Jimmy Havoc On MLW’s Resurgence, His Style Transitioning & More!

Harry Kettle of Wrestlezone recently interviewed British wrestling star Jimmy Havoc. Here are some highlights.

On competing for MLW and their resurgence:

“It’s really cool. MLW is one of the promotions I watched when I was a teenager and stuff, and the fact that they’re back is amazing. Getting to wrestle for them is really cool. I think Court has a good vision of what they want from their product, their TV deal was a big deal, and the YouTube views are getting really good. They’ve got quite a varied roster of very different people. Everyone is pulling their weight to make the product a success.”

On his journey through British wrestling:

“When the Progress title thing happened for me, that was when things started to get real good. That lasted about two or three years then you had Zack, Marty and Ospreay going off to Japan. ICW started to get real big, Rev Pro started to get big, and that on the backs of a few of us. I think the world started to pay notice to us. It used to be ‘what American imports can we fly over here to sell tickets’, and the last few years we haven’t had to have imports.”

On his style transitioning over to America:

“It’s not CZW, so we’re not going that far with it like with glass and stuff. The thing with MLW is that it’s more about characters. With the TV format we’ve got the promos, backstage skits – so there’s a lot more investment in that. People want to see the characters face off as opposed to how are they going to murder themselves.”

On the future:

“As long as I’m enjoying it, that’s all I care about. If it all ended tomorrow I can look back and thing you know what, I have no regrets. I’ve managed to travel the world, I’ve made money literally all over the world, I’m entertaining people and I’m doing what I enjoy.”
