Air Wolf discusses his future.
Fans who tuned into the MLW Saturday Night SuperFight pre-show on Nov. 2 got a taste of Air Wolf, a 20-year-old masked wrestler who took on Gino Medina. Despite the loss, Air Wolf had an impressive outing, showing off his diverse moveset, which featured a new twist on Rey Mysterio's 619.
“So, one thing with me is, I really like to be innovative," Air Wolf told Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling. "I like to show people things they haven’t necessarily seen before. So, if it’s a move I think I’ve seen before — something as signature as the 619 is obviously related to Rey Mysterio. Whenever you think of it, you think of Rey Mysterio. Not that I’m trying to not make them think of Rey Mysterio because usually I do call that move the Mysteri-low. But I definitely like to be innovative. I do a couple of other moves. Like I do a step-through Shooting Star Press that I call the ‘Lunar Eclipse’ so I really just try to innovate so that’ll help me stand out in the long run.”
Along with competing in MLW, Air Wolf has wrestled around the country, including a stop at AAW, one of the hottest Independent companies in the United States. Though he has only competed a handful of times in AAW, he hopes to become a regular fixture moving forward.
"AAW, I think of it kind of as an all-star game of the Midwest. There’s a lot of the top talent in the world coming to this one spot to compete and that’s a level where you wanna be at, especially for a guy like myself. You wanna always wrestle people that are better than you because that’s how you improve. So, going to AAW and getting the opportunity to wrestle these dudes is gonna help me improve tenfold, just like that," he said. "Dude, there’s so many places I want to go. It’s ridiculous to even list. Right now, I want to be a regular at AAW for sure. I definitely want to go to PWG. That’s one of my goals in the long run. Maybe Ring of Honor, I wanna go overseas for sure. I feel like getting to learn that technical side in the U.K. or going to Japan. That’s definitely on my list of things to do in wrestling.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Air Wolf discussed his time in F1RST Wrestling, relationship with Arik Cannon and more.
