Tracy Williams, a Brooklyn native, discussed competing at ROH G1 Supercard:
“It was huge for me. When I was a little kid, my dad took my brother and I to MSG for the first wrestling show I’d ever seen. Wrestling in that building was absolutely a goal of mine throughout my whole career. I walk past that place all the time, so even walking in the back door and being in the hallways and locker rooms was crazy. Walking down that ramp and sliding in the ring to go right into a standoff with Minoru Suzuki was such a surreal and fun experience.
Seeing Ring Of Honor go from this small, underdog of a company running their shows out of the Hammerstein Ballroom, to going around the corner in the most famous arena in the world is incredible and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Tracy Williams on advice from Cesaro:
“One of the people who trained me in wrestling from Day One was Cesaro, and before he went to WWE his last bit of advice to me was just to wrestle as often as I possibly could. It might seem like simple advice, but at the time I was mainly wrestling for my home promotion. If I had remained complacent instead of getting into that mindset of just getting out there and doing as much as I can, I don’t think the sequence of events that led me to where I am now would have happened.”
The LifeBlood member also had a message for fans of Ring of Honor:
“Yes. I’m only just getting started. LifeBlood is only just getting started. Our work is cut out for us now more than ever. All I can promise is that every time I’m given the chance to do what I do in that ring, I’m going to bring the kind of fight that made me want to come to this company in the first place. Thank you to anyone who has supported me thus far, and if you’re not familiar with me yet, keep your eyes open.”
