We caught up with former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle to ask him about his match against RUSH at Madison Square Garden, what fans can expect from “An Afternoon with Dalton Castle” at G1 Supercard Festival of Honor, his “Planet Peacock” YouTube series and more.
1. If you weren’t a pro wrestler, what would you be doing for a living?
Probably crushing it on Broadway.
2. What's the best advice you’ve been given about the pro wrestling business and who gave it to you?
“Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true.” Some guy I met back in ’91 named Bodhi or something.
3. What is your most embarrassing moment in pro wrestling?
I once misquoted Shakespeare live on camera.
4. What’s a subject you’d like to know more about?
Dinosaurs. You know, just in case.
5. What’s something that’s popular that you just don’t see the appeal of?
6. Are there any life lessons people can learn by watching your YouTube series, “Planet Peacock?”
Plenty! Each episode of “Planet Peacock” you consume makes you a more complete human -- as long as you complete your homework after.
7. What can fans expect from “An Afternoon with Dalton Castle” at the G1 Supercard Festival of Honor?
Fans should lower their expectations. Then higher them just a touch, and then lower them further. But they should also be prepared to have the afternoon exceed all expectations that have been previously lowered. Maybe wear comfortable shoes?
8. We all know your guests for “An Afternoon with Dalton Castle,” The Bouncers, love to drink beer. Do you have a favorite beer?
I don't often drink beer. However, my favorite beer happens to be Beer City Brew. You might say the whole reason I invited The Bouncers is to ensure my favorite beer would be present.
9. What does it mean to you to be able to perform at Madison Square Garden before a sold-out crowd?
It means I am going to have a whole lot of hearts to break in “The World's Most Famous Arena.”
10. A victory over RUSH at G1 Supercard could be exactly what you need to get back on track. However, what happens if you lose?
I’ve never considered losing being a possible reality. So, who’s to say?
