Adam Pearce On Exploiting #August1Warning Videos, Gut Check, Colt Cabana

The following are highlights from a recent interview with Adam Pearce:

On rumors he was behind the #August1Warning videos: “I wasn’t surprised that a few people picked up on it. I was then crazily surprised that it seems like everybody assumed that I was going to behind those wonderful videos. … Within hours, I was obviously the guy!”

On his decision to exploit the attention received by the #August1Warning videos: “Within the first twelve hours. It was to the point where it wasn’t just fans and it wasn’t just online. I was getting texts from people who know me, and people who should know better. … If half the boys are thinking this, then why wouldn’t I use it?”

On what he expected from TNA Gut Check: “Reality television is scripted television. Pro Wrestling is scripted television. So why would ‘Reality Television within Pro Wrestling Television’ be anything other than scripted television.”

On his 7 Levels Of Hate series with Colt Cabana: “It’s a wrestling story from soup to nuts, except for all of the drama that happened 75% of the way throughout the series. I think people are going to be both surprised and really interested to see how things effected real life for guys like me and guys like Colt Cabana.”
