Caprice Coleman Doesn't See Mass ROH Departures As Anything New

Caprice Coleman was recently interviewed by Interactive Wrestling Radio on Wrestling Epicenter. You can see highlights of the interview below, and the full interview at this link.

On the possibility of Cody, Young Bucks, & the Rest of the Elite Leaving ROH:

Cameron Grimes Won't Let Virgil In On Any Of His Cheddar, Thanks Ted DiBiase

"If we had this conversation a year ago, the conversation would have been about Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O'Reilly... Kevin Steen at one time. All these guys and yet we still continue to roll. We always look at a brand and say "The core of the brand is this" or "The core of the brand is that" and the core of the brand always seems to be picked up or goes sooner or later, and it still isn't clear that they'll (The Elite) go but just to answer your question, there are so many other guys here and also talent all around the world eager to come and be impactful. Ring of Honor is not the Bullet Club and the Bullet Club is not Ring of Honor. Ring of Honor is a brand that finds the best talent and makes the best out of it." "I want to say that I approached them about it a couple year ago because I like to be an innovator in the ring. But, then, if you look at Ring of Honor, Ring of Honor is packed full of athletic innovators. I was to a point where I was like, "What makes me so different?" What makes me so different is like the tricks you have when you have the lion and the elephant, the elephant and the fish, and all these great things are trying to climb the tree. You know what I'm saying? The monkey looks the greatest. There is a whole lot of talent here but I feel if people knew a little bit more about the character of these athletes, they would be able to fall in love with them. I wanted to have a platform to where I could show different aspects of the athlete to where I could show more than just wrestling. Just bringing a different side of these athletes. Maybe there is a different side of their personalities that the fans can adapt to or exposing something about them that the fans never knew. Just being able to bring out a different side of these athletes that we're not able to show in the hour that we're given. So, they approached me with it a year later, "We've got this great idea. We're going to give you a talk show!" (laughs) I said, "Sounds awesome! Lets do it! Lets call it Coleman's Pulpit!" (laughs) I went along with it. And, I look at it as a blessing and, like I said, it is one of those things that is a dream come true and I didn't even realize it until I was doing it." He continues, "Even after some episodes, the athletes come to me and say "Man, this is great because now the fans know who I am."

On the possibility of ROH getting a basic cable TV show instead of syndication:

"I believe anything and everything is possible. I look at Sinclair and when I signed with Ring of Honor 6 years ago, they told me, "Hey, we've got some new owners here. It is going to be a slow ride but it is going to be a great ride." They've done nothing but that. Sometimes you get a company, they throw them out there to the wolves and it is too much, too soon. I believe we are ready for a TV timeslot for 2 hours. We're just waiting for that opportunity. Who is to say it is not in the works?"
