Hardcore Holly interview highlights:
In a recent interview with the UK Sun Hardcore Holly said he tries to watch both WWE and TNA programming…
“I try to watch [WWE], but sometimes I can’t because it annoys me. There’s a lot of good stuff though. I’m a huge fan of Fandango and I think Dolph Ziggler is the best right now. I would love to see Ziggler and Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania. I don’t usually buy PPV events, but I would buy that one for sure.”
“I enjoy watching TNA and they’ve got great talent across the board, especially Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, James Storm and AJ Styles. Although, I don’t know what the deal with AJ is — they seem to start and stop with him.
“I was really impressed when I met Magnus, he’s got a good mind for wrestling and I think he’s going to have a great future in the business.”
