King Mo Interview :D

Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald recently spoke with MMA star King Mo, who has signed with TNA. Here are some highlights:

Working for Bellator and TNA on Spike:
"After what happened with me and Strikeforce, the Bellator deal came. Then they came to me saying, 'We have an even better deal.' So they called me two days after that with [TNA President] Dixie Carter on the phone saying she wanted me to do TNA Impact Wrestling as well. I was cool with that when I heard what they were offering me. Now I'm all aboard. I got two jobs now with Spike TV. I'm going to work for TNA as much as I can, but if I have a fight coming up and I'm training, then you won't see me as much on there. My plan is to be on TNA two or three times a month or whenever they can book me."

His TNA debut:
"I'm going to put it like this. I'm going to be on TV sooner than you all think. I'm very excited. I can't wait to take my first chair shot. I can't wait until I take my first bump. I can't wait until I pin somebody. I can't wait until I get pinned and being thrown headfirst in the turnbuckle. I'm just excited to get the opportunity to entertain. I entertain in MMA, and now I get to entertain in TNA Wrestling."

Being a fan of wrestling:
"When I was growing up, I enjoyed Mid-South Wrestling, the NWA and WCW. I was more in that line. WWE was cool, but I was more of a WCW fan. I loved the Four Horsemen and Sting. I just saw Sting, and I almost fainted. He is bigger than I thought. He is like 6-4 or 6-5. I like Kurt Angle, James Storm and AJ Styles. Then I throw it back to the old school of watching Arn Anderson. I like the solid style wrestling. I watch a lot of wrestling. TNA has an immense pool of talent here. I watch it every Thursday [Spike TV]. The people here are no joke. I'm just hoping that I can blend in and stand out when I'm given the proper opportunity to."

Working on his moves and persona:
"One is a submission called the Royal Pain, and the other is going to be an impact move called the Royal Flush. It's like this. I'm an MMA fighter, King Mo. You don't see King Mo doing high-flying moves in the cage, do you? So don't expect it in the squared circle."[/url]

Pretty cool Interview.Shit gonna get real when he's reveal as the leader of the Aces&Eights :eek: lol

Yeah I'm looking forward to this, if he can learn to work good in the ring with a fighting background I could see him in a high profile submissions match with Angle or Joe come BFG 2013, might be able to really draw some outside fans again and have something that is actually "cool" for people in the 18-35 demographic, which wrestling really hasn't been able to do in a long time.

It'll be interesting to see how he does.

I just don't see this working that well, he won't be willing to take significant bumps 'cause it'll jeopardize his MMA career/upcoming fight.

Hahaha @ being the leader of Aces and Eights. On a serious note, if he is good I would like to see him and Angle in a submissions match.I just hope he doesn't end up like Bobby Lashley.

Nice to see he's not expecting a superpush and he's willing to eat some pins :lol

King Mo does have a good amount of charisma from what I've seen in Strikeforce interviews, and he's clearly a big wrestling fan which naturally helps. Hopefully he applies himself in his training and he's a success.

He seems humble and comes across as a big wrestling fan, I'm looking forward to seeing him!
