Impact Wrestling’s Kongo Kong credits legendary wrestler and co-founder of Impact Wrestling Jeff Jarrett for being a “cool boss” and allowing him to be a highflying big man.
Kongo joined The Roman Show to talk about his recent trip to India, where Impact Wrestling filmed.
Hear the interview, below.
He said that Jarrett gave him a sense of confidence allowing him to be free inside the ring.
“He is one of the coolest guys or bosses I have worked for,” he said. “He has a knack for knowing what works. He lets us do our time.”
He is known for highflying moves despite his size and recalls when the late Rosey asked him to be wise when using such moves.
“I was told one time by Rosey, he said if you get a job with (WWE Chairman) Vince McMahon, he’ll ask you to stay on the ground and be a big man and fight like a big man and not do this flying crap,” he said. “I don’t know what his angle was when he told me that but I said ‘with all due respect I don’t work for Vince, but when I do ill do what he tells me too, but in the meant time I need to separate myself’.”
He also talked about the chemistry between him and Laurel Van Ness.
“I feel like we have this naturally odd something in a science fiction movie chemistry. It’s different. I love it,” he said. “Its something that pro wrestling is missing.”
Kongo also talks about his experience in India, how India views professional wrestling, Indian food, watching former Impact Wrestling employees on WWE and more.
