“I’ll simply put it this manner: Scott D’Amore and the folks within the workplace, they notice the place we’re,” Penzer mentioned. “AXS TV isn’t a available channel. They’re hoping to get larger protection. Earlier than it was simply music, and it was one in every of my favourite channels mockingly sufficient as a result of I’m an enormous dwell music fan. Three quarters of my DVR is saved stuff from AXS TV, rock live shows and nation stuff.
“I used to be very acquainted with AXS, however you realize, most accommodations you go to don’t have AXS TV and quite a lot of cable stations don’t have AXS TV. They’re bringing in Invicta and increasing with a few of the Influence stuff.”

“We’re not on TNT in prime time. We’re not! We don’t have Sting and JR and Tony Schiavone and Dustin and Cody and the Younger Bucks and Miro. These are just some. They’ve all this younger expertise, these are simply the established ones,” Penzer mentioned. “We’re in a unique place. I lay that every one out as a result of folks say it’s not a good commerce, however in my view it doesn’t need to be.”

“Kenny Omega, one of many high, hottest, most well-known, most well-known wrestlers worldwide, possibly the best expertise going proper now in wrestling, is our world champion!” Penzer mentioned. “He’s on our present each week. How might that be a foul factor? It might solely be a superb factor. It might solely assist. It will not be an equal partnership in our guys getting featured, their guys getting featured, our identify being talked about, their identify being talked about. It doesn’t need to be. Kenny Omega’s our world champion! I’ll depart it at that. Anyone that doesn’t see the worth in that, I respect your opinion, however I respectfully disagree.”

“I learn what you learn, and nothing was talked about on the Influence tapings that we simply had,” Penzer mentioned. “There was not like a crew assembly about it. No person pulled me apart. I heard about it when folks began murmuring on the web about it. It’s what it’s. I might be mendacity if I mentioned that I had any perception into what’s occurred, what did occur, why it occurred. I’m simply glad to be there. Like once I mentioned I wouldn’t have needed to know who was popping out the Nitro curtain, I don’t wish to know.”
