The history of the feud between himself and Sami Callihan in Combat Zone Wrestling: "Well, actually, what had happened was me and Sami, when we both came into CZW at relatively at the same time, we were both labeled as future World Champions of the company. So our careers, even though we never met in the ring, were always on a very similar path whether it be in CZW or in other wrestling promotions. We both were kind of moving up the ladder at the same time, so there was always a comparison there and there was a competitive nature there as well until finally, at "Best of the Best 10" me and him met in the finals and I won, in the finals of the tournament. And, in turn, it created this rivalry that's just continued to go on and on and on. Sami was the guy; I was CZW Junior World Heavyweight Champion for 553 days; I was the longest reigning CZW Junior Heavyweight Champion there ever was; I defended the title all over the world and Sami was the guy that took that away from me. At the time, that was the most important thing to me, so obviously, I had a lot to say about that as well. And even though Sami and I have had battle after battle and match after match, there's still always that comparison of who really is the best. And what it's come down to (at CZW Cage of Death on iPPV), I've decided, because I issued the challenge out to Sami, that me and him face off in a match that I feel he excels the most, which is No Holds Barred. We've had wrestling match after wrestling match; it's been proved time and time again that it's 50-50. It's one of those times where I if go in there, maybe I'll win and if he goes in there, maybe he'll win. But this is just the ultimate test of two men going into the ring and fighting and seeing who is the absolute best. So, this match is everything to me and I know it's everything to Sami so this is definitely going to be the one that settles the score for us and I certainly intend of being the guy to walk away the winner."
The biggest accomplishment for his year: "For me, it's got to be winning the Ring of Honor World TV Championship and, for me, the reason is, you know, Ring of Honor being the #3 company in the United States and being a company that I wanted to be a part of for so long; just for them to sit back and say we want to invest stock in you; we want you to be a guy we believe in; we want you to be a guy to help carry the company, is (pun-intended) a huge honor. So, for me to be given that opportunity and given that chance to have, hopefully, a very successful and memorable ROH World TV Title reign is awesome for me and it's definitely something that I'm very, very proud of and intend to keep for a long time."
