Kazarian on ROH PPV this weekend, potential of ROH

Former TNA star Kazarian was on the “Busted Open” satellite radio show earlier today on SiriusXM. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On ROH’s PPV “Best In The World” and Bad Influence getting back together: “I’m so excited for the PPV. Ring Of Honor arguably has the best roster of just pure raw talented wrestlers. From top to bottom in singles, tag teams, heavyweights and lightweights. They’re presenting a really good product right now and throwing Chris and myself in there I think is gonna add a little extra to the product, and I’m really excited for it.”

On what influenced him to jump to Ring Of Honor: “It’s just a matter of wanting new challenges. 16 years in the business there is not a lot of things you can do that is fresh or for the first time. Knowing that Chris and I haven’t scratched the surface on what we can do as a tag team both in and out of the ring. Looking at Ring Of Honor and looking at the group of guys they got, everyone including the guys behind the scenes working so hard to make the best product possible. It was almost a no brainer for us to move on to that phase of our career.”

On if there’s anything left he wants to accomplish in his 16 year career: “I want to be the world champion. Whatever company I’m with I want to eventually be the world champion. Obviously the first goal in Ring Of Honor is to win the tag team titles. Being world champion is why you get in the wrestling business. It’s the top of the mountain. Set your goals as high as you can and work your way to achieve them. Wherever I am I want to be at the top. So yeah, there are things I want to accomplish in the business, but I’ve accomplished more than I ever thought I would. When you stop setting goals, working to achieve things and are just working for a paycheck because it’s your job, that’s when you probably should move on.”

On whether Ring Of Honor could be the No. 2 wrestling company behind WWE: “That all depends on things like the TV distributions, but that’s not in the hands of the wrestlers. In a perfect scenario, if the distribution were to grow for Ring Of Honor and if it were available in more regions, who knows? The wrestling and the product can hold it’s own. A lot of things factor in to that that I thankfully have no control over. I’m happy being a wrestler. That’s up to the powers that be and with the buzz that Ring Of Honor has right now, that could happen.”
