Craig Classic Interview with a Classic One

Postby Bernd Lorenz aka Tazzmaschine » 16.07.2011, 07:54

Hello Wrestlingjunkies,
today my guest comes from the USA.
Please welcome A Classic. Craig Classic.
Hello Craig,thank you for this interview.

Can you please tell the fans who you are?

My name is Craig Classic, I'm a professional wrestler from United States for NWA and Zero1 in Japan.


Craig ,how do you come to the decision to be a Pro wrestler and get to Japan?

I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Chris Benoit, and guys who have trained and went on to wrestle in Japan.

First Gaijin to train in BJW Dojo in Japan. An great Honor. For the guys who didn´7 know it,a Gaijin is a Japanese word meaning "non-Japanese".

To claim that I was first Gaijin to be invited to train and go on to debut for BJW is an honor.

After your training in Japan you returned to the U.S. and continued training seven days a week under Florida’s very own “Soul Man” Alex G.How was it trained by a men who was traind by the Malenko Brothers?

Training wasnt easy. But I got to learn the basics and classic style of professional. Going hold for hold and doing alot of drills in the Florida heat everyday.

When you get inside the Ring what is your Favorite Rule,Heel or Face?And why?

It doesnt matter if I am heel, face.. I have a job to do and that is all that matters.

Is WWE or TNA in the USA an Aim for you? And which Promotion is your Favorite?

My aim has always been Japan, I love Japanese style. But if an offer from either TNA or WWE come to me, I would take it of course.

Your worked for TNA as Security,thats right?

Yes in 2005-2006

When you look in the future is there anything you want to do in wrestling or a match you are dreaming for?

I want to wrestle in Super J, and match in Jushin Liger or Ikuto Hidaka

And when you look at your time in Wrestling what was your personal highlight inside the ring?

Returning to Japan on 3/6/11 to defend my NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Title against Munenori Sawa

And outside the ring? Perhaps November 2010?


On your Facebook stand:People who inspired youself. Japan Hero Jushin Thunder Lyger and Chris Benoit. Why this people?

I love the Jr style of wrestling, It is very exciting and these guys made this style famous across the world.


When i know it right you hold to NWA title´s, the NWA Florida Junior Heavyweight Champion and the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion. How does it feel hold two titles of the NWA,a promotion with a long tradition.

Its a great honor!, I love the tradition of the NWA , Its amazing!. I look forward to any challenge for my titles across the world.

Where do you wrestle now?When i look at your folling events there are Florida,New Jersey,Atlanta but also Puerto Rico and Chile.

I wrestle across the United States defending my NWA World Jr Belt, Puerto Rico and in Japan for Zero1


By the way you worked many times in Japan,over 10 Tours in 5 years.Whats the differnt between wrestle in the USA and Japan?

now 11 tours, Style is very diffrent. there its a sport and here its more entertainment. I enjoy the japanese style more.

And what do the men behind the wrestler when you not stands in the ring?

I like to work out and watch hockey

At the last something to say to your fans ?

Thank you for the support and keep up with my on facebook.com/craigclassicbjw or twitter.com/craigclassic1

Thank you being my guest and i hope we see you sometimes in a german ring.

Thank you and I hope I can come to German in the near future!!!

Interview UPDATE 14 July 2011

I relinquish my NWA World's Jr. Heavyweight Title in Protest to the horrible decision to strip our world champion the Sheik of his title. Sheik was on a tremendous roll bringing the title overseas and around the United States. I love and respect this business and for this to happen to anyone in are industry is horseshit and I will not agree with this decision.

Craig now you have relinquish the NWA World´s Jr Heavyweight Title,what was the reason behind that?

Hey bro,
Reason behind it is this. I am not gonna stand and support a company that would strip a title off of someone for wanting to take a tour of Japan over 1 nwa booking. Plus hearing from many people within the NWA that the president doesnt care about Japan. my wife is japanese, i spent years in Japan, and i few it is a slap in face and lack of respect. and there are other reasons as well
