Getting back into the indies:

"I'm looking forward to this next chapter in my life. It's getting back to my roots since I started out in the independents. Professional wrestling is my passion. I'm trying to stay as busy as possible. I believe I can have a good match with anyone. It doesn't matter if they were on television the last 20 years or just an independent wrestler coming up through the ranks."

How he changed mentally after getting injured in 2010 and 2011:

"It was probably mentally and physically the toughest thing I've ever had to go through in my entire life. I was wrestling for almost 11 years straight up until that first injury then all of a sudden I was sitting at home not doing anything, not even being able to walk. I was pretty apprehensive for months about what I could do in the ring. I even did an interview not too long ago where I felt I couldn't do all the high-flying stuff I could do before my injuries. I was almost embarrassed when I saw myself saying that, it shows a lack of believe in myself. If I put my mind too it, and put the work in, I know I can be the Chris Sabin I was before the injuries. I know I'm stronger for getting through this."
