AEW’s Unrestricted Podcast feat. Brody King

Brody King, who joined Malakai Black’s House of Black at AEW, talks about filming their creepy vignettes, how they found their entrance theme music, “Rise From Ruins” by Absent in Body, and why Buddy Matthews was allowed to join without the requisite number of tattoos! Brody talks about giving up his 15-year Hollywood career to pursue pro wrestling, why his trainer told him to grow a beard before his first match, how he wrestled for six weeks with his jaw wired shut, and the influence that Mr. Brodie Lee had on the Brody King persona. He also has stories from his time working on movies and TV shows in Hollywood including “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “Big Brother” (during Luchasaurus’ season), “Pirates Of The Caribbean,” and “Angels And Demons.” Plus, Brody explains how he balances AEW and performing with his own band God’s Hate, what it was like meeting his musical hero Henry Rollins, how he started his taxidermy collection, and how he ended up on season two of Tim Robinson’s “I Think You Should Leave.” 


On the influences behind his Brody King persona:

“Brody King is probably part Henry Rollins, part caveman, part something else.”

On his beard:

“When I started wrestling training, I didn’t have a beard, and my wrestler trainer was like, ‘Can you grow a beard? ‘Cause your face doesn’t match the rest of your body.’”
