Former MLW Star Richard Holliday had a conversation with Fightful on a number of topics including the rumors of WWE wanting to bring him in or any other major promotion for that matter like AEW and IMPACT.
Holliday said, “Ultimately, I’m not in the board rooms, right? In any company. That’s WWE, AEW, anywhere—IMPACT!—it doesn’t matter. I’m not in any of these board rooms. I’m just simply me. The best thing I can do on a day to day basis is be the best version of Richard Holliday that I can be every single day. Now what that means is, ultimately, now that I am a ‘free agent’—which is new to me, I haven’t been a free agent in this business in four and a half years. So it’s kind of fun to flex that muscle a little bit—all I can do is just be the best version of me.”
Holliday also talked about how whether or not he is brought in any of the major promotions, he is still confident in his abilities and what he can offer to any product from a talent standpoint.
“Now what that means for all these companies, if they do have interest in me or if they don’t, is where do I fit into the puzzle? Does it make sense to bring me in now? Does it make sense to not bring me in? What does make sense? I don’t know. I have a pretty firm grasp of what I offer to this business and what I can offer to any product from a talent standpoint. So I’m confident in my ability, I’m very poised for the future and whatever happens happens. I think speculation is probably one of the most fun things about wrestling, seeing people on Twitter or Instagram being like, ‘I hope Richard pops up here’ or ‘I hope he pops up there,’ ‘He was here,’ ‘He was there.’ Nobody really knows at the end of the day, but the speculatory tweets and stuff like that are always fun to view and watch and think about.”
