When asked about who he views as a potential breakout star in 2021, Silver wasted no time in making his decision.
“The first one that comes to mind is John Skyler. Most people don’t know this but when I wrestled Skyler on Dark, that wasn’t supposed to be the match. It was supposed to be myself and Alex [Reynolds] versus John Skyler and the wrestler, an independent legend, B-Boy. So right in the beginning of the match B-Boy actually tore his Achilles, so the match stopped and they decided to put me and Skyler in a match with obviously very little preparation. We just kind of went out there, we did the match and everything he did was great. I think the match went very well. He’s also been around a long time, so I’ve been on shows with him on the indies.”
“But to be prepared for a match and have an injury happen, unfortunately, and then have it switched and still be ready to go is a great attitude to have. I think the first name I’d say is Skyler, but I gotta also mention my buddies who we’ve wrestled, and I feel bad sometimes because we just beat them up, VSK. I gotta say VSK, Eric James and I gotta say Milk Chocolate [Brandon Watts and Randy Summers] as well.”
Silver would go on to explain why Griff Garrison is a ‘weirdo’ as well as several other topics.
