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 & why he describes that moment as “a surreal feeling”: “It’s still sinking in now. I’m still
getting text messages & calls. When I heard that three count, and just
to see that crowd, and hear & 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

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

With the challenges & 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 & 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 & 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.”
