During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes’ Liam Alexander-Stewart, Daniel Garcia recalled the most random match of his life – a match against The Hurricane in 2017!
Limitless Wrestling World Champion Daniel Garcia recently spoke with Inside The Ropes’ own Liam Alexander-Stewart, during the interview they spoke on a range of topics including Garcia’s toughest opponents, experiences in AEW & WWE and some of Garcia’s strangest opponents on the independents. Garcia would go on to name a Empire State Wrestling [ESW] match against the team of Randy Philbrick and WWE Legend Hurricane Helms.
Responding to a question from Liam Alexander-Stewart, Garcia would discuss his 2017 clash with the former WWE World Tag Team Champion stating:
“That had to be one of the most random matches of all time. It was me a dude named Rob Sweet, who I’ve never tagged with before, that never tagged with again versus Randy P who was teaming with The Hurricane. At the time Randy P was already in a tag team. He was like a tag champion and for some reason he wasn’t tagging with his tag champion partner… he was tagging with The Hurricane and we were wrestling at a fair in Salamanca, New York. So it’s like an Indian reservation, Native American reservation type of town. So we were wrestling there on like a free fair show. There’s no admission anybody can come see it. And it was the most random match in my life”
Garcia, who is set to defend his Limitless Wrestling Championship against JD Drake on May 7th, continued on discussing what it was like facing off against Hurricane Helms and what the former WWE Superstar was like to work with:
“Hurricane Helms was great to work with. He is a very big man in person. You don’t you don’t see that on TV, but he’s a huge man and he’s super creative and super down to earth and fun to work with. I really enjoyed my time working with him for the brief time that it was.”
The match in question took place on Empire State Wrestling’s 2017 Falling Leaves Festival event in Salamanca, New York. Garcia and his partner Rob Sweet were ultimately defeated by The Hurricane and his partner, the former ESW Tag Team Champion, Randy Philbrick.
Daniel Garcia is set to defend his Limitless Wrestling World Championship against former EVOLVE Tag Team Champion JD Drake on Limitless Wrestling’s May 7th event – The Games We Play.
Speaking to Inside The Ropes’ Garcia revealed why he believes he can defeat Drake to retain the prestigious World Championship held by the likes of AEW Superstar MJF:
“I believe that I’m going to be able to come out still champion. I wouldn’t be wrestling if I didn’t think I was going to be able to win every single match. But I’m expecting an extremely tough fight with J.D. Drake. He’s a veteran. He’s wrestled a who’s who of talent. He’s wrestled in Evolve. I was a big fan of JD Drake when I first started becoming a wrestler, and I’m still a big fan of his today. He’s somebody who deserves everything he’s getting recently with AEW. He deserves every opportunity that he has ever had because he’s a great wrestler. But I’m going to show to him that although you can be a great wrestler, just like a lot of these guys, the things that separate really great wrestlers from the best wrestlers, it all comes down to executing the little things. And I believe that I execute all the little things just a little bit better than J.D. Drake does. And that’s why I think I’m going to come with the win and remain Limitless Wrestling Champion.”
