Davey Richards interview in Power Slam #217

There's a decent interview with Davey Richards in the latest issue of Power Slam magazine. I'm not a fan of the guy at all, but he comes across well here. Some highlights:

- says the UK has a better crop of upcoming talent than the US ("that's not a knock on the US: it shows how highly I rate the UK talent.")

- talks about inadvertently winning the FutureShock title by legit knocking out Jack Gallagher with a head kick after Gallagher had stiffed him with a headbutt

- doesn't think Kevin Steen follows the ROH World title lineage of Joe, Danielson, Ki, Black, Edwards & himself

- says he would rather wrestle for 45mins at a grueling pace than do a 10 minute hardcore match ("those matches scare me.... I'm not a stunt man at all")

- thinks ROH has gotten away from the in-ring product being at the forefront of things & should go back to focusing on wrestling

- bigs up Kyle Matthews, Chip Day, Shane Hollister, Silas Young, Chase Owens, Jack Gallagher, Stixx, Noam Dar, Lionheart, Dave Mastiff & Zack Sabre

- talks about turning down this month's Noah tour & not being able to wrestle abroad for the next year due to having to finish paramedic school

- doesn't see himself working the indies anymore once his ROH contract expires in August 2013

- mentions wanting to move to England for 6-12 months & then maybe WWE or TNA or Japan

Re: Davey Richards interview in Power Slam #217

I have it to read, looking forward to it. As well as the 6-page drugs article in there.

I'm in two minds about Davey. I like him, but he just comes across as a dick sometimes to me and I can't say why.

Has anyone downloaded Power Slam online yet? I haven't bothered. It's the one magazine I buy a hardcopy of every month and if it becomes available on XWT I wont be able to help myself, haha.

"Kyle Matthews, Chip Day, Shane Hollister, Silas Young, Chase Owens"

All these guys should be in ROH, and really, none of them are doing anything but working their local indies.
