Eddie Edwards Talks About Winning The ROH Championship

  • Share

New Ring of Honor World Champion Eddie Edwards appeared this past Monday on the Monday Night Mayhem radio show, talking about winning the title this past weekend, the company, and more:

His reaction on becoming the new ROH World Champion after defeating Roderick Strong at Ring of Honor’s “Manhattan Mayhem IV” this past Saturday night in New York City and why he describes that moment as “a surreal feeling”: “It’s still sinking in now. I’m still getting text messages and calls. When I heard that three count, and just to see that crowd, and hear and feel what was going on. People are saying that the building was vibrating, and it’s crazy to think about that it was something that involved me. It was a surreal feeling, and it still is.”

His feelings on being Ring of Honor’s biggest social media story ever: the first Ring of Honor talent currently working in ROH to be trending worldwide on Twitter: “I know trending is a good thing. I don’t have a Twitter, so when (Dave) Lagana told me I was trending, I know it’s a good thing. It is an honor, especially with everything going on in the world today, and to be the first one on the roster, that’s always quite the accomplishment. I’m proud of not just myself, but for Ring of Honor as a product and the company.”

With the challenges and challengers already lining up at Edwards’ door, why he believes that he is ready for the responsibility that comes with being the ROH World Champion: “I am ready. Being put in a situation to wrestle for the championship, if you come out on top, you have a lot of responsibility, considering the guys who had the championship in the past. I have to do this thing right and prove that I’m worthy of it. I’ll defend this seven days a week and twice on Sunday if need be. I just have to go out there and be ready for anything.”

Why it is his mission statement to represent ROH well as its World Champion and to show why Ring of Honor is “the best wrestling in America”: “It’s an enormous challenge with a company like Ring of Honor, and now for me to be champion and representing the company the way I am, it’s a huge challenge. I know I have to go out there and perform the best, I have to be the best on each and every show, and it’s not at just Ring of Honor. It’s at every place that I go. I’m representing Ring of Honor. I need to show what I can do and and show people not only why I’m the champion, but why Ring of Honor is the best wrestling in America.”
