Larry D may have parted ways with Impact Wrestling, but that doesn’t mean he said goodbye to the world of professional wrestling. In fact, Larry is working to introduce his love for pro wrestling to his home state of Kentucky.
The real-life Lawrence Jones recently sat down with Sean Sapp of Fightful to talk about the upcoming business. The former Impact Star is opening a wrestling-themed bar in his backyard of Cynthiana, because he wants wrestling fans to have a good time.
“It’s great. This here is something that my wife and I, and my brother and his wife, stumbled upon,” Larry recalled. “We took it, looked at it and said, ‘Can we do it?’ My brother lives in Florida and he’s moved up here. Yeah, we can do this.’
“We crunched some numbers where we were at and decided, ‘Man, what are we going to theme this?’ We got thinking later, there’s no wrestling themed anything here. So I wanted to use this as a place for you to come watch Monday night RAW, for you to watch IMPACT! You’re gonna be able to come watch Dynamite. You’re gonna be able to come talk wrestling.
“On Monday nights we’re gonna do a thing called Monday Night Wars from, say, six o’clock until eight o’clock or seven fifty you’re gonna just Family Feud style and we’re gonna ask wrestling questions, and then you’re gonna win all kinds of stuff at the end of the night. Just a good time. Then all sorts of wrestling events here with my school and other things. Then we’ll have some live music. Just, like I say, a really good time.”
Larry previously stated that he was open to working in promotions such as AEW, WWE, MLW, NWA, and GCW. We’ll have to wait and see how things play out for the big man in future. We’re certainly excited about this idea and believe that more businesses should have a pro wrestling theme, who’s with us?
