Adam Pearce on not signing with WCW and being a coach at the WWE Performance Center

WWE Performance Center coach and longtime wrestler Adam Pearce spoke with about signing with the company last year and more. Here are the highlights.

On deciding to reach out to WWE: “I reached out, honestly, just to see,” he said. “If you don’t ask the question, you don’t get the answer. I didn’t want to be 50 and say that I hadn’t reached out and wished I had.”

On his role at the center: “I focus almost entirely on psychology, and the nuanced things that beginners aren’t ready for and intermediates aren’t necessarily diving into yet because they’re refining their mechanics.”

On not signing with WCW in 1999: “I just wasn’t mature enough at that point to pack up and move to Atlanta,” he said. “Plus, I was engaged at the time, and the family of my bride-to-be, who I didn’t end up marrying, was completely against the idea of their daughter moving from Chicago to Atlanta with some punk wrestler kid. It wasn’t the right time, so I declined politely.”

Pearce also talked about Norman Smiley, his time on the independents and more. You can read the entire interview here.
