His return to the ring:
"It is definitely great to be back! It has been a while! Honestly, what got me back in was when my former tag partner when I was with the Thrillseekers in Ohio Valley Wrestling, when Matt Cappotelli passed away, a close friend of mine - one of the Heartbreakers, I think he went by Romeo Roselli in WWE, he said he was going to put together a memorial show for Matt with kind of an undetermined date. A lot of people said they were going to attend the show. Again, I left in August of 2008 and I pretty much haven't been in a wrestling ring since... Well, I was in one once but Mondo and Kenny pretty much did everything. (laughs) So, I was like, "I"m not really in wrestling shape. But, sure, I'll do it." So, I started looking around for wrestling rings here in Arizona. I live in the Southeast side, Gilbert, and there is a wrestling ring on the northwest side, which is really far for me. So, I got in contact with another friend of mine, James, who wrestles as Oliver Grimsley in CWFAZ. He was like, "Come check out our shows. We wrestle once a month. Maybe you could get in the ring and roll around before the show." Well, I went there on a Saturday and I realized they really set up the ring on an at hawk basis. They set up the ring, they start doing pre-tapes, they do the show, and then they break it down. There isn't really a lot of time to roll around and wrestle and get practice in. So, I said the only way I am going to get any real ring time is if I wrestle for the promotion. I said, "I don't care. I'll lose every night. I just want to get some in ring experience, kind of get the wind back, and get the feeling back." Ultimately, I've become a bigger part of the show and it has become something fun I can do on the side and kind of has lit that fire in me again about wrestling."
On the feel of Championship Wrestling from Arizona:
"Oh man, I dig it! Honestly, it kind of reminds me of Ohio Valley. Obviously, the production value has gone up significantly since I was there. I like it. They set the ring up, the guys go over their matches, you get to talk to the boys. It is a well oiled machine, man. You go down to the production meeting, they tell you what they want you to convey. I dig it. It is almost funner with the smaller crowds. You get to play with them a little more.
