In a recent interview with Wrestling 101, former WWE Superstar Ezekiel Jackson was asked how it was like working with several superstars, including during his time on the ECW brand, where he worked with the likes of William Regal and Christian. Here’s what he had to say:
You joined the ECW brand in 2009, what was it like working with the likes of William Regal and capturing the ECW Championship?
I’ve been a fan of William Regal since his WCW days, I would watch him and yeah you could see he was this snob character but when he unleashed hell, you saw it, you felt it, and you would think to yourself, I don’t want to be in there with him. To be working alongside William Regal was a great in for me and that pointed me in the direction of the ECW Championship.
I then began working with Christian and I felt my wrestling elevated ten fold, because Christian is a phenomenal entertainer and athlete. I felt like I owned the world when I worked with Christian because it was so much fun. People ask me to this day, what is my favourite match during my time in WWE and my answer is always the same, it was against Christian at a house show in Mexico City. It was the first night I didn’t have to do a squash match and we had a blast.
It was great winning the ECW Championship at the last ever ECW show, that moment no one can take that away from me, I was a champion in WWE.
