On being a part of every Slammiversary PPV:

“I sit back all the time and think on it. It’s been an incredible journey. I’ve been fortunate to have the longevity. To be part of every Slammiversary; every year becomes more and more special to me. I’m really proud and excited about it. In a business where you don’t always get longevity, I’ve been with Impact since the beginning. Looking back at all the great accomplishments. Sure we’ve taken our bumps on the road but we have always come out on top and are now moving forward and doing big things. The excitement level is high right now because we are in a different day, a different era. I’m excited for the growth of this company in the coming years. Thank you to the wrestling fans who have stuck with us through the good and the bad. To those fans that walked away from us, tune in and give us another shot. I think you’ll be surprised in the direction and new vision. I’m proud of the Monster’s Ball and the history and legacy of it. To have a match named after you is something I’m proud of. I’m looking forward to generations ahead bringing new angles, new swerves to that match-up. My flight record as far as who I’ve had the honor to mix it up with over the years. I’ve been in the ring with some incredible performers, incredible athletes. From AJ Styles to Sting to Hulk Hogan to Samoa Joe. It’s been a bucket list of talent who I’ve been able to work with over the years.”

On teaming up with Hulk Hogan to face the team of Ric Flair & AJ Styles on the highest rated episode of Impact Wrestling:

“That was a big honor. One of those times where I had to pinch myself for a second. Being in the ring with two of the all-time legends of the business in Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair and one of the future legends in AJ Styles.”

On TNA creating some of the biggest stars of mid-2000s:

“AJ Styles was off and running, Samoa Joe, Abyss, America’s Most Wanted. Kazarian and Daniels. Impact did an incredible job of making new stars in the mid-2000’s. You see that evident today to see where these guys have gone in their careers. The development of wrestlers the last decade or so has been really impressive.”
