Crazzy Steve is intrigued by the idea that people want to see him in the X-Division.
During a recent interview with WrestleZone, Crazzy Steve spoke about his foray into the IMPACT Wrestling X-Division. Crazzy Steve was part of a number one contender’s triple threat earlier this year, and was asked if he would consider making a regular run at it. Steve said that it’s not his favorite style, citing his affinity for other types of wrestling, but said he wouldn’t turn down the opportunity if it presented itself again.
“There’s a core group of the fanbase that definitely wants me in the X-Division hunt or to see me with the X-Division title, and it’s never really been a goal of mine despite—I guess you can prejudge that based off of my size that that would be a thing—but it really isn’t something that—If the opportunity were to come my way, I would take it with the best intentions in mind,” he explained, “but that is not something that motivates me as far as a professional wrestler is concerned. I would be just as happy, if not more happy, with just the storyline that carries on week to week that builds from pay-per-view to pay-per-view with a single character. That would do something for me. The idea of having the X-Division title is intriguing, and I don’t know where I would go with it, but I would be excited to have that opportunity just as much as anything else.”
“If I were to hold the X-Division title, it would be different in the sense of… when you think of the X-Division title matches in 2022, there’s a certain athleticism that the audience has a preconceived notion that will be involved with your Mike Baileys, your Ace Austins, your Chris Beys, you know, Laredo Kid, Trey Miguel, all these guys. These guys are far more athletic than I am for various reasons. They’re younger, they have 20/20 vision. I think if I was to hold it, it would be a different style or pace. I’m not saying I’m not athletic, obviously, my work speaks for itself,” Crazzy Steve noted, “but there’s a reason why I don’t do a lot of the things that those guys do because they do it better. There’s no way I can compete with that style. Again, that’s not to say that I wouldn’t take that opportunity and make my own thing, and it could be just as successful as any other ex-X-Division Champion. Those are my initial thoughts going into a scenario like that. I’m more of a story-based, moments kind of performer, at least that’s my bread and butter. I can do the X-Division style, it’s not my favorite style.”
Since the initial match, Crazzy Steve has primarily worked tag team matches with Decay stablemate Black Taurus.
