Tracy Williams thinks the PWI 500 is goofy and legitimizing at the same time.
Ring of Honor‘s Tracy Williams recently sat down with Love Wrestling to discuss a variety of subjects. When asked what it meant to him to rank 90 on this years PWI 500, it was evident that Williams has some mixed emotions when it comes to that honor:
“I get that, and I’ve kind of been that guy here and there where it’s – once you’re so deeply, actually in wrestling, you do kind of see those things differently. Especially with, you know, there’s sometimes some questionable decisions on those lists and sometimes people are just totally left off that definitely should have been on. So, I understand why people have their issues with it. But, it’s one of those things where you have to kind of step back and look at it as like, no, this is really cool. If I wasn’t me now, if I was me as a kid and I knew that I was going to be on this list and seen in this way and a part of this, that’s pretty cool. I just try to look at things that way, and not be bitter, and just take them for what they are, which is [that] it’s nice to just be a part of that. It’s kind of legitimizing in a way, even though it’s not a legit list. It’s weird in that way! Like, it’s kind of a goofy list, but at the same time, it’s very legitimizing to be a part of it, and I think a lot of people feel that way.”
The interview also touched upon Tracy Williams’ recent chat with WrestleZone, where Phase two of The Foundation was discussed, when asked if Williams would like to utilize the “Forbidden Door” to strengthen their faction. Williams named quite a few talented wrestlers he’d like to add to the group:
“When you start thinking about all the doors you could go through [and] all the bridges that you could cross, I mean, there are tons of people. I think it’s no secret I’ve always been a huge supporter of Wheeler Yuta, [and] always been a huge supporter of Fred Yehi. These are both guys that I’ve teamed with in many other places, but I think it would be great to see people of all different kinds and all different genders represent The Foundation. There are great technical wrestlers across all spectrums of human existence. And so, uh, yeah, I mean, I’m a big fan of Nicole Savoy. She’s a great technical wrestler. I think she would be – I’d be proud to have her carrying that flag. Yeah, there’s a couple of names that I could think of, but there are people of all kinds all across that we’ve got our eyes on.”
