Disco Inferno has been widely criticized for some of the negative comments that he has made towards women’s wrestling. Recently, he took to IMPACT’s Press Podcast with a change of tune on the work of women in the business. He praised many women’s wrestlers as being “good talkers” and more. Here are the highlights:
On The Appeal Of Women’s Wrestling:
A lot of these female performers are very strong on the mic. A lot of wrestling fans are attracted to verbal altercations. If you have two characters that could believably have a fight, you build up to a fight for people to come and watch it. That is how this business has always worked. That is another part of this (the women’s revolution) is that a lot of these girls are good talkers. Why not go against other good talkers on the show?
On Being Called Disco Inferno By Scarlett Bordeaux Recently On IMPACT:
That’s fine. I’m kind of married to it. In Impact, back in the Asylum years, I was Glenn Gilbertti in Sports Entertainment Xtreme. So, in the Impact universe, I’m still Glenn Gilbertti.
On His Former Bosses Backstage:
There are a lot of people that don’t like me. They don’t like me and they will come after me online and that, honestly, does not bother me. I just want to be myself. So, I was just surprised by the amount of positive reactions from the fans. I thought they were going to stay true to themselves because I say bad things about women’s wrestling, that they were going to bury me. I was very surprised that a lot of people put over the stuff that I’ve been doing (on Impact).
