"There was never any heat. There was never any heat with someone that matters inside the company. There was heat with one guy that isn't even allowed to enter the locker room. I didn't leave the company in an unprofessional way. If I did, Joe Koff wouldn't welcome me back with open arms. He's always welcomed me back.

"There was never any heat or lack of respect, the issue was because of the heat with [Jim] Cornette and a lot of people believed whatever BS that he was saying. Other than that I've never had a bad relationship with the ROH office."

After a three year run in TNA, King returned to ROH in 2015, which was under a new regime. He's gone on to win the ROH World Television Championship and the ROH World Tag Team Championship.
