New IMPACT producer D’Lo Brown was a recent guest on the WINCLY show where the former WWE star spoke about his new position with the promotion, and how it all came about. Brown explains that taking on this new role is how he feels he can give back to the business and help the future starts of tomorrow.
It was a long process and upper management and I talked about it. It’s my way of giving back to the next generation of talent. I want to give my insight and experience and lend it to them with their creativity and we can create some special matches. Helping talent put their matches together and then calling in the [production truck] for the director. I’m just an overseer of talent’s matches.
He would then talk about the drastic changes that have occurred in wrestling since his time in the Attitude Era.
Obviously, everything evolves and when you look at sports like football and baseball, it’s different than what it was 20 years ago. Wrestling is a little different now because these guys are so elevated above the mat now. Everything’s high-flying when back in the day it was more ground and pound and very few high-flyers other than Luchadores. Now you’ve got guys like Michael Elgin and Brian Cage elevating and they’re super-heavyweights. That’s the big difference.
Brown later says that he’s worked with nearly everyone on the roster, from Tessa Blanchard to Brian Cage.
I try to get across the locker room. I’ve done stuff with everybody from Tessa to Elgin to Cage to The Rascalz to Jordynne Grace. It’s across the board and I don’t find myself with one set of talent as I don’t find that to be productive or fair to everyone else. Once creative comes down with the idea, you get it in the head and just try to convey what creative is trying to get across to the talent.
