“Just when I thought my announcing career was long over, I am now announcing for three professional wrestling video-on-demand subscription services in Chikara, EVOLVE, and Beyond Wrestling,” Styles said. “Video-on-demand is the biggest game changer in pro wrestling.” said Styles.

The former ECW announcer said that his time isn't just being spent on announcing wrestling shows. He will also be busy selling advertisement when he's not on the mic.

“When I announce for EVOLVE next on Saturday, November 12 from New York City, the internet pay-per-view is going to be broadcast on Floslam.TV as part of a brand new subscription service,” Styles said. “That is just my weekend job. I still work full time selling digital advertising. I’m back to doing what I did in my twenties—I’m commuting from Connecticut into Manhattan to sell advertising during the week, and on weekends, I’m calling wrestling matches. I’m 45 not 25, but I’ve got more energy now than I did then and I’m ready to go.” Styles explained.

Styles had been a part of ECW from its inception in 1993 to its end in 2001. He had been a part of WWE since 2005, first working as an announcer and then was a part of WWE's digital media team until Styles was released back in August. Styles will call the action on next weekend's Evolve 72 & 73, which features's Matt Riddle.
