Anthony Ogogo recently appeared on Insight with Chris Van Vliet to talk about his infamous feud with The American Nightmare. He also gave his thoughts on the weigh-in segment between the two.

“F**king dogs**t mate. Dogs**t. “So Cody said to me ‘We’re gonna do a weigh-in.’ ‘Oh cool. What’s going to happen?’ And Cody, Cody’s brilliant. He’s brilliant at what he does and has a great mind for it. He’s a really good coach, a great promo coach.

“He was like ‘We can do a weigh-in.’ I asked ‘Who’s getting knocked out? What are we going to do?’ ‘It’s a weigh-in. We’re not going to touch.’ I was like ‘Oh.’ I’ve watched enough wrestling to know that’s a bit drab and a bit s–t. He was like ‘Nah, it’s going to be cool.’ Listen, this was my third week on TV. I was gonna show up, work hard, do as I’m told.”

Anthony Ogogo is currently part of The Factor on AEW. Most recently, he appeared on Dynamite during QT Marshal’s segment with Ricky Starks. Keep reading Ringside News for more.
