CJ Parker discusses life after NXT and returning to the indys

Alex Obert of JourneyofaFrontman.com passed along an interview he conducted with former WWE NXT star CJ Parker talking about returning to the independent wrestling scene.

On life after NXT:

“I think people forget that we do NXT shows in front of two hundred people on Fridays and Saturdays. Not everything is Full Sail. I’m used to these small crowds and I love them. It’s a little more intimate, it’s a little more up close and personal. It’s cool. I like it as much, or in some ways, even more than a big, huge crowd. You can really, really connect with individuals and it’s a great time. If you can get a hundred people to make some noise, you’re doing good.”

Advice from Seth Rollins and Kevin Steen about returning to the indys:

“They just said you gotta hustle. You gotta talk with promoters, you gotta bargain. You gotta make sure you have merchandise to sell to people. They know how I feel about wrestling, they know that I’m passionate about it. They know that I’m gonna make it work and I’m gonna have a blast wrestling here at Five Borough or tomorrow at CZW or in the backyard at some twelve year old’s birthday party. I’m gonna have a great time doing it. They’re just happy for me because they know how happy and excited I am.”
