In March, ROH announced Castle has re-signed with the company.
ROH centered an angle around Castle potentially leaving the company, with him saying he would exit the promotion if he couldn't beat Josh Woods. Fortunately for Castle, he defeated Woods in a Pure Rules match on the March 3 episode of ROH TV and then again at ROH 19th Anniversary.
Speaking on the Wrestling Perspective podcast, Castle explained his decision to re-up with ROH.
"I'm done chasing fame. I'm chasing happiness now and Ring of Honor makes me so fucking happy. It's one of the best experiences I've had in my life. I sit around with some of the most like-minded people I've been around and they all seem to have a good time talking to me. We have great fans and a core group of people that are working their butts off. I feel like they are some of the best talents in the world. It keeps me positive. I started thinking, 'what did I want out of wrestling when I started?' and I'm doing it. I'm traveling the world, there is a great audience, I have great people that I work with, and I'm happy. The Ring of Honor schedule also allows me to take care of these alpacas," he said with a smile. "As long as I'm accomplishing my goal of having fun and making money, I think I'll be alright. There really needs to be something offered that Ring of Honor can't give me to even consider [leaving]. Right now, my goal is to keep kicking ass and do the best I can in this direction and have fun."
Castle made his ROH debut in 2013, becoming a regular for the promotion in 2015 after competing in the Top Prospect Tournament.
He won the ROH World Title at Final Battle 2017, and wanted to drop the title early due to a back injury, but it "wasn't the plan." You can find his full comments on wanting to lose the ROH Title before he was scheduled to do so by clicking here.
