Eric Young on his "impressive" Bound For Glory win percentage
Sportskeeda asked Eric Young how he would approach the match against Rich Swann, to which he responded:
"Yeah, 71% I feel with how many Bound For Glory's that I've worked at is a pretty impressive percentage, but the truth is, there are no numbers that can back where I'm at. The truth is, I was a very different person. I was a very different athlete. I was a different professional at that point in my career. I've got a chip on my shoulder. I've got something to prove, and I feel every week I'm showing the world what I'm capable of.
"Rich wants to believe that this is personal. It's never been personal for me. He's trying to make it that way, and if he wants to continue to make it that way, there's no problem. I will be at my most masochistic when it's personal. I will be a terror. I will be a very big problem for him or anyone else who gets in my way from what I want, and that's control, that's power, and control and power in the world of professional wrestling come with the world title."Published 23 Sep 2020, 01:57 IST
