Once again, Austin Cooper, reigning King of the Ring, speaks exclusively to La Sustancia P as he is about to face Bruce Ballard on his first title defense. Enjoy this exclusive interview with the King of underground wrestling as part of the Special Coverage of KOTR5.
Welcome back to La Sustancia P Austin! We had a chance to hear from you a couple of months ago just before snatching the KOTR title from Dash Decker. That helped you to partially close a chapter of your RHW career as both Dash and Bruce Ballard were responsible for one of the most humiliating beatings you’ve suffered. Now, how does it feel to have a chance to close that chapter all together by facing Bruce once again after your handicap match loss?
It feels like justice is about to be served. Just look at what I did to Dash. Notice that nobody has heard a peep from Dash ever since I got my revenge. I humiliated his punk ass so he has vanished and now it is time to do the same to Bruce!
When you first wrestled Bruce it was just his second appearance. This is actually the fourth time you are fighting each other and now Bruce has much more experience. What do you think is his most dangerous skill or attribute? How do you plan to stop him?
Bruce might have a little more experience now but he will never have the experience that I have. I am the King of the Ring and I’ll be damned if Bruce is going to be the one to change that. I have noticed that he likes to put people in a body scissors and he is pretty good at it, but not as good as me. To stop him, I plan to destroy his legs and make him feel crippled.
How do you plan to torture and finish Bruce this time, considering your first match had one of the most brutal endings RHW has seen? Will you try to top that?
Oh you think that was brutal? Just wait to see what I have in store for this punk. Bruce isn’t the most flexible but he sure is going to look like it once I get a hold of him. Just watch the match once it happens and you’ll see what I mean.
What’s your prediction? How many rounds will it take you to win the match?
This kid is a joke and I’m still pissed about him and Dash teaming up on me. My prediction, aka what WILL happen, is that Bruce is going to get his ass whooped and he is going to wish he never stepped in that ring with me. Yeah sure, he’s a tough guy at times so maybe he will get 1 round in his favor if I get fatigued, 2 rounds in his favor max but that’s unlikely. That first round is mine no matter what, I’m coming out with rage.
What will it mean for you to defeat Bruce again and retain the King of the Ring title?
It will mean a lot to me to retain my King of the Ring title. It will show how dominant I am right now and I don’t know who could even stand a chance as my next match up after Bruce.
For how long do you plan to be the reigning King?
I plan on retaining my title until I decide to retire, which is going to be a while. Who wants to challenge me next after Bruce!?!? I’ll destroy you all!
And finally, do you have a direct message for Bruce…
HA! HA! HA! All I can do is laugh at you, you’re a fool! Let me know when you find Dash, hopefully he isn’t too crippled. Either way you two are about to be a mirror image (crippled) once I get a hold of you!
Thank you Austin! Now keep checking La Sustancia P for the final poll results and a final exclusive sneak peek coming tomorrow morning. And remember to be ready when King of the Ring 5: Bruce Ballard vs Austin Cooper is released tomorrow in the afternoon!
