Pro wrestling sensation Jordan Oliver recently opened up about his journey in the industry. He reflected on his tenure in Major League Wrestling (MLW), his aspirations for future gigs with big leagues like WWE, AEW, and NJPW, and his love for independent wrestling.
Oliver shared his experience with MLW: "For me, the MLW stint was a valuable experience. Though I'm passionate about independent promotions like Game Changer Wrestling and Demand Lucha, being part of MLW was enlightening. I got to rub shoulders with great minds like Low Ki, Savio Vega, and Court Bauer, who played crucial roles in elevating my skills and expanding my wrestling knowledge." However, despite the professional growth he experienced at MLW, Oliver made it clear that his heart lies with the independents.
"This is where I belong; this is what I want," he stated emphatically.
Oliver Considers AEW Partnership
Oliver's current tag team partner is Nick Wayne, about to make his AEW debut. Oliver excitedly shared, "Nick's debut is set for July 12th, two days after his 18th birthday.
Signing up with AEW to team up with him is a consideration. After all, we share a close bond and envision ourselves becoming a legendary tag team. Imagine us versus The Young Bucks or The Golden Lovers - that's something we often fantasize about." Although Oliver loves the indies, he acknowledges the need to broaden his horizons to fulfill his ultimate professional wrestling goal - becoming the best.
"To be recognized as one of the best, I realize I have to experience WWE, AEW, and NJPW. If AEW offers more tag opportunities with Wayne, I would sign without hesitation. And if WWE proposes something more than an NXT contract, I would consider it too." Nonetheless, the 23-year-old wrestling dynamo feels no rush to make these moves.
With eight years of wrestling, he believes he has plenty of time to evolve further. Referring to a past match with Jacob Fatu, he said, "Maybe that was two or three years ago, and I was just starting to get good. There's so much room for improvement, and time is on my side."
