Zicky Dice believes that he deserves to be on television every Wednesday night.
Speaking on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, the former NWA World Television Champion said that he is feeling stuck at the moment. Although he has over 2 million views of Twitch, he has been a free agent since January 1st and is confident that no one on the independent circuit is providing the same level of entertainment as himself. He claimed that "you can't ignore money, and if you don't want me, tell me what it is." When asked who he is referring to, he replied with the following:
"You know, let's just go ahead and be completely honest, AEW. All Elite Wrestling. With everything I'm doing on the side with the creativeness, I don't want to have to give that up. It's hard for me to fall asleep at night. My mind -- have you ever been to Disneyland? Great time, right? Get a Churro. Have a good time. You rode Space Mountain. That's my brain with ideas constantly. Now I have to be able to control some of those, right?"
Continuing on, Zicky said that he is very proud of what he accomplished while with the NWA. He says that history repeats itself and that everyone who held the Television Title before him went on to mega-stardom, so it only stands to reason that the same would be the case for him. Here's what he said:
"I'm bound for mega-stardom. Whether THEY; Tony Khan, Cody [Rhodes], the EVPs, want to ignore me time and time again. I know they see the tags and it's making me sick. I don't know. All I know is that I'm this close, I'm one promo away from taking over."
Later on, when asked why he sees AEW as his ideal landing spot, Zicky said the following:
"What I love about it - it's not that I have friends there - it's still new. What I see is the asset I can be to a new company and how I can help it grow over the years and be able to say, 'hey, in 15 years, boom this is what we were able to accomplish.' That's what I look forward to, and a still being able to work with my friends, have that light schedule and being able to create on the side, do the Twitch thing, help with the videos on the side, do whatever."
