Wheeler Yuta Talks About Mic Work During MJF Promo Segment, AEW Dynamite Anniversary Show Match

Wheeler Yuta recently appeared as a guest on Busted Open Radio for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the AEW star and member of the Blackpool Combat Club spoke about his microphone work during his promo segment with MJF, as well as their match at the AEW Dynamite 3-Year Anniversary show this past Wednesday night.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On his match on the anniversary edition of AEW Dynamite: "It was definitely a different pace, but I’ve wrestled MJF a bunch. We wrestled a lot on the independents. I think they even said we were like 2-2 in singles matches and that we’ve had a bunch of other tags and different iterations of that. Yeah, definitely [there could be some rust there for MJF]. He hasn’t been in the ring in that long but I don’t think I really had to step down or do anything like that. Obviously, he went out there and he brought it and I really enjoyed the pacing of the match. It was really nice to kind of, like you said, hear the crowd and hear how they were reacting to certain things and it was definitely something that I enjoyed but yeah, I think it was a bit of a change of pace but I don’t think it was I had to take a step back or anything. I think it was just a different lane that we took. But, I really enjoyed the match last night."

On how he’s proud of the promo work he did against MJF, also admitting that there is still room for growth: "I was definitely proud but, I understand that there’s immense room for growth. This is obviously not where it ends for me with promos, with talking on the microphone. You brought up the Rocky analogy. Obviously in the first movie, he doesn’t win, he gets his ass kicked but then as you move on from there, things start to improve a little bit, right? So hopefully as I continue to sort of move forward, I won’t just be the guy who’s kind of hanging with the other person. Hopefully I’ll be able to really develop that skill set, really show that as well but, I’ve had many reps in the ring. I haven’t had as many reps doing promos so I was happy with where I was at-at that point but obviously, just wanna keep improving, keep growing."
