This week, we are absolutely pumped to talk to the amazing Rocky Romero.
Rocky has wrestled for over two decades, debuting back in 1997 after being trained by Antonio Inoki at the NJPW Dojo in Los Angeles.
Rocky’s career has taken him through promotions in Southern California, Mexico, and most notably, NJPW and Ring Of Honor.
In NJPW, Rocky worked under the hood as the fourth incarnation of Black Tiger, eventually defeating Tiger Mask for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. He’s a former three-time Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champion and a record eight-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion.
When he’s not wrestling, Rocky stays busy by keeping Anderson and Gallows from going off the rails on their popular podcast and winning the Talk ‘N Shop A Mania 24/7 Championship and Lucha Death Matches.
In this episode, we talk to Rocky about living in a world that suddenly maskless again, how NJPW was always his ultimate goal, the differences between working in Japan and the United States, the success of the podcast and the family created on Zoom calls during the pandemic, and their upcoming live show at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood on Sunday, June 13th.
Ladies and gentlemen, entering the podcast, hailing originally from Havana, Cuba, this is Rocky Romero.
