PCO is known as one of the most violent men in Ring of Honor, but he has a soft side too.
We asked PCO to SHOOT SOFTLY, and says some nice things about his fellow wrestlers, and some of his rivals from past -- specificially his oft-overlooked WCW and ECW days!
"Always had, I think we always had great matches together. I don’t know what they’ve become today, but I’ve got just good things to say about them. We did great."
"Oh, man. Man, Stevie Ray is one of my best—I wouldn’t say my best friend, but my time in WCW, Stevie Ray was probably the guy that I got along with the best with. Then I went to a couple of foreign tours with him and he’s just a great dude. Was great in the ring. Booker is so talented. I got along great with Booker as well. I just ended off on more of a personal note with his brother. But, they’re both just positive. Incredible. Probably one of the best tag teams ever to perform in pro wrestling.
"Yeah. He was cool. He was part of one of my tryouts. He was also, when I got hired for a little while by ECW, he was the producer or the guy that helped out for me when I had a Championship match there against Justin Credible, with him and Rhino. I worked him a few times or… No, we were together in MLW, the year 2018. I might have been involved in one match with him in 2018. But, just positive things about Tommy. He’s the Innovator of Violence."
"You know, it’s cool that you mention that. You hear the Sabu stories and a bunch of guys, RVD, how much money he owed to everybody. Like, I’ve worked not a lot of times for him, but, he was going bankrupt, closing down the company and whatever. I got a check from Paul Heyman, a personal check of 250 dollars. I open up the envelope. I see it, “Oh, I don’t think he had the reputation to send out extra money after shows or whatever.” So, I never understood that. But, that really striked me hard. In a way, I never expected that. For me that’s why I always respected him, you know? He was cool with me.
