 oVe having bad luck getting national exposure before now:

AEW Dynamite Results 4/21/21 Conti vs Shida, Hangman vs. Starks, Allin vs Jungle Boy, and more

"I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of Impact Wrestling. As far as us being on the cusp and having it taken away, that actually has been the story of Dave and Jake Christ. It has always been taken away. Whether it has been injuries or whatever it may be, that is the cards that were dealt to us. To be completely honest, I'ma ctually very happy it took us 15 years to get to this point. My brother and I, and Sami, are polished to the point that people can see that these guys are no joke."


Rumors of his retirement:

As far as that goes, I was doing a thing with my home town promotion Rockstar Pro. I was doing a retirement tour there. But, that was the only place I actually announced it. I was getting ready to have my second child so I wanted to take time away from the business. I wanted to do things right the second time around. The first time, I missed so many things. I never really planned on retiring. I planned on coming back. It all depended on my daughter and how she grew and became independent as a child."


Comparing oVe to the Fabulous Freebirds:

"There is. I think me and Sami kind of said it as a joke but if you look at it, there are a lot of similarities! (laughs)"


Changes backstage at Impact:

"I can't complain at all. I'm very happy with everything I've been a part of. As far as changes, I don't know what is going on. What I know is what I'm doing as far as wrestling goes. Does that make sense?"


oVe's plans when Impact returns to Orlando in January:

"As far as us going forward, you'll find out why we are Ohio Versus Everything and why it is us versus everything. We bring a different flavor, a different taste as far as Impact Wrestling goes. We are, we ARE the best trios hands down. I'll put that up against anybody. As far as what is to come, we are just scratching the surface!"
