Slam Wrestling has an interview up with MMA fighter Frank Trigg who recently signed a new four-fight deal with the UFC. Here are some of the highlights.
On his time in TNA Wrestling in 2008 and a possible return:
“We talked a little bit about it. We were trying to get back into it, but I signed my [four-fight] deal with UFC so that kind of pulls me out of pro wrestling at least for a while. But I was trying to get back in with TNA, and hopefully in the future once I’m retired from MMA and I’m full-time out of the sport, and ready to move on to something else, I can move into full-time pro wrestling.”
On what it was like to being training in pro wrestling:
“Tough, tough, man. I can cut a promo like nobody’s business. It’s easy to cut a promo than to actually do the sport. It’s tough. Pro wrestling is a tough, tough thing. It’s a lot of dedication. It’s a lot of me being able to work with a partner. In my expo, I don’t work with anybody. You’re punching me, I’m punching you; you’re kicking me, I’m kicking you. In pro wrestling, I have to be able to work with you. I have to trust that you’re going to put me in the right spot. You have to trust me that I’m going to go to the right spot that I’m not going to hurt you or be in the wrong spot when you try to kick me or try to move me around. It’s a dance that I wasn’t very familiar with. It was way more difficult than I thought it was going to be.”
