Jah-C, a young up-and-coming wrestler who was recently seen working on an episode of AEW Dark, is the first-ever Black Wrestlers Matter Champion. You might not know the name yet, but you’ll know the name of the man who trained him, current WWE Superstar Seth Rollins.
Andrew Thompson of Post Wrestling recently sat down with Jah-C to discuss a variety of topics. When asked what he learned from his trainers Seth Rollins and Marek Brave, Jah-C had plenty to say:
“From Marek Brave himself, just allowing me the showmanship and reminding me what this is that we do,” Jah-C said. “And so it’s all about putting on these bangers of matches but also entertainment is at the core of what we do and I think that Marek Brave specializes in that in a way that I don’t feel he gets enough credit for and that may be just because his injury took him out of the actual in-ring stuff so early in his life and as far as Seth Rollins man, the work ethic. The work ethic and the grind and the passion and the pride in which I put into my work. I have always had that but it was something that was reinforced sevenfold by that guy and I couldn’t have picked a better Yoda to go learn from.”
Jah-C also discussed what it means to be the first Black Wrestlers Matter Champion and makes it clear that he wants to defend it at different independent shows:
“Representing the culture comes with an immense amount of pressure but I happen to perform pretty damn good under pressure,” Jah-C said. “I don’t wanna put the cart in front of the horse quite yet. I have to put the work in. I’ve won the championship, I have yet to defend it although I know that Brooke Valentine is sniffing her nose around my business and to be quite frank with you, I don’t really have interest in intergender wrestling but that’s neither here nor there. That’s not the question you asked me. You asked me what did the match mean and it meant a lot.
“I have an immense amount of respect for JDX. When you open up the dictionary and you look up the word ‘prototype’ or ‘the blueprint’ or the franchise, that dude’s face is on it. He’s got all the makings to put the company on his back one day and I’ve always known that. You look in his eyes, you listen to him speak, you hear that same fire that I feel that I possess. You see the same vision of what is possible in this line of work in the future and what we want this business and industry to look like and I know that he has a lot that he wants to be and I can relate to that. So being in the ring with him for those 30 odd minutes, beating the living hell out of each other, putting on what I consider to be an Iowa classic. I don’t know how it’ll hold up.
“It’s incredibly special man. It’s incredibly special. The entire experience, it felt like leveling up. It felt like the actual — it felt like I was no longer the guy that I was last year or the day before the matchup. It felt like growth and the future of me carrying this championship is just going to prove that exact line, when I’m defending it against anybody.”
