Moose On Wanting To Show More Of His Personality

Moose On Wanting To Show More Of His Personality

During an interview with Hard To Kill Media, Moose discussed the evolution of his character and wanting to show off more of his personality. Here are the highlights:

On The Evolution Of His Character:

When I first started with Impact, I was comfortable with what I was doing before. It was easy and it got to a point where I talked to some of my mentors and they told me if I wanted to take that next step then this is what I needed to do. I have so much more to give to pro wrestling that the old Moose wasn’t doing. My new attitude just shows how much charisma I have. I get to talk a bit more on the mic and it shows my presence in the ring and my swag. So I felt like it was the right move for me to make to grow as a professional wrestler.

On Wanting To Show More Personality:

I think me, Quinn Ojinnaka which is my real name, is a really fun guy to be around. I’m a fun guy like Kawhi Leonard says. People like to be around me and I’m charismatic. I felt like when I first got to Impact I was trying to be this tough guy and I’ll kick your ass. I feel like wrestling in 2020, everybody is a tough guy. One thing I’ve been doing lately is going to the archives and watching old wrestling from 1990-92 and there wasn’t a lot of tough guys. There were a lot more characters and there’s not a lot of character-driven guys in wrestling in 2020. That’s one thing I told myself – I don’t wanna be a tough guy anymore. I don’t wanna be an ass-kicker or a, ‘Oh look at me, I’ll powerbomb you.’ I don’t wanna be that guy. I wanna show personality and be fun and show swagger. That’s pretty much what my whole evolution was.

On His 2020 Goals:

Every time I step into the ring I want to be better than the last time I was out there. That’s my mindset right now. I know there’s guys that will go, ‘Oh, I wanna be champion this year.’ I don’t like making those kinda goals because I feel that if you’re the world champion and a crappy, sh*tty wrestler, then what does that do? Every time I go out there I wanna be a better wrestler and performer in the ring than I was prior. So, that’s always my goal.
