PCO speaks about working in the G1 Supercard
It was the most important match of my life. Being at the G1 Supercard was like a WrestleMania for me. It was the greatest one because Madison Square Garden is the world’s most famous arena. And we know WrestleMania goes there every 10 years and being able to be there with Ring of Honor which is an upcoming, incredible promotion, and they have so much going on with them. There are new fans that say “this is my first time” and they say “there is nothing compared to an ROH show.” It’s been 6 years since a non-McMahon promotion has been in the garden. Being one of the main attractions on the show was pretty historical.
Choosing to work for Ring of Honor
I think it’s because we both choose each other. They choose me and I choose them. It was a mutual sense of feeling wanted a little bit. The way they entered all the negotiations was really, really professional. I had been in touch with all the other promotions and decided to go with Ring of Honor for the reasons that they were so professional in the way that they negotiate the contract, the way that everything was professional on phones and meetings, different points that make negotiation what it is. They said “we’re here to enhance PCO, Perfect Creation One, we want you to bring it from here and bring it to up there. We’ll never ask you to do something you don’t feel good doing. We’re here to help build you into something stronger and better. I felt like the way the discussions were going, they’re working hand in hand with their talent.”
