X-Pac 1, 2, 360 Recap – Special Guest Tony Khan, Development of AEW, Has AEW Signed Goldberg? More!
X-Pac is joined on today’s show by comedian Mike Lawrence.
X-Pac opens today’s show by discussing a recent controversial spot between Priscilla Kelly and Tuna at an indie event. Kelly reached into her trunks during the match and pulled out a tampon and later shoved it in Tuna’s mouth. The clip went viral and Kelly defended it.
X-Pac says the spot wasn’t really his cup of tea, but he didn’t get bent out shape because of it. After watching the video he quickly realized it was an adult-themed wrestling show, and he thinks the controversy surrounding the spot was completely blown out of proportion.
Some veterans of the wrestling business have critiqued the spot, but Lawrence points out that the form of wrestling that veterans such as Jim Ross and Jim Cornette speak about doesn’t fully exist anymore, and that’s not a bad thing.
X-Pac says he was very impressed by some of the athlete achievements during last weekend’s Wrestle Kingdom event. Lawrence asks X-Pac if he thinks he could get in the ring with those guys today and X-Pac says, “F*** no!” He says he’s happy to be one of the many pioneers of that style, but these new guys have taken it to a whole new level.
