Ring Of Honor World Champion Dalton Castle recently spoke with WSVN-TV's Chris Van Vliet for a new interview. You can see the full interview above, and check out some submitted highlights below:
Signing with Ring of Honor got him fired from his day job as a radio DJ:
"I went to the office and I was like 'I have an offer from a wrestling company and I'm probably going to take it. I just want to let you know it requires me to be on the road a couple of weekends a month.' They were like 'Yeah, that's cool. That's great.' I signed my Ring of Honor contract on a Saturday and came in Monday and got fired. I was told my position had been eliminated."
Does he think Velveteen Dream's gimmick is similar to his?
"I don't see that. He's kind of playing up a Prince thing, right? Is he coming out with Boys? Then alright, we're cool."
On feeling the pressure since becoming the Ring of Honor World Champion:
"Before I was Champion, it didn't matter if I messed up. I could go out there and if I pulled off a really great match, that was great, but if I didn't that was fine too because there was no risk. Now that I'm the Champion, I feel like every time I'm out in the ring I have to prove to everybody that I belong there. There's no room for error anymore. I have to be the best wrestler I can be every time I hit the ring because as long as that Championship is around my waist, people are going to be doubting me or looking at me or wondering why."
