Jake Crist Says Barbed Wire Massacre Was Too Violent For TV

OvE's Jake Crist recently spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio for an interview, which you can check out at this link. You can also see the interview above, and highlights below:

The Barbed Wire Massacre match between oVe & LAX:
"The violence and the brutality that all of us endured... All the crazy things that happened during the match - Me getting wrapped up to me spearing out of the ring, through a table, and onto my head. To Dave getting suplexed off the ladder. The big moments in that match were very, very, very painful. I have the scars to prove that. I look in the mirror and it kind of brings a smile to my face when I see them in the mirror knowing what I did."

The Barbed Wire Massacre match not airing on Impact and launching the Twitch channel:
"I do wish it had been able to have aired on national television. But, I think it was just a little too violent. Just like it was deemed - Too Violent for TV! That's why they had to switch it!"

His bouncy heel presence:
"It brings joy to me in an almost sick way. I'm anxious to get out there and fight. I want to fight! When I get those chains pulled off me and I see the green light, I go. That's why I bounce around like that. I've got the things that I want to do. It is kind of like being an anxious dog wanting to go out and pee on every fire hydrant."
