Things are about to get Outlandish, and for all the right reasons.
On January 15th, 2022, Zicky Dice will host his first-ever wrestling show, Zicky Dice’s Outlandish Paradise. The event, streaming live on Twitch, promises to be a wrestling event like no other according to the IMPACT Wrestling star. Given that, I had to ask Dice who – or what – he could be looking for in booking talents for the show.
“Is there a specific trait? Is it a specific look? Something in between?” I asked. “What do you sort of look for in a pro wrestler?”
“Well, we’re shooting big,” Dice stated emphatically. “We’re shooting the moon for this event. I’m looking for someone that is quite entertaining. Someone that can not only put asses in seats but can entertain. Twitch is giving us a front-page stream. I’m expecting over a million in foot traffic through the stream. We’re limiting this event to 1,000 in-house. I promise you this: you will see stars in a small capacity that you won’t be able to see anywhere else. That’s what Zicky Dice’s Outlandish Paradise is bringing to you.”
“So what do I look for?” he said, circling back. “I look for someone that is truly going to entertain and captivate the attention of the masses. Although, there’s so many people that claim that can do that. I’m sorry to cut you off, but can they really? Can they really? If you’re a professional wrestler yourself and you’re asking yourself, ‘hey, I want to be booked on Zicky Dice’s Outlandish Paradise,’ can you keep me entertained? Can you? Ask yourself deep down, and you’ll know the honest answer. It’s probably no. But, that’s what I’m here to showcase.”
The Hey Brother Battle Royal
I, of course, had to pry a little bit more. Though Dice was unable to name names as far as confirmed talent goes, he was kind enough to give us a scoop on one of the event’s upcoming matches.
“There are certainly a couple of names that come to mind on the former of what you said, that WILL be able to bring that entertainment and put the asses in seats,” I mused. “But I have to ask, and I know that you’ve given some scoops in the previous interviews you’ve done before. Are you able to let me in on any specific names that’ll be there?”
“No, I can’t do that at the moment,” Dice admitted. “No, I apologize. What I can do is I can do this.”
“Ever since announcing the event, my messages and social media and DM’s have been blowing up, and every single message starts with ‘Hey, brother!’ That’s why I’m introducing the Hey Brother Battle Royale! When I announce the match online, the first 100 people to respond with those – you know that ‘eye’ emoji that everyone comments on that doesn’t really work? Well, this time it will! The first 100 people to comment those eyes, I’m selecting 20 of them to be in the Hey Brother Battle Royal.”
“Guess what they’re gonna win? I just ordered it. A big fat check of a million exposure bucks signed by Outlandish Zicky Dice!”
