Moose: Why I'm 'Kind Of Indifferent' About Winning The IMPACT World Title
Moose won the Championship at Bound For Glory 2021
Moose has admitted he feels 'kind of indifferent' about winning the IMPACT World Championship, calling the Title 'a prop' for storytelling purposes and won't change his attitude towards working hard as a wrestler.
Moose finally claimed the IMPACT World Title in shocking scenes at the conclusion of Bound For Glory 2021 last month, cashing in his 'Call Your Shot' Trophy to win the Championship from Josh Alexander, who had been celebrating in the ring with his family after winning the belt from Christian Cage.
While Moose is delighted to have been declared the guy in IMPACT Wrestling, he recognises the purpose of having the Championship is to tell a story, and being IMPACT Champion won't stop him working as hard as he always has.
Speaking on SGP Radio, when asked about winning the IMPACT World Championship, Moose said: "I'm kind of indifferent about it. It feels good for a company to put the championship on you and be like, 'Hey, you're our guy.' At the end of the day, it is just a prop. It is just a prop. One thing I have noticed with this prop is that it makes you busier. When I didn't have the championship, I didn't have to do all these interviews and I didn't have to pre-tapes.
"Don't get me wrong, I'm not downplaying being IMPACT World Champion, obviously you don't become a wrestler without one day wanting to be World Champion. At the end of the day, I can't take it to heart and be like, 'I'm the world champion, I'm the best in the world.' This is Quinn talking, not Moose, because obviously Moose feels different. At the end of the day, I'm still going to work hard and work as hard as I've been working.
"It doesn't mean I'm going to look at wrestling different because I know as Quinn that this title is just a prop and for storytelling and it doesn't make me any better or any less than before I had it. I still have to put the work in and do exactly what I've been doing before I got it. It's just another day in the office.
"I get that from Bill Belichick. It doesn't matter how many games you win or go to the playoffs, you have to look at it as just another day in the office. That's one thing I took from Bill. Winning the title is just another day in the office. I'm still going to do the same things I've been doing and nothing is going to change."
