Juice Robinson took part in a media scrub after the NJPW G1 Climax Press Conference. During the scrum, he discussed parallels between himself and Jon Moxley as well as the advice he has for wrestlers that are unhappy with their current situation. Here are the highlights:
On Being Able To Relate To Jon Moxley:
I didn’t hear his podcast with Jericho and I haven’t seen really any of his interviews besides the one right after our match. I think, I kind of said it earlier, when you’re working somewhere and you’re not happy, and you gotta leave to be happy, he did that, I can relate to it, we’re relatable in a lot of ways. He obviously did it from a very, way higher of a level, but in the same way, I kind of did the same thing.
On Advice He’d Give To Unhappy Wrestlers:
Get out of there, don’t work there. If you’re not having a good time, because wrestling is such a fun thing. And if you’re doing pro-wrestling and the banner that you’re doing it under makes you stay awake and not get sleep at night because it pisses you off, get the hell out of there and go work for somebody else. Unless money is your thing and you need to make a certain amount, I dunno, money was never my thing in this, I want to do it because it was fun, and I think anybody that has that feeling should leave, and I think you’ve seen it a lot more lately, people are just like, ‘Wait, what? Why do I have to do this and be pissed off?’ You don’t. So get on out and do your thing.
On If He Bothers Him That Moxley Came To NJPW:
Actually the kind of stuff that bothers me is constantly answering asking questions about CJ Parker, that’s kind of more what gets on my nerves, than a guy coming here that, I think, ya know, just really loves wrestling and was upset where he was, and I can kind of relate, and he needed a fresh start and he needed to be free, and now he is.
On If He’ll Wrestle For Ring Of Honor Again:
I never told anyone I was never doing Ring of Honor ever again. I’m sure I’ll be there, I don’t know when though. We’re in the dog days right now of the G1, then before you know it it’s world tag league, and it’s only going to get busier and busier as far as just New Japan dates go. I’m only one man. I’m sure I’ll be there again.
