Jungle Boy Responds to Promo Criticism
AEW star Jungle Boy has responded to criticism over his promo skills, rejecting allegations that he avoids such tasks. In an interview with Simon Miller of WhatCulture, the wrestler admitted that while cutting promos isn’t his preferred activity, he doesn’t shy away from it. He also expressed his desire to continuously improve in this aspect.
”Yeah, with the promo thing, I didn’t really think about that on the indies. All I really wanted to do is wrestling. When I was a kid, I wanted to wrestle and do cool stuff. I feel like I’ve got that down. For the most part, I feel pretty competent. I could go in there with anyone in the world and throw down. The promos, I got a lot of flack in the beginning when I said I want to run away when they make me do it. People thought that was a literal thing. It’s an expression.
“It’s not my favorite thing to do. I’m never going to be like MJF and show up and request 30 minutes to go out there and blabber on. That being said, I don’t really care anymore. I’d like to improve a little every time as I go. It is what it is. It’s got to be done. I’m not that worried about it, and I’m feeling more comfortable all the time.”
Jungle Boy, a part of the Four Pillars of AEW, is widely recognized for his technical prowess in the ring. Despite the backlash over his promo work, he remains unfazed and continues to gain confidence.
