While speaking to WrestleZone for a new interview, Steel said that it is pretty crazy for him to be in the ring at this stage of his career.

“It’s pretty crazy to be in the ring at this stage. I mean, it’s been a little while. Every now and then, I’ll do an independent just because you know, you get the itch. Since I’ve opened a wrestling school, I’ve been a lot more active in the ring and working with folks.”

Steel went on to expand on his match with Kazarian, noting that fans can expect some fun from the match.

“The thing that brought me here at the pay-per-view Against All Odds, a foreign object was used by Frankie Kazarian, he dropped Joe and he went to needlessly put him in his submission, his crossface chicken wing and I interrupted that. Frankie disrespected me by pushing me, and it’s a hard thing for us, especially Chicagoians, to have someone get in your face and not back up anything and just cower away. Just by instinct alone, he pushed me and I dropped Frankie and now here we, Chicago street fight is on. I’m ready to go, I’m ready to do it. Never felt better, as good as I’ve felt in years. I’m in great shape at this point. Expect some fun, we’re gonna beat the hell out of each other.”
