Rapper Westside Gunn recently spoke with Pitchfork to comment on performing Daniel Garcia’s theme song on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Both Westside Gunn and Garcia are from the city of Buffalo, NY, the location of last week’s Dynamite.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
Gunn on performing Daniel Garcia’s theme: “Wrestling for me is like how Wu-Tang had karate. It just goes hand in hand. I don’t think I’ve ever been this high. Like I’m a stoner and I’ve never even been that high. Bro I’m still high. I can’t believe it still.”
Garcia on how he felt about it: “It definitely felt like the most Buffalo thing ever. Buffalo is a city where everyone takes pride in everything. Buffalo could have the world’s fastest knitter, and we would ride for them like they were the world heavyweight champion of MMA. Since I became a wrestler, I always thought to myself if I ever do a big show in Buffalo, I want Westside Gunn to play me out.”
Gunn on a future appearance in wrestling: I’ve been there since day one and that was always a dream of mine—just being a part of it. And it’s all about timing. I could’ve had the opportunity sooner, who knows, but it happening in Buffalo for Danny and him winning the belt? That’s the story. It doesn’t get any better than that. Maybe this’ll open up the door for more business and more appearances. I look at this as just the beginning.”
