Jake Something Talks Making Opportunities For Himself In Pro Wrestling

Former IMPACT Wrestling Star and pro wrestling veteran Jake Something spoke with Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp on a number of topics such as making opportunities for himself in pro wrestling by shooting some e-mails and driving his car 17 hours to Florida.

Jake Something said:

“I just shot some e-mails. I did the same thing I’ve been doing my whole career. If I wanted something to happen, I put myself in those situations. I jumped in every car I could. I sent every e-mail I could. Even when I got started with IMPACT, it was literally there was an open seat in a car and I drove 17 hours to Florida and I didn’t have anything booked, but then I was in a match with Bobby Lashley and then Bobby Lashley grabbed my arm and said, ‘Hey, let’s sign him.’ You’ve got to make opportunities for yourself. That’s just what I tried to do.”

Jake Something also spoke about having a cool experience in AEW and how every person in the promotion showed him a lot of respect and how they were super welcoming and inviting. Jake Something then spoke about how IMPACT Wrestling felt like a home, but NJPW right now feels like a good fit.

Jake Something said:

“It was cool because it doesn’t matter where you’ve been, eventually you’re gonna step into a new area. Even if I’ve been around pretty much that whole locker room anyway, it’s their area, right? So when I walked in, you don’t know what you’re going to get. But when I walked in everyone showed me a lot of respect. It was very cool and there was a lot of people who were super welcoming and inviting. I’ve got a lot of friends there. It was really cool. It felt good. I think of all the places I’ve been so far though, IMPACT felt like a home, but New Japan right now feels like a good fit. Everything feels really good there.”
