WWE, ROH, and NJPW veteran, and Impact Wrestling star Matt Sydal recently spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can see highlights below, and the full interview at this link.
Comparing his runs with Ring of Honor, WWE, & his current run with Impact:
"That's the thing. I always love the locker rooms that I end up in. There is so much great talent. (In WWE) I had so many awesome matches with the Usos, Primo and Epico, me and Kofi tore it up for years. I've wrestled Chavo. I've wrestled Jericho! I had so many awesome matches there (WWE). In Ring of Honor, I had such awesome matches with Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles both before and after my turn with WWE. I mean, working with Will Ospreay before he broke out of England, working with him in Japan. Marty (Scurl), The Bucks! I've just been forever super lucky. So, in this Impact locker room, we've got some insane talent. Guys you need to keep your eye on are Desmond Xavier and Zach Wentz, the oVe guys are killing it. LAX and oVe had this insane feud! Brian Cage, Austin Aries, John Morrison (Impact) is returning from a secret location that may not be disclosed... All you can do is keep swinging for the fences. Whether it is good or bad, it all comes from a good place. I'm glad Josh (Mathews) thought these tapings were good. Clearly his spiritual path is right and he's got his third eye open. I expect everybody else to do the same."
His highly praised and clean win over Petey Williams at Redemption:
"Yeah, well, you definitely bet on the wrong horse there, pal! Petey Williams is a guy who made his career trying to break my neck. He made a name for himself. I decided that Sunday at Redemption, I was going to use him to make my stand in the X Division. You can be the champion - That's great. But, you have to defend your title. That is a defense I'm proud of and stand behind. My next challenger is the guy I won the X Division title off of named Ishimori. This is why I'm here! I want to be the apex of the kinds of matches. I want to be the circle that everybody has to pass through if they want to make a name for themselves. You know, good nice try by Petey. Not this time."
