His first TV exposure with Paragon Pro Wrestling on POP TV:
"I really enjoyed Paragon. It got off to a very slow start. By the end of it, I felt they had really found a place for themselves. But, it just didn't work out. For me personally, as far as finding a place for yourself and being a character on TV, Paragon really helped me out a lot. It got me ready for Impact. I didn't have any weird transitions that some other guys have had from just coming from indy shows. Plus, the management there (at Paragon) of Matt Striker, D'Lo Brown, Sinn Bhodi, THe Grappler Len Denton. It was great learning from those guys. I really enjoyed Paragon and I wish it had stayed around a little longer. I feel like right when it was taken off the air, the ball was really starting to roll with them."
Challenging for the World Tag Team Titles against the new champions:
"Oh yeah. Obviously me and Trevor (Lee) both know Andrew Everett very well. We also know DJZ very well. DJZ was actually in the match that I was signed to Impact Wrestling for. I look forward to getting back in the ring with both of those guys and I look forward to beating the crap out of them and taking their titles."
The changes in management for Impact Wrestling over the time he's been under contract there:
"We've obviously been in a weird transition period for a little while. That is no secret. It takes a little while but I feel like the ball, just like I was saying earlier with Paragon, the ball is starting to roll downhill. I don't want to speak for anybody and I don't mean this super negatively towards anybody that was in past management (laughs), I always feel the wrestlers want to go out there and kill it. But, some of the management guys were kind of slacking off. I wasn't really there for it so I don't know too well but I think they were just trying to get a pay day. As of now, the guys in charge like Don Callis, Sonjay (Dutt), Scott D'Amore, and everyone that is involved in management at Impact Wrestling, they really want to see everything work! They're really putting their heart and souls into the product and I think that translates to the wrestlers. I think that translates to the TV and the fans notic that and appreciate it."
