The Headbangers Talk About The Current Product, TNA, A WWE Return & More


Now you have everyone either trying to come out and be the Stone Cold character by, 'I'm a big badass and I can kick everyone's ass.' Everyone wears the same thing - trunks and boots. There's no different styles or get ups or outfits or gimmicks or whatever the hell you want to call it.

Glen: There's no individualism.

Chaz: Right, it's all kind of the same. You can see they're all going through the farm school. They're all coming out looking the same. That's the big difference when we had territories. Everyone had time to develop their own thing. That's just my opinion on what I watch now. It's pretty much everyone coming out, looking the same and going through the same thing. You got the guys who are trying to act like Stone Cold and you got the other guys who are trying to act like Rocky by just kicking out one liners.

WrestlingINC: If WWE or TNA wanted to bring you in but wanted to give you another gimmick - is that something you're open to?

Chaz: It would depend. It's definitely something we'd be open-minded about to listen to and talk about. The thing with the Headbanger gimmick is that it wasn't a gimmick. That was us. We were just goofballs who got in the ring, could wrestle and wanted to have fun and entertain people. That's what we wanted to do. That's what we're looking to do now. If that's marketable, if we think we can make it work then sure. That's who we are. Then again, we're open-minded. We're not stupid; we're open-minded.

WrestlingINC: What was competing at JCW's New Year's show like?

Glen: Tremendous. It was awesome. That's our crowd. People were partying, they were joking, they were laughing, some people were cheering us, some people were booing us. It was just a great time. Nothing's better than being in the ring where they're yelling at you or cheering you or spitting at you, throwing s--t at you. It doesn't matter; it's all fun.

WrestlingINC: Did it take some time to reform that chemistry teaming together again?

Chaz: It was like we were in the ring last week.

Glen: That's the bizarre part about the whole thing. We didn't tag for 10 years and when we get back in, it was like it was never gone.

WrestlingINC: What are your thoughts on TNA?

Glen: I don't watch it that much so I don't know. TNA's one of those shows where I flip it on and if something catches my eye I'll watch it. If not then I keep going. I don't have a big opinion on it.

WrestlingINC: It does seem like they a little more of an emphasis on their tag team division, though.

Chaz: That's exactly what I was just going to say. They do put some kind of emphasis on the tag team division. That's what kind of attracts me a little bit, watching some of the guys and stuff like that. We still believe in the old fashion way of tag team. I don't know if this is the old school way of thinking about it but growing up everyone watched Demolition, the Samoan, the Hart Foundation.

Glen: Those were all legit tag teams and now it seems to be the way of just two guys together.

Glen: Now they're out there shooting their videos, challenging two guys to get together and get a fancy name together. They're challenging because they don't have any challengers.
