D'Lo Brown is one of the most experienced producers in IMPACT Wrestling today and now, he's opening up about his favorite talents to work with behind-the-scenes.
Speaking with talkSPORT, Brown named several top IMPACT stars as pleasures to work with from several of IMPACT’s divisions.
“I can tell you who I really like working with,” Brown began. “Anytime I’m involved with Sami Callihan, Tessa Blanchard, Eddie Edwards, Michael Elgin, The North, people like Rich Swann and Willie Mack – it’s fun to have that collaborative process, put together ideas and see them go out there and they become really great matches. That’s really fun for me. We have such an incredible roster, a really talented roster here at IMPACT. Anytime I get to work with any of them, I enjoy it immensely.”
Continuing on, D'Lo Brown also talked about superstars that have the "it factor." D’Lo would liken this to the early days of The Rock saying that if anybody claimed they knew where the rock was going, then they are lying to you because sometimes the magical components just come together at the perfect place at the perfect time.
“If anybody says they saw what The Rock was going to become, they’re lying to you. It was a perfect combination of his charisma, timing and a thousand other things that allowed him to become the star that he became,” D’Lo said. “But, the first step in that was his preparation, his readiness to be a star. He always had that, you could see that a mile away. Now, if we spin forward to IMPACT, when I look at certain individuals on our roster and I go ‘Yeah, they’ve got IT’. It’s there. We’re just trying to tap into it and break it out. Yes, it allows you to get a better understanding of what it takes to be that person that the world focuses on. It allows you to see what it takes to connect with the people. Not that it’s easily teachable – if it was, everyone would be a star – but it allows you to see it in different people and get it out of them.”
