PCO shocked Ring of Honor fans when he debuted for the promotion as a new member of Marty Scurll’s Villain Enterprises in 2018. The 54-year-old had interest from Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks who were working to bring AEW to life at that time.

PCO sat down with Wrestling Inc. for a new interview. The former ROH World Champion recalled he had talks with both ROH and AEW before ultimately opting to sign with ROH, which was overseen by Marty Scurll at the time. Check out the highlights from the interview below.

“When AEW started, I was so confused. I was talking to Marty [Scurll] on one side, which was ROH, and I was talking with Cody [Rhodes] and the Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) on the other side.

“I went with kind of security so to speak. I didn’t know Tony [Khan], I didn’t know how much time he would be willing to invest. They didn’t have a TV deal back then. They had a few pay-per-views lined out.

“I had to make the best decision for myself. I thought that was going with ROH because Sinclair was behind it.”

PCO was brought over to Impact Wrestling along with other members of the Honor No More stable after ROH went on hiatus. PCO gave JONAH his farewell match in Impact Wrestling as well.
