Being paired with Trevor Lee as the Cult of Lee:
"Well, Trevor is from about 2 hours away from where I live in Charlotte. I've known him since he was about 16 years old. We're both from the same area, we're both second generation guys. We're both tired of the bullcrap that comes along on the indies and on Impact. Some guys want to go out there and be fancy and do all the flips and all the cool spots. We're just going out there to bash heads and we're going to talk crap to you while we do it!"
Changing his look to fit the Cult of Lee persona:
"It didn't take much! Just stop shaving, basically! (laughs)"
The Cult of Lee's feud with LAX:
"Feud is a good way to put it! I like wrestling those guys. They bring out the best of me and Trevor. But, at the same time, we clash. We are oil and water. We don't mix very well. They like to talk trash, we like to talk trash. They like to fight, we like to fight. Hopefully it makes for great TV. It is just a stepping stone to what's next for me and Trevor and that is for us to win the Tag Titles!"
