Progress Chapter 88 David Starr

In an interview with Wrestling Inc, David Starr denied that he was blackballed by wXw following his departure from the company last month following a career vs. title match loss. Here are highlights:

On if wXw blackballed him: “No, I’m not blackballed. I love wXw and I respect them so much. We didn’t want to stop working together but we had to. There’s a lesson to be learned and that’s freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequence. Sometimes when sh*t happens, it just sucks. You just put your head down and keep moving forward. That’s all you can do. It’s such a wonderful place and I had so much good stuff there. Anything else is quite obvious and I don’t think I need to spell that out for you.”

On the wrestling programs still doing shows during pandemic: “There have been other TV shows that are still doing shows. We see daytime shows and news but I think the news is significantly more essential than pro wrestling. I was a part of the no-fan Monday show and obviously things are changing day by day. That was still borderline then and at this point it’s very obvious that’s not okay. Subjecting people to travel and human contact – we need to chill. Everyone needs to stay inside as much as possible other than food, medicine and the basics. We all have to get on the same page and the sooner we do that, the sooner we’ll be on the other side.”
