Check out the highlights below.
Aaron Chalmers on wanting to join WWE and Bellator at the same time:
“I’ve always said after Bellator, wrestling is what I want to take up, but I also want to try and run it alongside Bellator as soon as possible. I want to keep as busy as I can, if I’m not fighting I’m wrestling. I want to try build The Joker brand as big and as worldwide as I possibly can. What better way to fight on Bellator and be on NXT/WWE. I entertained on MTV, which got me over to Bellator and then I can exaggerate it over to WWE. One thing that does not bother me is the cameras. What I lack in skillset I make up for in character.”
Aaron Chalmers on how Bellator will be his top priority:
“Bellator will always be the priority. Eight weeks out from a fight it would be purely MMA, then we would pick the wrestling back up afterwards. While I feel I can physically compete at a good standard I’m going to stay in MMA. Another three good years until I’m 36 and try finish with 15-20 fights that would be me done. When I feel like I’m done physically in my body then I’ll call it a day. I was only meant to go in there and have one fight now I’ve had seven so if I can get to 15-20 then I’d be more than happy.”
