Nick Gage Gets Hyped Up By Watching Killers Confess To Murder

Major independent wrestling star Nick Gage apparently gets himself hyped up by watching macabre videos of killers confessing to murders.

Nick Gage is undoubtedly one of the most controversial stars in wrestling in recent years following his conviction for robbing a bank back in 2010.

Gage is best known for his work with GCW but has also appeared on AEW television as one of the five labours Chris Jericho had to survive to face MJF in 2021.

Speaking on the AEW Unrestricted current Ring Of Honor Pure Champion, Blackpool Combat Club’s Wheeler Yuta spoke about his experiences of travelling with Nick Gage during their days working indy shows:

“Nick Gage is incredible, he is one of the most, like real, genuine human beings that I’ve ever met. But there again, there was a point on the independents where, twice a month we would go to Ohio, then back to Massachusetts, and then home. The Ohio drive is eight hours, and then back to Massachusetts is 10ish.”

“Sometimes we wouldn’t do it in that order, but Massachusetts is like five or six. So, we would do that loop all the time. Just the life experience that the guy has. Being a young person that hasn’t lived the life that he’s lived, it was so interesting to hear different things about different things that he’s done in his life.”

Yuta then revealed that there is a great duality to Nick Gage as he gets himself amped up for competing in the ring in a very unusual way:

“I do remember the first time that I’d rode with him, I had met him just a few times. He wasn’t feeling well so he was kind of quiet throughout the ride. Then we get about 30 minutes away from the building, and he wanted to like amp himself up. He wanted to get hyped up. What do you do to get amped up? I look over and he’s watching videos of people confessing to murders.

“I was like, ‘woah, okay,’ I was blown away. ‘Out there, I am a killer. I am a killer, Yuta.’ I was like, ‘okay.’ Then he went and had this awesome match that was great. But that was the first time we rode together. The duality of Nick, on the way back we stopped at a rest stop, and he showed me how to win claw machines.”
