MLW star Hammerstone was recently the guest on The Wrestling Inc. Daily. During the interview Hammerstone talked about the positives during the Pandemic Era.
“The big one for me is just the fact that I was able to heal a lot of injuries, and then as I’ve kind of gotten back into wrestling, honestly, this is so weird because I spent so many years of my life just on the go, non-stop every weekend. I was getting on planes or getting in cars, on hotels and everything stopped. I didn’t travel for months, and months and months, and then I got to the point where I started traveling again, I get travel anxiety. I get a little bit nervous, and I wasn’t scared.”
“I’m not one of those people who’s scared about the current situation, I would just think I was forgetting something, or feel a little bit homesick or not having my comforts, my gym, my own house, my kitchen, my dog [and] my girlfriend. I just feel anxious about it, and I’ve never gotten that before. What I’m trying to get at is moving forward, I’ve kind of gotten to a place now where I don’t feel like I have to constantly be taking every single booking that comes my way.
“I definitely feel I’ve gotten an appreciation for letting my body rest, letting my mind rest, and enjoying some time at home. I’m finally at a point now where I’m just as happy to see a weekend full of bookings as I am to see a weekend off of bookings. Moving forward, I think I’ve grown a little bit of an appreciation and respect for the fact that I’m over 30 years old now, and my body is not going to last forever. So I can’t be as reckless with it, and I need to appreciate the time I have to lay around in bed for a couple of extra hours.”
