Former WWE Cruiserweight and IMPACT X Division champion, T.J Perkins (TJP), recently spoke with WhatCulture about WWE. He also talked about his upcoming return to Revolution Pro Wrestling on December 15th at Rev Pro’s Uprising.
TJP on feeling liberated after wrestling in WWE-
“I do kind of feel like I got my soul back a bit. The thing is, with WWE for most guys your matches and your moments are not yours. It’s theirs. You’re just carrying out what’s being asked of you to the most excruciatingly smallest detail. It’s like [the difference between] Michael Jordan at North Carolina vs. Michael Jordan on the Bulls. I’m very happy now.”
On his upcoming Rev Pro match against El Phantasmo-
“The RevPro British Cruiserweight title has its own influence as to what it means to people and it’s an honor to just be in the ring with that title, and [would be] as well as hold it.”
“When I talk about competing for the IC strap in WWE, it’s not because it meant a lot to me personally – but because I know what it meant to the Filipino fans. Every title has its own prestige and means something different to the people, and that’s something I keep top of mind.”

And check out our free Pro Wrestling Events Calendar for hundreds of events from around the world.
The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more like announced matches and preview videos, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event and if we’re able to update it in time. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2500 events since we started this in late 2018. Events from the largest promotions in the world to small Indie promotions. We started with United States & Canadian promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so may have to click at the bottom to see more on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on any of these event pages (also our news). If you’re a fan who went to an event, feel free to leave a comment about it. If you’re watching live, feel free to use this page as a live discussion.
