Podcast Guest: Frankie Kazarian
Frankie Kazarian is one-half of the inaugural AEW World Tag Team Champions, SCU, and among the first wrestlers signed to AEW at launch. He speaks to how he got in at the ground floor, what The Young Bucks and “Being The Elite” did for SCU’s popularity, beating the Lucha Brothers for the tag title, and what it’s like having a beverage and talking shop with your boss. Frankie was Christian Cage’s first AEW opponent, and explains why he thinks Christian has the highest wrestling IQ of anyone he’s been in the ring with. You’ll also hear about Frankie’s friendship with Christopher Daniels, his love of Metallica, how he started playing bass, what prompted him to start American Rebel Cigars with Cody Rhodes, and how he ended up with a cameo in the Netflix series, GLOW. Plus, Frankie shares the story of “Do Ya!,” his Top 5 metal songs, and why calls the “Flux Capacitor” his “Break Glass In Case of Emergency” move.
