"My dream when I was 14 was to wrestle full-time in Japan, for New Japan. But if in 2018, that wasn't a company that was right for me, then I wouldn't go. I'm not just there for the idea. This is where I want to be. It's kind of a double reward, in that it's something I set out to do, I achieved it, but then also I just feel so at home in the company," said Sabre. 

While in NJPW, Sabre has won the New Japan Cup and challenged Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. During the interview, Sabre discussed his match against Okada, coming to the United States independent wrestling promotions, and learning he needed to improve over the last several years.
