On the latest episode of Keepin it 100, Konnan discussed the recent incident with Psicosis II.
On his mindset during the confrontation:
“I think in that stupid mind of his he said, ‘f**k it. I gotta teach this guy a lesson somehow.’ I don’t know what he was thinking. The thing is, I show up to the f**king show. I’m alone. I’m getting out of a f**king van, and the next thing I see, he’s coming in with a whole bunch of guys, and a guy filming. I’m thinking, for a split second, this guy is probably trying to tape something for his website trying to get some buzz. He comes up immediately and escalates like, ‘f**k you man. You need to respect me. I’m the original Psicosis. You need to respect me like you respect him.’ I go, ‘chill out. What’s your f**king problem? What’s going on here?’ Now I see he’s with other guys, so I’m kind of looking around thinking, ‘is this guy actually gonna jump me with these guys?’ Well, I’m kind of looking out of my peripheral, and I’m trying to defuse the situation, and he slaps me. I’m thinking quick, for that split second, ‘bro, if I hit him, I know I’m gonna get jumped.’ I know I am. I just feel it.”
On thinking about hitting Psicosis II:
“My first reaction. If we were one-on-one. I would’ve punched the sh*t out of him. Even with a bad heart because that would’ve been my first reaction. I don’t know if you can notice in the video. There’s guys around him making sure nobody comes. There’s two guys on the outside, and I heard him when he told the guy with the camera, ‘OK. That’s enough.’ Then he puts the camera down. So I’m thinking at that moment, let me get out of here so I can get into the dressing room and I can get everybody out. That’s what I did. I went into the dressing room. When I went to the dressing room, a whole bunch of other wrestlers were coming out like, ‘what happened? What happened?’ By the time they went out, he was already gone. If you notice, nobody got in because they were worried that these thugs were gonna f**k them up.”
On what he believes Psicosis II was trying to get out of the situation:
“I did an interview with the press two hours after this incident. The video had already been put up. After the interview, they were like, ‘hey they were trying to sell us this video. The guy just wanted credit, and they wanted money. So this guy was trying to film a video, try to get paid, try [and] to get a buzz. I don’t know if he was trying to tape and edit it to where I hit him back and he was gonna sue me, or he [would] edit it in a way where I hit him [and] ‘Konnan looks like a punk-a** b**tch. I look good.’ Or maybe I hit him and everyone is trying to stop me and that’s what he puts up. Since no press would pay or put it up there, they’d just be dead out there on their own. What humongous mistake. What a humongous mistake he made.”
