The following highlights were passed along to Fightful by Spencer Love.
Wrestling for Pro Wrestling Guerilla and DEFY Wrestling:
“(BOLA) was so crazy. Like I said earlier, I never had any desire to be an indie wrestler out of
like Vancouver, right? I was just happy to be an indie wrestler and I’ve just been like seeing
PWG over the years. I’m like, that’d be so much fun to do that, but I’m never going to have a

“The biggest thing for me is DEFY Wrestling. When that opened up – when that opened up, I

no. I’d probably have a closer chance to say yes if they asked me to do a trainer contract. I
love teaching. I love teaching wrestling, you know, and I get as much of a thrill out of teaching
wrestling as I do just wrestling in front of people.”
