Does he still consider his career a failure after the films release: "I had to come round in my own time. To a certain extent, I still feel the same way I did then. I didn't achieve my dream. My dream was to be there, wrestling in the WWE, to have enough money to retire with and to be recognized on the street. I think the upshot of it was through this, the experiences I've had and getting to impact people's lives somewhat which made it worth the effort. That to me is the story of the documentary."
On being part of ROH as an on screen talent: "I love being a part of Ring of Honor. I felt like I achieved everything I could there so there wasn't that sense of disappointment there. I was very happy with my career there. It's nice to go back there and try to help them reach that next level."
His opinions of the fan criticism of ROH not being as good as it was: "We're in a difficult period, with the transition. When Punk and Joe left it was difficult to fill that void, when Dragon and I left, it was difficult to fill that void. The other guys have got to step up, but they've got to be given the opportunity to step up in the right way. Going forward, Delirious has got the reigns creatively and I think we're all excited about that and trying to get Ring of Honor back to the way it was where it was about bell to bell, the best in ring product in the world. There was some teething problems when Sinclair took over, but I feel like we're headed in the right direction and I'm excited to see where things go."
Feelings on British Bootcamp: "No I haven't had a chance to watch any of it. I'm super happy for them. Spud is a guy who I've seen on shows and thought was fantastic but like most people I thought he was too small, based on the hiring practices to be given a contract overseas but it's fantastic he's been given the opportunity."
Would he ever consider going back to TNA in any capacity: "I don't think there's anything I could add to them based on their current product. They have a notion of what wrestling is and they're gonna stick with that so I'm not really interested."
