Speaking with Spencer Love on the Conversations With Love podcast, Logan Creed chatted about COVID-19, working with Court Bauer, signing with MLW, and the various factions he’s worked within the promotion. Below are a few highlights from the interview and the full podcast embedded via YouTube.

 Life During COVID-19

“I’ve actually been staying pretty busy. I’ve got a 15-month old son who keeps me running right now, and it’s funny because it’s kind of a double-edged sword. I miss being on the road, and I definitely miss wrestling, but I’ve got to spend a lot of quality time with him. So, I’m thankful for that. It was a blessing in disguise because I would have missed his first steps and a lot of the things that would have happened when I was on the road, so it was nice. It’s nice to be home.

Why He Signed With MLW

I saw an opportunity to grow as a wrestler. At the time, actually, when we were, we started negotiating a contract, I was offered a WWE tryout, and I turned it down because I wanted that opportunity to go with MLW. I love the underdog factor. I’m a hustler. I’ve always been a hustler, and here’s a company that’s growing and building something, and I’m like ‘man, here’s where I can go really dig in and create, and they’re going to want me to create,’ and I was absolutely right.

Working with Court Bauer

Everyone’s involved and pitching ideas and stuff to do. You can see it. It’s out there. And I’m in constant contact as well, and we’re working on stuff, and there’s stuff that’s going to be coming out soon that I’ll be involved with. It’s constant back-and-forth. If I’ve got an idea, I don’t hesitate to send it, because there’s not going to be a negative reaction. It’s never going to be a negative

response.

Working with The Dynasty

“Y’know, when you’re coming into a company – I remember that message after, y’know, we were done with the contract, and the message I got was ‘alright, well, you’re going to be with Dynasty, and you’re going to be doing this.’ Obviously, my first response was ‘holy s**t! I’m coming into a company, and they’re putting me with the top guys,’ because these are the top guys in the company. MJF, Hammerstone, Holliday, these are guys who are stars, and are going to be stars, and will go on to be even bigger stars. And so, I was super psyched. I was excited about the opportunity, and I think that was one of the things that, when I got there, that they saw how invested I was in doing whatever it took to be what I needed to be.
