During an interview with Wrestlezone, Stu Bennett revealed that he considered his promo skills to be his biggest strength as a wrestler. Here’s what he had to say:
I always knew that I was a capable talker. I always felt that as a fan growing up, the storylines and the personas, the promo work more than anything else, that’s what drew me in and in a lot of cases I think that’s what’s missing in the world of professional wrestling today, the lack of emphasis on those areas.
I think somebody like myself, and I do consider talking as my biggest strength in wrestling, I think that transitioning to acting in quite natural. I don’t think it’s too big of a jump for me to tweak the performances for film versus pro wrestling when you’re a confident talker. You can also see the way I’ve moved into commentating, working with NWA and doing commentary there. It’s something I enjoy and something I feel that I excel at and it’s something that I hope to get to do a lot more of going forward.
