- Steven Muehlhausen of BetweenTheRopes.com interviewed Ring of Honor Heavyweight Champion Michael Elgin yesterday to help promote "Death Before Dishonor 12" on August 23 in Chicago Ridge, IL. During the interview, Elgin discussed TNA reaching out to him in June before the ROH PPV.
"I was kind of reached too. But, ultimately I really have no interest (in TNA)," Elgin said. "I felt that I still had things I wanted to accomplish with Ring of Honor and that's where my heart was. If I had thought about going anywhere else, went anywhere else, I still think I would have felt like I have some unfinished business there, so I definitely didn't want to even think about it. As I said, I was kind of reached out too, but it was brought up that there was some interest, but I wanted to keep moving forward with ROH."
Elgin also discussed the feeling of winning the title at ROH's first live traditional PPV, Kevin Steen leaving the company, Spike TV/TNA situation, why he feels he is the best wrestler in the world and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
