Ring of Honor’s TK O’Ryan recently spoke with¬†ProWrestlingPost.com, and below are some interview highlights.

On his initial passion for wrestling:

From a young age, I was exposed to that main event style of Ric Flair and the like, and I just fell in love with it right away. Then, I forgot about wrestling until I was about seven years old or so, and that was when I started watching it on TV regularly.

On the guidance he received from his early training:

I would say that Nick Steele is definitely interested in the physical aspect of wrestling. He really teaches the hard-nosed nature of wrestling. The hand fighting, the specific grappling and holds, he loves that stuff. It’s that old school gritty and grindy approach. Ryan Waters, he does a really good job of preparing you for the wrestling world. He is phenomenal in the ring and the things he taught me on days one and two of my training I still use today almost every single match I have.

On where the nickname ‘wildhorse’ came from:

The whole idea of being the sassy wild horse, originally it came from the outfits I tend to wear if you ever catch me outside the ring. I’ll wear some leggings and tight pants and very tight shirts, very snappy, let’s put it that way.
