Reports he is signed to Ring of Honor:
"No, that isn't true. I did do a tryout with them - I guess you could call it a tryout. They had the Future of Honor match in Vegas last September. I guess it went pretty well. They started bringing me in and had me working their shows. I had a good relationship with them and I still do. We never really talked about a contract fully. So, we're kind of just seeing how it goes. My character doesn't really fit into their storylines right now so they are kind of using me here ad there. And, I'm happy that we haven't talked about a contract because I've had a few opportunities with Impact and now AEW gave me the shot at Double or Nothing. That (AEW) is kind of my focus. That (AEW) (was) the place that I'd like to be most."
"I talked about the fact that I have a masters degree on Being the Elite. The character itself is absurd but the fact that I have a masters degree is even more absurd. But, it is true! I have a masters degree in History. I specialize in 12th century European History. I did my thesis on 12th Century Romance Literature in Germany, France, and England. I started wrestling while I was finishing my masters program. I wanted to finish that before I totally committed to wrestling. It is funny because as soon as I was done with the degree, I got swept up by WWE. I never really got to do the indies like I wanted to. So, I went right from college to being in WWE. It was very dramatic life change there. But, that is part of the character. I consider myself an existential dinosaur. We're going to get into that more on Being the Elite."
