Chris Van Vliet Not Opposed To Physical AEW Angles, But Wants To Leave It To The Professionals

New AEW interviewer Chris Van Vliet was recently interviewed by Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda, and spoke about several topics. You can see the full interview above, and submitted quotes below.

On whether we may see him in the ring at all in AEW:

IMPACT Tag Team And Knockouts Title Matches Set For IMPACT Sacrifice

Oh, God, I have no idea. I think we should leave that to the professionals, you know? I did train briefly when I was... It was my goal, it was my dream to be a pro wrestler. I trained when I was 20, I trained in college but something had to give. I couldn't be all in on wrestling and all in on going to college so something had to give and for me it was wrestling training. I figured that could wait till another time so I went in on the broadcasting and I've been really fortunate to have this great career - but I know how to take a bump. If you watch my interview with the Young Bucks, they Superkicked me, so I wouldn't be opposed to it but let's just say, let's leave that to the professionals.

 

On THAT interview with MJF:

I'd seen some other interviews, I'd of course seen his promos and his matches but nothing can really prepare you for Maxwell Jacob Friedman. People ask me all the time, "Well, what is he like off-camera?" Well, the thing is, there is no quote-unquote "off-camera" for MJF. That's who he is. What you see is what you get. I mean, room service interrupted our interview, he fed me an omelette, he threw toast at my head. Yeah, it's like something I've never experienced before in my life.

 

On who his dream guest would be:
Oh, Vince McMahon. How great would it interview with Vince McMahon be? Just as a wrestling fan, we all owe him an immense amount of gratitude. I'd love to just shake his hand and be like, "Thank you." You might not agree with everything that WWE does or has done but wrestling is what it is now because of Vince McMahon, so I'd love to start the conversation off there and then, if I had even just five minutes with him, I'd love to just dive into a whole bunch of different things.
