Brody King sat down with Denise Salcedo this week to talk about maximizing his minutes on TV, the collaboration of The House of Black, and how he feels about Tony Khan purchasing ROH.

Brody King talking about maximizing his minutes on TV:

"I think there's 120-something wrestlers on the roster. Obviously, if you break that down in minutes of TV, there's not a lot. I think that the best part about House of Black specifically, is Malakai has such experience with TV time. In WWE, he got to learn from a lot of great people there that gave him so much knowledge about how to make the most out of something. I feel like he's so good at that, especially at AEW," King said.

"If we're given a 60 second promo, this promo can feel like it was so much more in depth than just a minute long. I feel like that's where you need to really succeed. If you're given a four minute match, you need to make people remember that four minute match. If you're given a 60 promo, you have to give it your all in that promo and not just stand in front of a backdrop and just say words. You have to make people feel it, remember it, and make them want more."

King was asked if the ideas for The House of Black are a collaboration of the members:

"Everything with the House of Black is very much a collaboration. Usually one of us will come to the table with an idea. Then we all just kind of riff off of that and make something out of that. Whether it be a segment, or a promo, or a match, like what do you guys think we should do? Everyone kind of gives what they think they should do. Then we take pieces from all of it and make the whole thing. So it's really cool, because it doesn't feel like one person is in control of the whole thing."

"Obviously, Malakai has a lot more experience in wrestling to guide all of our ideas. I feel like without him, it might not be as polished as it would be."

On Tony Khan purchasing Ring of Honor:

"There were a lot of really talented people in Ring of Honor and I felt like we had something that we could have done so much more with. But we were just, I don't want to say held back, but it was just so hard to get the people in charge to want to listen to us because we felt like we had good ideas to get more buzz or to get more people to watch the product, and it just wasn't translating. They felt like nothing was wrong and that they were just going to keep doing what they're doing. Tony very much likes to listen to the fans.”
