Action Bronson recently discussed his upcoming in-ring debut at AEW Rampage: Grand Slam.
Rapper Action Bronson will be teaming up with FTW Champion, HOOK to take on Jericho Appreciation Society’s Matt Menard and Angelo Parker, this Friday at AEW Rampage: Grand Slam.
Bronson, who performs HOOK’s theme ‘The Chairman’s Intent’, recently appeared on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and explained how the match came together:
“They had the idea for me to walk him down to the ring. Then, I started training a little bit and they saw my athleticism and prowess.”
Bronson went on to discuss his training, including taking bumps and running the ropes:
“Create A Pro, I like to give them a plug because they showed a lot of love. It is a school, but it’s a dojo (run by Pat Buck). Taz got everything hooked up. Just started f*cking around, teaching me sh*t. Nine-ten weeks ago and things started moving from there.
Taking a bump…I just practice offense. F*ck that. I don’t fall. I have it in the contract. I don’t fall. Taking bumps is serious, it’s not an easy thing. I’ve worked different styles and this is one of the toughest. I love it [running the ropes]. It’s intense, makes me feel good. You have to hit them right, no doubt about it.”
When questioned if he would be doing more matches, Bronson responded:
“I’m not part of the roster, but I’m a hired gun. I’m a f*cking hitman for hire.”
