Rick Steiner's Son Being Trained By Johnny Swinger

WCW, TNA, WWE and ECW veteran Johnny Swinger was recently a guest on Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can see the full interview at this, and highlights below:

His stint in WWE:
"I just got lost in the shuffle there. They had other guys that they wanted to do things with. It was just such a big outfit that I just got lost. But, I don't regret going there because being a WWE wrestler is the best label you can have on your resume. (laughs) As of right now, there is no bigger value than saying you were a WWE wrestler. It is like saying you were in the NFL as opposed to the CFL. Until AEW gets bigger and even ECW and TNA, while they were national, they still weren't the WWF or even WCW."

The changes in wrestling during his 25 year career:
"I love talking shop. I really do. Like you said, it has changed. But, there are still a lot of things that are still the same. I think we kind of built on things before our era. Maybe things are faster now. The guys do more unbelievable moves. I remember wrestling Rey Mysterio in 1995 and I was like, "How are you able to do this stuff?" He just happened to be the first guy. Now, you could probably name 100 guys who can do better stuff than that. It is just more. We just do more. We still have an audience. You can't argue with it."

On training Rick Steiner's son:
"I'm getting ready to train Rick Steiner's son, Bronson. He's been wanting to do it for a few years now. He's finishing up college. He's going to be the next big thing. He really is. He's about 6'1... He was a state champion. He's playing football for KSU right now. He's going to be a stud, man!"
