A story on why I want to become a Cruiserweight champion youtube.com shoot
"Today, I will speak about why I want to become a Cruiserweight champion. Since two thousand and seventeen, I've thought about if I retired today with the accomplishments I've done in the business, I would've regretted not attempting to become a Cruiserweight champion. So when the Junior Heavyweight Breakout tournament was announced for two thousand and eighteen, I weighed at two hundred and twenty pounds. I signed up, believing I was able to put myself on a weight cutting diet to reach two hundred and five pounds. Two weeks later, after all that weight I've cut in the two weeks I had time for, I weighed at two hundred and four pounds, achieving my goal of going for the Junior Heavyweight title.
Although I lost the tournament, it was because of my lack of experience in the division. So gradually, I had to adapt my wrestling style to do more high flying moves as I only knew powerhouse and technical moves at the time due to being a heavyweight all of my career. Now I can do many high flying moves because I kept practising to get better at high flying wrestling style. That's no longer an issue because I have attempted many high flying moves in the ring in nearly every match I've been in.
Once again I went for the Junior Heavyweight title over in Japan, and I did slightly better, getting through to the quarter-finals, but I lost to a man called Joseph White, using his finisher to capture the win. It took almost a year and a half for the Cruiserweight opportunity to open up because every company I'm in, they don't have a Cruiserweight or Junior Heavyweight title. I'm thankful for the opportunity I was allowed to sign up for in Action Wrestling, to accomplish the one thing I've never done in the wrestling business, winning the Cruiserweight title.
As you've heard, I weighed just a few pounds over before this tournament started, but once I put myself on a weight cutting diet, it was a piece of cake as I've successfully done that in four days. It's about fully committing yourself. If you want to do something so badly, like me being a cruiserweight wrestler and champion, you have to cut weight to get there. Slowly drop weight from time to time, and you'll eventually get there. That's my advice to any heavyweight wrestler who wants to attempt to be a Cruiserweight champion and also, find somewhere to learn to do high flying moves.
I also wanted to do something new as well as I was getting bored of being a heavyweight wrestler, being one of those former heavyweight wrestlers to move to the Cruiserweight division to do something new. Since I dropped a lot of pounds, I never felt better, and I became a better wrestler for it as well. However, this is a rumble for anyone willing to take part or better, willing to be a Cruiserweight wrestler to be a Cruiserweight champion.
I've sacrificed a lot to be in the Cruiserweight division, showing the world I can be successful as a Cruiserweight and when I retire in three years, I know I wouldn't regret years down the road becoming a Cruiserweight champion. Everyone is a threat in this match because as it's a rumble match, anybody can win. Nobody, not even Raging Dead, is a favourite to win a rumble. I know all of you have your reasons to be in the match, but my reason is far more significant than a lot of you.
Especially, I'm the oldest wrestler in this match. How many fifty-three-year-old wrestlers you know would sacrifice everything to be a Cruiserweight champion? Not many, until now. I will throw out whoever is left in the ring when I come out and stand tall as the new Cruiserweight champion because I can do it. Nobody has the hunger and desire to win as I do, and you will see what The Iceman is about. That's my story of why I want to be a Cruiserweight champion in any company, especially in Action Wrestling."
