Low Ki spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and was asked about Alberto El Patron being stripped of the GFW Championship. “It was definitely a surprise,” Low Ki said. “I wasn’t sure as far as the direction of where things were going only because when you have a pending suspension or a suspension that was established and then pending the internal investigation, it’s always up in the air as far as what’s going to happen. And with a top priority in Alberto being the champion, it sucks because I understand as a performer how much work in takes to become a world champion. It’s an incredible amount of work just to be a wrestler let alone trying to balance both your personal and professional life in the public realm. It’s one of those things where I feel for him but, unfortunately, this is what happens when you’re outside activities can hurt you in your professional life. Best of luck to him in getting everything situated and get him back on track with things but, for now, I got my sights set on the world championship.”
Low Ki also discussed what’s different about his fifth run with the company compared to his previous stints. “It’s interesting to be back now because I’m in a position of experience more so that I ever have been,” he said. “With my longevity, I’m familiar with a majority of the roster. I’ve either wrestled against them or with them in some capacity somewhere down the line. I’ve seen some of them actually grow up, Sonjay being one of them. From 15 years ago until now, I’ve seen him grow up and mature within the profession. I’ve been around a while and, it’s interesting because even though it’s different, it has similarities to the beginning, the early stages of the company when it first began because there is that little bit of uncertainty as far as what’s going to happen next because this is the rebuilding stage, just it like was in the beginning.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
