"Technically I am already (Simon Gotch) because WWE abandoned the copyright last summer and I picked it up. I can technically use the name now," said Gotch. 

In the rest of the interview, Gotch spoke about his career in WWE, working singles matches in the independent wrestling, and the differences in his career post-WWE. 

Since leaving WWE, Gotch hasn't been wrestling as heavy of a schedule but has appeared in promotions in the United States and United Kingdom including Chikara and Ring of Honor.
