Indie wrestler Luigi Primo recently joined Wrestling Inc. for an in-depth conversation about his unique comedic nature, and how he will stay true to his character, even if there are those who hate that style of wrestling. Highlights are below.
He says he understands that certain people don’t like comedy wrestling and that’s okay:
“I understand that certain people have a certain taste about wrestling and I respect that. I’m not at all one of those people who say, ‘Oh, this guy has to go into the 21st century.’ In fact, it kind of bothers me when people have that attitude, because people are allowed to like and dislike things.”
On his AEW cameo:
“On the other hand, I’ve seen how many people like it and how much it appeals to them. And I love it and I’m passionate about it. But to me, a calling isn’t just like, ‘Oh, I like playing Pac-Man, it’s my calling because I love doing it.’ The second half of a calling is having other people call you to do it and say, ‘Wow, this means a lot to us.’”
Says he will never compromise his character:
“I’m not going to compromise on character, [or] do everything only for other people.”
