One half of the MLW tag team champions, Richard Holliday, was recently interviewed by Wrestlezone. During the interview, he discussed his desire to entertain as well as his upcoming match against Brian Pillman Jr. at Go Professional Wrestling’s GO Big or GO Home. Here are the highlights:
On His Genetic Gifts:
I mean, it’s not my fault that I was born this way. I couldn’t just, you know, tell my mother before I was born, make sure I’m six-foot-three, super good looking, very articulate, and just have this immense presence. I couldn’t tell her that. I didn’t choose to be like this. So, is it a bit affluent? I guess, sure. But, it’s just the way that we are.
On Facing Brian Pillman Jr.:
Brian Pillman, I really thought I washed my hands with the Hart Foundation guys on this past episode of MLW. Like, I thought I was done, we finished this thing off in Dallas, we’ve been all over the country battling, the Dynasty and The Hart Foundation. And then here comes Go Pro Wrestling, and they go, ‘Oh we want a piece of this pie too.’ Well, you know what? I don’t want to serve a slice of this pie anymore. I’m very sick of dealing with The Hart Foundation, in specific, Brian Pillman Jr. I think he’s a complete idiot, and this Saturday I’m going to prove it once and again.
Have you looked at what’s on his head? Have you seen the way he dressed outside the ring? Have you tried to hold a conversation with Brian Pillman Jr.? Who cares about how passionate about wrestling you are. Have you talked to him about anything else other than that? Or his dad? No.
On Being A Showman:
The key thing is to leave them with the ultimate consumer experience. They bought their ticket, they are our consumer, they entered that arena. So, my big thing is to make sure that they leave just talking about Richard Holliday. ‘Man, that guy, there’s something about that Richard.’ Whether it’s my looks, my athleticism, whether it’s the way I operate in the ring. Whether it’s the way I talk in the microphone. It’s gonna be the ultimate consumer experience, it’s from a 360 point of view if that makes sense. So that’s what I want. I just want the consumers to leave and say, ‘He’s the guy.’
