Eli Drake


Eli Drake spoke with Huffington Post for a new interview. Some highlights are below:

On his character being close to the real Eli Drake: “I have this personality, where I’m a natural introvert in my personal life, but when you give me a camera and microphone, I have a so much to say. It might be scathing to whomever is on the opposite side of me, but it is something that just really comes organically to me. One of my biggest gripes with wrestling in the last decade is it has seen a lot of silly, goofy characters. I feel like every other match is a comedy spot, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but I think if there is a comedy spot, it should be special.”

On his spot in TNA: “In all honesty, I’m super happy to be where I am, doing what I’m doing and making a living doing what I love to do. Now I’m being recognized in the sense of being given a more prominent role and being showcased; I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
