On his transition from football:

I would say that basically the discipline. Waking up early, going to work out, and making sure you’re eating right, making sure you’re getting your proper rest, making sure you’re patient. That’s probably the biggest thing that’s helped me out, thus far from football with wrestling.

On training under Mr. Hughes:

Wrestling was always something I always wanted to do. Ive been a big fan of it since I was 10 years old. I knew I was going to do it at some point in my life before it was all said and done I just didn’t know when that time was going to come especially after getting drafted and playing a few years in the NFL. It was always something I was going to do. Without trying to be repetitive, I just didn’t know when I was going to start. Training with Mr. Hughes was great. He is definitely one of the best trainers out there. He knows his craft. He knows his stuff. He knows how to get people prepared. Look at how many people have been successful coming out of his school. He definitely knows what he’s doing. Its been a big blessing working with him. I’ve worked with Delirious a few times, and Jay Lethal and the Briscoe’s, so all those guys were definitely helpful with where I am now at my career and thank them tremendously for it.

And who else has been instrumental in his success:

Those three guys (Jay Lethal and the Briscoe’s) were definitely a few of the people that have helped me. You definitely have Kevin Kelly, who has been really supportive since day one. You have Brutal Bob Evans, who has been a great friend of mine and he has definitely been supportive and helpful in my progression. You have guys like Adam Cole that I talk to when I need some advice. You have Bobby Fish, Colt Bower, George, I mean there are a bunch of names that I could throw out there but the thing about Ring of Honor that a lot of people don’t know is its different from a lot of wrestling promotions or at least I think it’s different from a lot of wrestling promotions because this is the only real wrestling promotion that I’ve worked for but we’re like a tight knit group here like a family in other words and we try to help each other out we always watch each other’s matches and tell people and tell each other what we could have done to be better and what you should have had done so I mean right there is one thing I’m sure every other company doesn’t do that’s why I believe we have the best wrestling on the planet.
