Joey Styles Talks FloSports, If He was Trying to Get Fired from WWE

Former WWE announcer Joey Styles was recently a guest on X-Pac’s X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast. You can check out some highlights from the conversation here:

On FloSports:

“I think yeah, twenty dollars it’s obviously double the ten dollar price of WWE Network. You can also pay a hundred and fifty dollars up front for the year, which comes out to twelve-fifty a month, and then not only does that give you all of the pro wrestling programming on FloSlam.TV, but you get all the programming across other channels. So they have FloCombat.TV, which is MMA, they have FloGrappling.TV, which is Brazilian jujitsu, they have boxing, they have rodeo if you’re into that, they have cheerleading. The other point, as a pure wrestling fan, you know the real hardcore wrestling fans, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that you could be paying ten dollars a month to watch Beyond Wrestling’s subscription service, and then paying eight dollars a month for Chikaratopia.com, and then paying twenty dollars a month for a PWG DVD. It can get expensive really quick, whereas if all these companies see the future and see the vision if pro sports they can go ahead and license footage and there will be a much bigger audience paying twenty dollars a month to see every major indie wrestling promotion.”

On if he was trying to get fired from WWE:

“No, I was not trying to get fired. That’s not the case. But I had ten years there. I made great friends, I made great money, I have no grudge whatsoever. I have lots of friends who still work in the office. I’m friends with a lot of the talent, and I couldn’t be happier for all their success.”
