Rich Bocchini spoke with a Orlando Sentinel about a series of wrestling topics. Here are some of a highlights:

Considering WWE:

“I had an talk with a Texans [in a NFL]. They didn’t sinecure me, yet they pronounced we was gifted adequate that we should be job big-league sports somewhere. It was my mother who nudged me to ask [Booker T] about WWE, since even yet it would meant relocating to Orlando, she could see we was miserable and indispensable a change.”

Working with Dusty Rhodes:

“I desired to collect Dusty’s mind on big-picture stuff. He gave me confidence. There were a lot of kids training promos who were frightened to death, yet if he saw we worked tough and had passion, he would get behind you. He devoted both me and Corey Graves (who came adult together) to do some-more and more, and that was huge.”

Independent wrestling compared to WWE:

“A lot of indie wrestling is a hipster throng that’s maybe into Star Wars, comics and qualification beer. I’m a tiny older, yet we cruise myself one of them. Every decent-sized city now has one qualification brewery, if not four, and people wish to support a internal brand. It feels like they can make it their own. That’s what indie wrestling is – it’s qualification wrestling. It caters to a fan that doesn’t wish a bigness of WWE, and a indies are tiny adequate that they can unequivocally listen to what people wish on a some-more personal level.”
