Brutal Bob Evans:

I didn't think anybody would know who I was but then fans were coming to me like, please sign this! I was like, this is awesome."
His start in ROH:

When he discovered wrestling:
"My dad was a fan so I would just watch it with him here and there. Eventually I was watching it all the time."
Discovering Japanese Wrestling:

His first ROH match:
"My first Ring of Honor match was in Chicago, and it was me and Roddy versus Red Dragon for the Tag belts, and it was accidently announced as a tag title match."
"He's great. He's always there when I need him for advice and he's there to help me in any way possible. He's been a big mentor to me, a big friend. I wouldn't have anything that I have right now without him helping me out. I owe all of my success to him."
Chris Jericho tweeting him:
"He had seen my name around before and one he day he caught my match on a ring of Honor show and tweeted out that his favorite wrestler was Cheeseburger."
PMA (Positive Mental Attitude):
"I try to surround myself with good, positive people that are willing to lend a helping hand. I'm a really open minded person and I can't really think of anyone that I hate. I'm pretty much friendly to everyone."
His feelings to the fans:
"I feel like I have an obligation to the fans. It's not too much for me to take a few seconds to sign something for them or take a picture."
