The Birth of Hardcore Style

“Yeah, we started that sh*t,” Gage remarked on the podcast. While he was all in on the hardcore style at the time, he admits it’s not his favourite. He elaborated,

“I like f*ckin’ really good wrestling, but I got a niche. I’m good at Deathmatch Wrestling, so I just do it.” Gage and his colleagues were the ones to introduce the extreme style to the States, driven by a mantra of ‘getting cr*zy,’ indicative of the era’‹.
