Bobby Fish is the guest on this week's "AEW Unrestricted" podcast. Fish talked about getting in the ring with Bryan Danielson after 10 years, the lessons he learned from Harley Race, wrestling in Japan, tips on proper mustache care, stories about the wrestling scene in upstate New York when he was getting started, his love for Bruce Lee, his MMA background and more.
Here are some highlights:
Bobby Fish talking about having the same ring entrance music he has now in AEW that he had when he was in ROH:
“It was a little bit of circumstance, maybe serendipitous in a way. I got really accustomed to that song and where I was. It was time for new music. Parting with that was difficult because I was just so accustomed to it. Obviously, I became accustomed to what we were doing there as well. When I knew this was coming up, I loved and continue to love Adam Cole’s new music. It’s so good. That being said, I was like, ‘I don’t know. Do I get new music? What’s it going to be? Blah, blah, blah.’ Anyway, to think then that Jeff Jones actually was his suggestion. I hadn’t listened to it in a while, but I do remember loving it. It just made sense, so we did it. As soon as the first chord ripped, it felt like, oh yes. It felt like putting on a good pair of jeans.”
Fish was asked how Tony Khan sold him the idea of going to AEW:
“Probably the fact that I didn’t feel like he was trying to sell it to me. He has such confidence and he’s such a fan of wrestling. You can feel that in the conversation. He’s excited. He’s motivated. He’s in a hurry. It was infectious. I had heard good things prior to the conversation, but it was all of those things I was expecting or suspecting seemed to be there, and it was quick, but it was genuine. I think that’s what probably sealed it for me.”
