WWE compared to Nickelback; Impact almost shut down?
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/11/2018 at 05:36 PM


In an interview with WrestlingInc.com, indy wrestling star Chuck Taylor commented on WWE:

"I like punk rock music and to me WWE is Nickelback. I know they've got loads of fans but that's not cool to me," said Taylor. "I want to go to a small venue in south Philadelphia and I want to watch a punk band play in front of 400 people that want to be there, that love it, that love every song. That's cool to me. I don't like mass-marketed stuff."

"I think it's like anything else in wrestling: when it's bad, it's really bad. Some of their stuff is borderline unwatchable and that's coming from a lifelong wrestling fan," said Taylor. "But when they do something right with their production and everything else, it's fantastic. That's not me kissing their butts trying to get a job because they'd never sign me in a million years."

"Before, if you weren't in WWE, there were like seven guys in wrestling that were making a living and not needing an extra job. Now there's so many guys that can do it. I don't necessarily need to be rich, just let me pay my bills."


- During an appearance on Dave Penzer's podcast, Anthem Sports President Ed Nordholm admitted that Impact Wrestling almost shut down last year:

I would say that when we got into August & September of 2017, I think that was probably coming into our darkest period and we had to make some hard decisions on whether we could or should carry on.
