Dragon Gate USA booker Gabe Sapolsky did an interview with the Tomb of the Opinionated blog. In it he discussed his time in ECW, what wrestling shows he grew up watching and a lot more. It was a nice chat, and well worth your time to check out.
Below are some highlights of the interview
Gabe on what wrestling shows he watched as a kid: "Yes, I was a big fan growing up, especially of NWA on TBS and World Class."
Gabe on his duties during his ECW run: "I played absolutely no role in the booking. I just kept my mouth shut and ears opened and tried to learn as much as I could. I did any job that was asked from handing out flyers to handling tickets to answering the phone at the office to running to the martial arts store and getting Sandman his Singapore cane! I did anything that was asked of me."
Gabe on who he thinks will break out of DGUSA: "I think everyone will just grow and become bigger stars as DGUSA grows. I mean they are all already huge stars in Japan. As the American audience sees more and more of them they will just become bigger stars here. I really think that includes the entire Japanese roster. I think on the American side we have really developed a core roster and we are seeing many of these talents turn that corner right before our eyes like Jon Moxley, Ricochet, Johnny Gargano, Chuck Taylor, Brodie Lee, Arik Cannon, Drake Younger just to name a few. Then we have guys like Jimmy Jacobs, the team of Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw, Gran Akuma, Hallowicked, all who are already established. Last weekend in Chicago and Milwaukee was a particularly huge weekend for Moxley and Ricochet. They are really becoming stars and turning that corner right before our eyes. This is my favorite thing in wrestling. I can't wait for people to see the "Untouchable" pay-per-view in November to see Ricochet really become the man."
