Kick-Out!! Radio - Episode 60

A first for Kick-Out!! Radio, an interview! Razor sits down with Jeff Katz to discuss Wrestling Revolution, what wrestling needs to be cool again, horror movies and a whole lot more in a near 90-minute discussion. In the Opening Bell, we examine Paul Heyman's comments on how he almost joined Impact Wrestling and why it ultimately fell through.

  1. He kind of sounds like Matt Striker... Or is that just me?

  2. I actually thought he sounded more like Paul Heyman. In any case, I really liked the interview and am now much more interested in the Wrestling Revolution project than I was before. I definitely respect his stance in the sense that he's not afraid to fail commercially as long as he feels that his creation has come from the heart, which is something that is becoming increasingly rare in any form of entertainment.

  3. I definitely heard Striker with a tinge of Heyman... Katz even acknowledged the similarities to Striker on Twitter.

    And yeah, I found it refreshing to hear that he's fine with being the Firefly of wrestling. Cult Classics are still classics.

  4. This was a really interesting interview - Jeff is clearly very knowledgeable about what he does, he talks a lot of sense and most importantly - he's clearly a wrestling fan.

    I'm genuinely interested in seeing the final product - like the guys says, even if it fails and only lasts one season at least he's creating something different to what we already have.

    I'm wondering whether his next announcement might be some sort of TV deal to go along with the JustinTV deal or not? That would certainly open the show up to a wider market because as much as people like Jeff and Dave Lagana talk about different ways of consuming media, a traditional Television model would still seem to be the most obvious and accessible way of watching shows to the widest market.
