Kevin Steen / ROH, Eddie Edwards Talks CHIKARA & ROH
-- Eddie Edwards recently spoke to Sharp Shooter Press, here are some highlights:
On this being a vital time for Ring of Honor: "This is a very important time for ROH. Sinclair is giving us the opportunity to show the world what we can do. ROH has the most talented lockeroom in the world and its great that we finally get to show it. As far as the morale in ROH, its amazing. It really has that family atmosphere. Its a very positive vibe and I believe it shows in the product we produce."
On CHIKARA's "High Noon" and Wanting to Hold the New Title: "CHIKARA is a great company. Its something completely different for the fans and the events are always a good time. I have always heard great things about the company and from what I saw I knew I wanted to be a part of one of their events at some point so when I got the chance, I jumped. I'm up for facing anybody in the company as there are a lot of guys that I have never faced so I think it would be a great opportunity for some fresh new matchups. As far as the Grand Championship, if I am able to work my way to a title shot, its something I would love to hold."
On training with Killer Kowalski: "I really enjoyed my time training at Kowalskis. He was such a great man, he was there each and every class, the first there when you walked in the room. At the time when I joined, he was not as active in the ring due to his age and health but he was MORE than vocal outside the ring haha. At the time Wagner Brown was the head trainer and he helped me out more than I can say. I also did some traveling north to NH to train with Steve Bradley, one of the greatest minds I have been around. He taught so many guys in my area the important little things that so many people overlook. I was also lucky enough to be able to travel to Japan and live and train in the pro wrestling NOAH dojo. It was an amazing experience. Its something I will cherish for the rest of my life."
