You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On being disappointed with his AEW match with Kenny Omega: “There is one specific match. I was super disappointed with my match with Kenny Omega because I had gotten so lazy and out of shape, we actually had to cut out so much and I didn’t perform like I should have. That was a goal I didn’t meet. That really should have been a breakout performance that I wasn’t in the proper shape at all. I got so blown up. That’s a regret. The only goal I had was to do more as a tag team with me and Angelico as TH2 and it never really got off the ground in the way I wanted.”
On his belief that he and Angelico were due for a push before the pandemic lockdown: “At the beginning, before they closed the borders with COVID, I think we were on the list to get a push. I just had this big fall off and wasn’t performing well. If you go to AEW Botches on Twitter, I had a million of them. I feel bad for Angelico because I feel I got the tag team off track. Especially when the company first started, they didn’t have many heel teams and we were down being the heel, I don’t want to say midcard jobber tag team, but they needed that at the time. Specifically me, I wasn’t able to perform that role and that’s when the de-push happened. I think we were, I don’t really talk to the office that much, but I think we were on the list to start getting feuds with the Young Bucks and Best Friends after the COVID shutdown.”
