Zicky Dice has had his ups and downs in the world of professional wrestling. Zicky wanted to join AEW but Tony Khan decided against giving him a full-time contract. Zicky made appearances for the promotion on its YouTube shows.
Zicky was a guest on Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore podcast this week. Zicky talked about growing up as a wrestling fan, his rock band and how he convinced Seth Rollins to train him.
“There was one night we were in Nashville and I was acting like a complete jerk off on stage. I was getting the crowd booing me in between songs, but they were singing along. The whole room was singing along and the tour manager was like, ‘Hey, I got to talk to you guys after your set.’ I was like, ‘I’m pretty sure we’re getting kicked off the tour.’
“Wrestling is very similar to music right there. If you’re the opening band, you don’t want to disrespect the headliners. He pulled me aside and said, ‘Listen, I know how much you love professional wrestling. I know how agile you are. You have this oozing charisma. I think that you need to become a professional wrestler,’” Zicky said.
“So I text Seth Rollins at that moment and I said, ‘Hey, I want you to train me. He says, ‘Are you serious?’ I said, ‘I’m going to be better than you are one day.’ He said, ‘I’ll see you on May 1st.’ I wrapped up that tour, packed up everything, and left.”
Zicky is currently signed to IMPACT Wrestling. Prior to signing with IMPACT, Zicky worked for NWA and was the company’s World Television Champion during the pandemic era.
