Rocky Romero recently appeared as a guest on the Wrestling Perspective podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, the pro wrestling veteran talked about the Will Ospreay vs. Kenny Omega match, AEW and NJPW’s “The Forbidden Door” special event and more.
Below are some highlights of the interview where he touches on these topics along with his thoughts
Here’s how he’s proud of what he’s been able to accomplish in the past few years, including bringing Kenny Omega back to NJPW: “I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments I’ve had in the last few years. They’re big wins. I feel like bringing Kenny to the Tokyo Dome, you know, Kenny left to form AEW. There was a miscommunication between the New Japan office and Kenny and Kenny What the former (NJPW) president (Harold Mayes) wanted at the time though didn’t understand.”
How great was the Omega and Osprey matchup: “So to go back and help fix it, but to have a huge home run success with it. Omega vs. Ospreay, people are talking about it being the biggest match they’ve ever seen or one of them. Man, that’s something that I Helped put it together. I wasn’t the guy that went out there and hit a home run. Those guys were, but being a part of it was huge to put everything together.”
Last Summer’s Forbidden Door: “Putting together a Forbidden Door (PPV) with Tony (Khan), AEW and New Japan, two big companies with two different ways of watching wrestling and a bunch of stars I’ve never met or talked to and bringing them all together under one roof. It’s a Huge, huge home run.”
