The feedback he has received from fans since making his in-ring debut on iMPACT Wrestling: “It’s been quite the roller coaster ride. It’s all happened pretty quick. It’s been exciting, I’m having fun. It’s been intense. For the most part, I’m getting a good reaction from people with a lot of support. A lot of people would have never guessed that I would have gone the route that I have chosen to go, so it’s been nice to see the reaction & support from those people.”
When he knew he wanted to get into professional wrestling, what degree of pressure was put on him after he made the decision to join TNA, & the message he wants to send to those that feel he’s only a part of the company because he is Eric Bischoff’s son: “It’s something that I wanted to do, to get into the wrestling business. Obviously, I grew up around it. My father knew that, and he knew that I always wanted to be involved in it. I knew going into it that if this was we were going to do, there would be a different kind of pressure being the son of Eric Bischoff. There would be those that just assume I’m there just because I was Eric Bischooff’s son, whether it be people in the TNA ranks or the fans, or whoever. I just decided I was going to take it stride and rise above it the best I can and prove to everyone else that I’m not just there because I’m Eric Bischoff’s son.”
Whether Garrett is ready to face his father when the times comes during this feud with the two of them: “What father & son haven’t had that point in their lives where they wanted to knock each other out? I look forward to it in a way. In a way, I don’t.”
Much more is contained in Garett’s exclusive interview with The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network, including his candid thoughts on why he decided to turn his back on Immortal, his transition from referee to wrestler, the experience of working with Gunner over the past month for his first feud in TNA, whether or not it has been hard for him to establish his own identity, if his father has received a bad rap from critics over the years, which match he is looking forward to the most at Final Resolution, life outside the squared circle, plus much more!
