In a recent interview on the Touch Grass Wrestling program, Trent Seven opened up about his experience working for All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and his aspirations to be part of the upcoming AEW & NJPW Forbidden Door 2 event.
Reflecting on his time at AEW, Seven fondly recalled his match against Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship. He described it as a unique experience that happened almost overnight. “I had a couple of lovely matches there. Orange Cassidy, it was a weird one, if was very very quick. It happened almost overnight, the whole thing,” Seven said.
Seven also shared his emotional reaction when he went backstage at AEW and saw familiar faces from the independent circuit achieving their dreams on a grand stage. “When I walked into that locker room, it was 40 people who have lived in my house. I was quite emotional. Not for me, but for them. Watching all these people that we [struggled] on the Indies and they are on good contracts, they’re making money. The AEW set up, at that point, was one day a week. That’s genius,” he expressed.
Speaking about his goals, Seven expressed his desire to be part of the Forbidden Door 2 event, which is a collaboration between AEW and New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). He highlighted the flexibility of working with AEW, where wrestlers can have the opportunity to dip in and out of their shows. “Forbidden Door is definitely a goal show to get on. The beautiful part of AEW is, you can dip in and out. Everyone, of course, common sense prevails, we all want a nice little contract. You don’t have to stress about everything, a little injury here, a little injury there, they all add up. It’s very nice to have the money come in every week, of course,” he stated.
While Trent Seven shared his admiration for AEW and his aspirations to be part of significant events like the Forbidden Door 2, he also acknowledged the importance of financial stability in the wrestling industry.
