WrestlingINC.com: Now, Slammiversary seemed like it got pretty universally positive reviews. Everyone that watched the show seemed to enjoy it. Do you think that TNA reducing the number of pay per views is helping the quality of the pay per views and making them seem even more important, like they were back in the day?
Robbie E: Yeah, I think that TNA takes is a good approach. I mean, it's 2013. How many people are really at home on Sundays and have the money to spend and buy 12 pay per views a year? So, this way there's the four big ones and the matches can really be built up and everything. They can mean a lot more, instead of matches being thrown together and stuff. I totally think it's a great idea.
WrestlingINC.com: What would you say are your short term goals in the business and your long term goals?
Robbie E: Short term goal, to win a match. Long term goal, to win the World Heavyweight Title.
WrestlingINC.com: About winning a match, have you thought about tweaking your on screen character at all? Or do you think it's just, everyone's careers have-
Robbie E: It's impossible to tweak, I am who I am, bro, know what I mean? I'm slowly starting to try and focus a little bit more and get more serious. It's just kind of hard. I'm just such a fun person. I just want to be on TV and be a star. I don't even care about winning. I'm just kidding. I'm going to focus more and get a little more serious.
WrestlingINC.com: Zack Ryder, after you had debuted, started doing his own take on a similar character, or what you'll call it. What were you thoughts when he started doing that? Did you think he was kind of copying you, or was it not a big deal?
Robbie E: Honestly, I don't know. As far as I know, he's from Long Island. I've known him for years too, me and him kind of started in the same area. He's from Long Island, I'm pretty sure it's not a character for him either. He's from Long Island, I'm pretty sure he goes to the same bars and clubs and does the same stuff. Again, I don't really know if it's much of a character.
WrestlingINC.com: Your YouTube series The List, how did that idea come about?
Robbie E: I told you, bro, it's real. Haven't you ever been to a club? Haven't you tried to get in? I always, from when I started partying, going to clubs and drinking at the age of pretty much 12, when I went to any clubs or anything. I always looked to high end clubs, New York City and Jersey and stuff. There's always the VIP list. I was always on the list. So that's how it was created.
