Nick Gage doesn't need it right now, but he knows that when he does need a new mattress, he will have one that was gifted to him by David Arquette.
David Arquette’s journey in professional wrestling is one of the most colorful and unique stories of all time. Legitimately being in the record books alongside Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Randy Savage, and Bill Goldberg as a WCW World Heavyweight Champion, David Arquette was once seen as the sole representative of the lowest low in the history of pro wrestling.
Eventually, David Arquette made the decision to return to pro wrestling and in doing so, he embarked on a journey that would see him face Nick Gage in a deathmatch that would ultimately send David Arquette to the hospital.
Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Nick Gage revealed that in an effort to use the footage of Nick Gage and David Arquette in a deathmatch, David and his partner, Christina McLarty, who produced the documentary, send The King of the Deathmatches a king-size mattress.
"He called my house a couple of times for he wanted to use the footage for a documentary and I asked for some money and he told me he don't give money out for documentaries so I said ‘Alright, bye.’ Then he kept calling and then his wife called and I said ‘Well, What, are you gonna pay me?’ Why are you going to use my footage and I'm pretty sure you guys you're gonna make money off his documentary. So what they did is instead of that they gave me a gift and they sent me a king-size mattress. So that's what I got out of it.’”
Gage continued, “It's a little weird, you know? I still have not opened it to this day. It's still in my house. I like my bed right now so I want to keep it in the thing oh, so when my bed goes, I have a new king size mattress bed from David Arquette.”
Recently, a documentary was also produced on Nick Gage. Gage was the subject of the second episode of the third series of Dark Side of the Ring on VICE.
