WrestlingInc.com recently interviewed wrestler Matt Knicks, who discussed getting to work a match against Cody Rhodes in AEW on the Nov. 27 edition of Dynamite. Below are some highlights from WrestlingInc.com.

Matt Knicks on learning he’d wrestle Cody Rhodes: “It definitely came as a surprise to me. Going back a little bit, we had the opportunity to do extra work during All Out when they were here [in Chicago]. It was an awesome opportunity to be in that environment and being in the middle of history. When they were coming back to town for the TVs, I hit them up if they needed extra bodies. They said they would let me know. So, they talked to us and said they need some people. Myself and others were there and weren’t sure what was going. Then they were like, ‘Hey, we need you to wrestle Cody Rhodes. Is that cool?’ I’m like that’s totally fine. I think that can happen. I didn’t really know until about 4 o’clock that day that it was happening and it just blew my mind.”

Knicks on Cody Rhodes: “I’ve met him in passing when he came to the [Pro Wrestling Tees] store for any events or signings. We really didn’t know each other but he was super-awesome and didn’t make me feel nervous until I was standing out there and the pyro went off. I went, ‘Oh sh*t. This is real.'”

Knicks on not speaking to Cody Rhodes after the match: “No, we didn’t have a chance to talk that much afterwards. I thanked him again for the opportunity and I thanked anyone that would listen to me. I was shaking hands with random production crew members and they probably thought I was a weirdo.”

Knicks on what happened after the match: “It’s been weird because I’m just a guy. I haven’t even been wrestling that often over the last couple of months and just focused on running [Freelance]. After it happened, Robert Anthony was like let me see your phone, I bet it’s blowing up. I’ve gotten some texts from my family and stuff but nothing too crazy. … I woke up the next day with 150 text messages. The amount of positive responses of people just saying they are happy for me was really cool. It really meant a lot to me to see that people actually care.”

Knicks on being grateful for the opportunity: “It was definitely something special. If it leads to nothing more than just that night, I’m super grateful that I was even given that opportunity. It meant a lot to me but it meant a lot to the city as well and all the fans of Freelance. It was their voices getting heard.”

Alberto El Patron on Nacion Lucha Libre Offering Wrestlers Health Insurance, Says He Will Allow Wrestlers to Work for Other Promotions

Alberto El Patron on Nacion Lucha Libre Offering Wrestlers Health Insurance, Says He Will Allow Wrestlers to Work for Other Promotions

WrestlingInc.com recently interviewed Alberto El Patron ahead of his upcoming fight with Tito Ortiz in Combate Americas. El Patron also discussed his new wrestling promotion, Nacion Lucha Libre. Below are some highlights.

Alberto El Patron on offering insurance benefits in his promotion: “Because I use to work for a company that for many years that never gave me that privilege. They should be doing it. The pro-wrestling business is not fair. They call us independent contractors… if we’re independent contractors why do you not let your wrestlers go and wrestle in Mexico for CMLL or AAA or my lucha company Nacion Lucha Libre? So, you are an independent contractor just so you don’t have to give them the benefits and that’s not fair. If I was complaining about it for so many years and go and do the same in my organization… that would make me a liar, a hypocrite, and I’m not any of that. So, the moment that I started the company I started talking to health insurances and companies and organizations to help me get this and give this to all my employees.”

El Patron on not denying the wrestlers a chance to work for other promotions: “This is the thing. Before being a promoter, I’m a pro-wrestler and one of the boys. I’m not denying anyone the chance to go and work for other organizations. The other organizations are denying their talent to come to Nacion Lucha Libre because they’re scared. We are doing fantastic things. We’ve been in the business for only six months and we have fantastic ratings. Of course they’ve dropped a little bit because I’m not there [laughs]. I’m one of the favorite sons of Mexico. People want to see me. I’ve been focused on this fight. I haven’t been on TV for the last two months, and it’s going to be another month…and even a little bit more…to do my return to TV in Nacion Lucha Libre. But we’re doing fantastic…”

“I said it since day one…if they want to go to AAA, go to AAA. Just be polite and show your manners and call me and let me know you’re going somewhere else. I will never give you that bulls–t of, ‘Oh you cannot go there because that’s a different network.’ That’s just bullsh*t because you have a contract with the wrestling companies not with the networks. You can go anywhere you want just like I do. I’m in Univision. I’m on AXS. I’m in Televisa. I go anywhere I want. The only place where I have a contract to work for them and just be with them is Combate Americas. Even if I don’t have a contract…I don’t want to go anywhere else. This is my family. That man over there [Combate Americas founder Campbell McLaren]… he’s not just my boss. He’s my friend, a real friend. Someone that has been supporting me in the good times, bad times, worst times and I’m really happy to be apart of this organization.”
