Silas Young Talks Dalton Castle Feud, ROH Locker Room, More

was recently interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter for a new interview. You can check out highlights below, and hear the full interview at this link.

On working with Dalton Castle:
"It was a really good experience. It was a good thing for both me and Dalton. We were both kind of new to the company. Like you said, it helped define the character for both of us it helped develop our character because they are basically the exact opposite of each other. I think that is what was good about it. They were two characters that people could look at and go, "All right, well this guy is this guy and this guy is that guy." It was one of those stories where people had a side and they could pick a side. It was fun to watch. Dalton is a true professional."

On ROH having big characters as well as great wrestling:
"I don't know that it is something that Ring of Honor has to necesserilly improve on. I think the fans maybe haven't realized or maybe they slowly realize... Forever Ring of Honor was built on in ring talent. It was built on what happens in the ring. So, now you have some of the best wrestlers still puttong on the best in-ring product but they're also getting to see some great characters now. I think there's a good balance of it. I just think sometimes fans are surprised when they check it out because for so long, Ring of Honor has been built on being this awesome in-ring product. It's almost like an extra that you get to see some really great characters too."

 

On what makes ROH stand out from the rest:
"That's a good thing to ask. I don't know what it is. I think it is the fact of how the company started. It started out as just this pure wrestling company. It started out as just a guy, or a handful of guys, that had an idea and really wanted to bring something back that was special and different. The way it has just grown over the last 15, 16 years... I think that's what it is! It's the fact that it wasn't supposed to be anything and the fans and the wrestling world have taken it over and it has become something big. I think that's what it is. I think it was something that was not supposed to be #2. But, it grew into that."

 

On the ROH locker room:
"I think it is a good place where we all challenge each other. We sit down. We talk. Ideas just bounce off of each other. It's like, "What can we do to be awesome?" Or, "What can we do that's better than the rest or better than what we've already done?" I think it is a professional challenge, almost."
