my heart for sure. It is an odd match-up. I’m excited to team with probably my best friend in the wrestling business in Jeremy Borash. I’ve known him for a long time, since 1999, and we have a dear friendship. Scott Steiner is Scott Steiner. We may be in over our heads. It’ll be an entertaining spectacle as long as we can stay out of the clinches of one Scott Steiner. One of the most unique performers ever and he has the gift of gab. He’s an angry man. We’re going to do our best and hopefully get it together in these next few weeks and be ready for July 2nd.”
Dixie Carter Potentially Going Into the Hall of Fame
“I truly believe that she deserving to go in the Hall of Fame. She ran a company for 15 years and established its history. Gave us all a platform to become an international company, the merchandising, action figures, the SpikeTV deal…all that stuff was under her watch. I know she takes a beating in the media but they don’t know all the work she put in and the passion that she had.”
