New Ring of Honor Champion Dalton Castle recently spoke with Ring of Honor’s website and below are some interview highlights:
ROH: What are your thoughts on the newly designed belt?
DC: I think it looks fantastic!
ROH: How did you celebrate your victory?
DC: I flew to Cabo, spent three full minutes of uninterrupted eye contact with a mini horse and then ordered many drinks with tiny umbrellas.
ROH: What did you learn from your first world title shot, against Christopher Daniels in April?
DC: That no one person or moment is meant to be taken lightly. Anything can happen in that ring and to be a champion you need to be prepared for everything. Also it’s very important to stay limber.
ROH: When you first started in ROH, a lot of fans and pundits recognized how entertaining of a performer you are, but I don’t know that many saw you as a future world champion. Did you always believe you could be where you are now? Or was there a moment in ROH when you realized that you have what it takes to be world champion?
DC: No, I never doubted my abilities. I belong in a pro wrestling ring and knew if I just continued to be fearless I would be able to be myself and move up. It wasn’t a moment that I started to see ‘I have what it takes,’ it was more I noticed others started to see what I already knew.
