Danny Limelight has made a huge impression since the fall of 2020, but he's staying humble.
After working the indies, GCW, AEW, UWN and NJPW USA, he's come across a variety of names. We asked him to say nice things about some of them for the latest SHOOTING SOFTLY.
"Oh, dude. That was the first Bullet Club guy I wrestled. He was great. A great opponent. I think that he really helped me really take my game to the next level as far as taking on an opponent that’s as experienced as himself."
"Locker room leader. One of the strongest men I’ve ever met in the world."
"I actually trained with Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus. What I will say is that team is one of the most innovative trios teams in professional wrestling."
"Hot upcoming star. Has a big future ahead of himself. Super super humble dude."
"Smart dude. Caring, giving, and he’s a team player."
"One of the biggest luchadores I know who still moves like he weighs my weight."
"First of all, congratulations to Tony Deppen and his wife on the birth of their beautiful child. Secondly, Tony Deppen is a wild man. He’s an amazing grappler, an amazing striker. One of the most down dudes I’ve ever met. I love that dude."
"Aw, dude. That kid has a big future. He’s the current Hollywood Heritage Champion on Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. I love Jordan. He’s humble and has a big future ahead of himself."
"I wrestled him one time in New York City. Young, dumb, and broke wild boy. I love his attitude. He’s a heavyweight now. Dude, he’s not a cruiserweight any more. Love Jordan Oliver. I want to wrestle him again."
"Delilah Doom and her partner Eli Everfly. An amazing intergender tag team. Super innovative. She’s a sweetheart. I love her. She’s great."
"That’s the machine, man. Who better than Cage? I love him. I love his family. They’re great people, man. Cage is a strong dude, and he’s Mr. Get-His-Shit-In, but he lets you get your shit in, too. He’s huge and he moves like he’s my size. He may even, if you look at it in the professional wrestling aspect, ‘Oh, you give too much,’ but in his mentality, he’s trying to show the world how good he is. It doesn’t make him look any better if he’s just beating dudes down in five / ten minutes, you know? Cage is awesome, man. Cage is the man. Who better?"
