AEW started with a mission to become a legitimate pro wrestling alternative. Every week they have a new opportunity to show fans what they are capable of and sometimes this includes using some new ideas.
Jimmy Havoc works for both AEW and MLW under contract. He recently spoke to Wrestling Inc about the similarities between the two companies. They are both open to accepting new ideas and letting wrestlers develop their characters. That also includes sometimes turning an idea down if it doesn’t fit.
“They’re pretty open to ideas, the same as AEW. They’re very open to us coming up with creative which I think is great. It’s much better when we’re allowed to be ourselves and have our personalities shine through than being forced to doing stuff that doesn’t fit our characters.”
“I’ve been there [MLW] for a couple of years now and I’ve always enjoyed it. The guys don’t remember Alex Greenfield but he’s left now. But I really enjoyed working with him.”
Jimmy Havoc is bound to have plenty of violent battles in an AEW ring for a long time to come. In the meantime, he’s still under contract with both AEW and MLW so he can spread his unique brand of brutality on two televised promotions.
