- Speaking with WrestleZone, Quinn McKay opened up about the Ring of Honor Women's Championship Tournament and the growth of the division overall.
“We’re trying to put our best foot forward here, and I think that we’ve done a really, really great job,” said McKay. “And there have been a lot of criticisms about Ring of Honor’s women’s division for a really long time. A lot of times, not unwarranted. Sometimes there wasn’t one. And it feels incredible to know that, I can just feel that we’re building something strong enough now to stand the test of time.
“There’s so much thought and effort and love and care that’s been put into this. And I think that’s going to turn out tenfold, I really do. I think it’s gonna be well-received, I think people are gonna love it. and it’s exciting to have a strong women’s division people actually care about and that there’s a buzz about in Ring of Honor.”
- Speaking with Sportskeeda, Jimmy Hart praised today’s WWE Superstars for their athleticism and further stated that he would like to manage Baron Corbin.
"Well, I think a lot of the wrestlers now are very much athletic. You know what I mean. I mean they can do so many different things than our era, we didn’t do, we didn’t have to do really back then but it’s just so good that they got social media behind them now which gives you a little shortcut to the top sometimes I think if you got what it takes. But I love the talent they’ve got right now from top to bottom.", Jimmy Hart said.
"And we’ve got a great, training facility up in Orlando, Florida, NXT and that’s where a lot of young and upcoming superstars are coming from."
"He’s got the height, he’s got the weight, he’s got everything, he’s got the look. We just got to get him organized again.", Jimmy Hart said.
