Speaking with Sean Ross Sapp, Pillman reflected on the experience of wrestling "The King of the Mountain" and his desire to compete on more live events.

"It was great. I mean, talk about a capacity show. It was completely sold out. I think the building held about 3,500 people. We had 3,400 people there. It was just a great, great time to have some very relaxed matches with a nice length to them. You’re not going out there and doing a seven-minute sprint. Me and Jeff, we got to go for 10-12 minutes, have some fun, and work with the crowd. Obviously, there are meet, and greets going on at these house shows. It’s a great experience for the fans and the wrestlers without all the pressure of TV going on. So I think that might be a great place for me and Brock to cut our teeth and connect with the fans," said Pillman.

Outside of the squared circle, Pillman has moved back to Cincinnati and is excited about reconnecting with his family and friends, and the growth of his support system.

"Oh, it’s been great. I moved back home. I reconnected with my family and my friends, my support system. I met a wonderful girl named Kylie. She wrestles as well. She’s been a great support for me. I’ve surrounded myself with the business. It’s been great. I’ve never been happier. I’ve never been more focused and I’ve never been in better shape," he said.
