Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Garcia was asked what he's learned from Jericho during their time together.

"The biggest thing with being with Jericho, he doesn't tell you what to do, he doesn't even really try to steer you in the right direction. He gives me the confidence to try. I'll see Jericho do things that other wrestlers would never dream of doing, they would feel so self-conscious doing. I'm like, If Chris Jericho, the person that beat The Rock and Steve Austin in the same night, who has been on top for 20 years, if he's willing to try this new thing that might seem goofy or intimidating to some people, why shouldn't I give myself, a couple years into the business, the opportunity to try something? Why am I scared to fall on my face? Why am I scared to fail? Jericho has tried things, it's the most random things, and it's gotten over. Why am I so afraid to try something that I want to do, I shouldn't be afraid to fail. That's the biggest confidence Jericho has given me, don't be afraid to try," he said.

On television, Garcia and Sammy Guevara have been disappointed in Jericho as he flirts with potentially joining the Don Callis Family.

Garcia will challenge Katsuyori Shibata for the ROH Pure Title at ROH Death Before Dishonor. Fans can check out the current lineup for the show by clicking here.
