Source: Kayfabe Wrestling RadioJerry Lynn was recently interviewed by Kayfabe Wrestling Radio hosted by Alan Wojcik. Here are some highlights:
His match with Crowbar on Extreme Reunion and wrestling in front of the extreme fans: "For me, the most fun I've ever wrestling and the best time I've ever had, as far as work goes, was ECW. I've done a lot of the ECW reunion cards or homecomings, and all that, and it's always been just a blast and the ECW fans are just great to wrestle in front of. That give you a little more Umph, a little more motivation to go out there and just kill it. I don't know, no matter who I'm out there with, I always just want to go out there and have fun."
The situation at Extreme Reunion with Justin Credible: "It was a very stressful day, trying to figure out what we were going to do as far as what the match was going to be; who was going to be in the match? Justin has had he demons that he can't beat yet and hopefully he will; I don't want to hear someday that he's the next one we are going to have to bury. Cause he's a great guy, I love him to death; I've wrestled him I don't know how many times and had great matches with him. I always said if I ever turned heel one day, I hope I could be a good a heel as he is. So it was a very stressful day wondering if he was going to make it and then when it turned out he couldn't, then it was well, sometimes things work better. Crowbar was great, he stepped up to the plate and hit a home run; he came through for the company and did a great job."
On facing Homicide tonight at Extreme Rising: "I went after Devon (at Extreme Reunion), Devon moved and there he (Homicide) was. Anyone who's watched the old ECW or been any of those shows knows ringside is not a safe place to be. If you go to one of those shows, you just have to expect something is going to happen"
His pending retirement and what he'll miss: "One of the saddest parts about retiring is that there is a lot more that I want to learn. You learn mostly by being in the ring; I still learn every time I step foot in a ring, every single time I learn something (new). So, that's the thing I'm going to miss most. I really look forward to wrestling a lot of different guys for different reasons; like I've always enjoyed wrestling Homicide because sometimes, after a while you get kind of complacent and every time I've been in the ring with Homicide, he's pretty much gotten me psyched up and lit a fire under my ass and it's been very motivational for me."
Social Networking's effect on the business: "What I miss about the business is the mystique; when I was growing up, the few times I got to go see wrestling, you always wondered what was going on behind the curtain. Now, everyone knows what's going on behind the curtain. I'm just a firm believer in just keeping everything behind the curtain: go through the curtain and turn on your game face, come back and turn it off."
