Being granted the Palm Strike finish from Jushin Thunder Liger:
"Liger is my favorite wrestler of all time. He's what I aspire to be as a professional wrestler. He is the guy I look to as what a professional wrestler is. Just look at his career accomplishments and all the stuff he's done. He's still doing it, he's like over 50 and still doing it at a high level. It is an honor to spend time with him and learn from him and have him pass down his Palm Strike to me."
Chris Jericho taking a shine to him:
"Oh, Jericho's awesome! (laughs) It is funny how things turn out. I started getting a ton of notifications on Twitter. Jericho was at home and Ring of Honor happened to be on. I think he saw the match with me and Bob Evans from Toronto in Ring of Honor. He didn't know who I was but he tweeted about liking this Cheeseburger guy or "This Cheeseburger guy is my new favorite wrestler." People started tagging me in the post! All of a sudden, my Twitter was blowing up. People were texting me saying, "Go to Twitter! Jericho's taking about you!" I was like, "What?" (laughs) I sent him a message thanking him for the shout out. He invited me on his podcast and we actually did a Talk is Jericho show together."
Catching up with Jericho at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom:
"That was cool. I hadn't seen him, I think, since the podcast. So, it had been like 2 years since I had seen him? We got the chance to sit down and talk. Another thing, he posted a video asking his kids who their favorite wrestler is and they said "Cheeseburger!" I think Ring of Honor even sent his kids some T shirts! (laughs)"
