Dougie Nunny is on a distinguished road
Default Brandon Day Interview

Recently, I sat down with Brandon Day, of East Coast fame, and conducted an exclusive interview.

Below are the highlights:

Dougie Nunny: Which is more important to you at this stage of your life, your education or your wrestling career?
Brandon Day: Wrestling and I'll give you an example. My first week at college I had five shows: I wrestled the Saturday and Sunday before, the Wednesday during at a fair (during a horrible rainstorm where we were wrestling under a tent that we nearly hit our heads on just standing in the ring) when I had to be in class the early the next morning, and the Saturday afterwards which ended up costing me my job because though I had asked off for all the dates, they never gave me the Saturday off. I've sacrificed a great deal to get to where I'm at now, which frankly isn't close to where I want to be and I'm willing to sacrifice more to get there. If someone called me up tomorrow and said we need you to move here and you start work for us tomorrow full time, contract, the whole deal then I would leave school immediately to do so.

Dougie Nunny: What do you feel about Ric Flair and his open remarks and shots at many numerous wrestlers, including Bret Hart and Mick Foley, in his autobiography?
Brandon Day: I'm not finished with the book yet, but I disagree with his comments thus far about Bret Hart and those that I've heard him say about Mick Foley.

Dougie Nunny: Who do you think influenced your overall package the most?
Brandon Day: My style, like I said, is very similar to Bret Hart, although I've recently been trying to stray away from that strict technical style to incorporate more innovative moves into my repertoire. My personality probably reflects Raven's in many ways, but mostly try and stay away from stealing other wrestlers' mannerisms.

Dougie Nunny: What kind of injuries have you sustained in your career?
Brandon Day: I've got really bad knees. I wear braces on each leg and two pairs of knee pads to help and protect them. My back is a nagging problem but nothing that most workers don't have. As far as serious injuries go, I've had a concussion, suffered what I believed to be a mild stinger after taking a fisherman buster, and a separated shoulder that took about 4-5 months to heal. Despite that very painful injury, I didn't miss a booking in that time and even wrestled a match later on in the evening after the injury occurred.

Dougie Nunny: What advice would you give to up and comers coming into the business?
Brandon Day: Get in shape, keep their mouths shut at all times and their eyes and ears open. Be a sponge and learn something from everyone you meet everywhere. Shake hands with everyone. Nobody and I mean absolutely nobody is above that and anybody who doesn't do it is in immediate danger the next time they step in the ring with someone who notices.

Dougie Nunny: What is your take on the current product of WWE?
Brandon Day: It's not wrestling, and that's bad enough, but most times their sports entertainment is not entertaining. Thankfully, Eugene has taken off and really brought me back to Raw every week, but it's his presence and his alone right now that keeps me watching.

Dougie Nunny: What are your long term goals as a wrestler?
Brandon Day: To be someone's favorite wrestler. Not my mom, not someone I know, but a legitimate fan's opinion that I'm the best and that I'm the most entertaining. There's a lot of other stuff I hope leads to that, but that would be a true honor.

Dougie Nunny: If it is all right with you, I would like to try a little name association with you.
Brandon Day: Shoot.

Dougie Nunny: Vince Russo
Brandon Day: Overrated in my opinion. He had the most talented WCW roster in ages at his disposal and still couldn't make it work. Very creative, but perhaps his creativity shouldn't be used in wrestling.

Dougie Nunny: Triple H
Brandon Day: Tremendous performer lives the business. He should've put over just about everybody he beat during his long title reign.

Dougie Nunny: David Flair
Brandon Day: Was no where near ready when his career began in WCW. He has improved a great deal since his time there. Pleasant person to have been in the locker room with.

Dougie Nunny: Steve Austin
Brandon Day: Was the perfect guy at the perfect time to set the wrestling world on fire. Unfortunately, his ring work went down as his popularity went up.
