being and I'm not sure if there are regrets there and I give people credit for trying and I'm grateful for the opportunity I had and to the fans that that jumped on board and thought it was a foregone conclusion, thank you to every single one of them. Sometimes you can lead to horse to water but they are too dumb to drink it.
What can Ring of Honor do to get there momentum back: First thing is expectation or desires of the network. Sinclair broadcasting owning the property of Ring of Honor has motivations on where there position is on their platforms and hoping what they can get out of it in terms of advertising and sales and what not on the actual program on the air. Are they satisfied with it? Does the live attendance at house shows even matter? I've been gone out of Ring of Honor for just about three years and to be honest, I do not have any insight on what the end game result of this is in terms of "Why is this on the air?" and "What are we trying to sell?" and "How are we going to sell it?" I couldn't tell what their ad people are looking for.
Whether the WWE Performance Center helps or hurts independent wrestling: You know it's hard to find something that it's being used to groom the future of WWE; it's hard to find fault in that. Whether or not it hurts independent wrestling remains to be seen. Are they going to find guys from the independents and take them exclusively from the independents or is it going to be what it appears to be which is combination of upstart and stand out talents from the independents and combine them with great athletes and I've been fortunate to work with WWE on a couple of occasions and seen some of the talents that have gone to these camps and let me tell you, there all American wrestlers from Division 1 schools that are getting looked at and there are guys from independent shows from right around the corner that you never heard of being looked at as well. Does it hurt independent wrestling? I do not know. I think when WWE and the numbers on television are doing well; independent wrestling is doing well too. The Performance Center is particularly a baby at this point. We are not sure what it is going to morph into as time goes on, remains to be seen.
