Wrestling Epicenter recently interviewed ROH's Rhett Titus. You can hear the interview above, check out the full transcript at this link, and see highlights below.
His new tag team "The Dawgs":
"Woah, woah, woah! It's the Dawgs! You've got to accentuate the "Dawgs" part. So, Big Dog and Little WIlly, we've been friends for a while. Took him under my wing at the dojo and that kind of thing. We've been traveling together and this and that. He gets very aggravated very easily. Early on, I figured this out. Just to keep myself entertained, I'd like to press his buttons. It just became this thing! (laughs) It got to the point where I'd start making videos of myself aggravating him. I'd put them up on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. They'd be like, "You guys should be a tag team!" All the fans started watching them too. We got booked on an indy tag teaming. Cary Silkin was there. He was like, "This is what needs to come to Ring of Honor right here." A few short months later, now we have "The Dawgs!""
Their ROH Tag Title Aspirations:
"I'm a former Ring of Honor Tag Team Champion. I'm trying to bring Little WIlly up to my level. Trying to get him up to speed with tag team wrestling. He doesn't have that much experience with tag team wrestling. Short little run with Cheeseburger but lets be honest, that's Cheeseburger. That ain't the Big Dawg! Last week, we wrestled the Motor City Machien Guns and the Hung (Young) Bucks. That's a good bit of experience to get under our belts. We're still a little wet behind the ears but we're getting there!"
His former partner Kenny King's TV Title Win:
"Good for Kenny! He got a shot at the TV title and made the msot of it. We're long time friends, go back years. I'm kind of sitting back and saying, "Yo Dawg, hey! When are you going to give me a shot?" I wouldn't mind taking a crack at the TV title! But, good for Kenny. I'm happy for him."
His feud with Delirious:
"That was really cool because it was what really put me on the map. Ring of Honor would always run New York City shows at the Manhattan Center shows and I'd never be on it, never be on it, never be on it. I kind of came to grips with it. For whatever reason, I was never on these shows. It came time for the Hammerstein Ballroom, I figured it was another New York City show I wouldn't be on. I remember going to Chipotle and eating like a house. I get back and Gabe (Sapolsky) pulled me aside and said, "You're on the shwo tonight! We're debuting you in a big way." So, i got to make my essential ROH debut with a character and stuff at the ROH debut at the Hammerstein Ballroom which was really cool. With Delirious and Dazee Haze, we got to do some really cool things like the vignettes, promos, and all that stuff. Up to that point, I had pretty much done indies and pre-show matches for Ring of Honor. So, I would practice promos. But, there was never a chance to actually do them. I got to do promos with pretty much everyone in the ROH locker room at that point showing them the Dazee Haze video. It was awesome. It was a great learning experience. And, it really helped put me on the map!"
A male's take on the Women of Honor:
"The Women of Honor always go out there and give it their all. I think sometimes there's not time. But, I think going forward, in 2018, they're going to be a lot more focussed on because, to be honest, the Women of Honor draw the best YouTube numbers. That's a big thing you've got to look at. If they're drawing this many people on YouTube, almost triple regular Ring o
