PCO says he was indeed contacted by WWE but did not really have any interest. He said, “I had a long talk with Regal at BOLA. It was weird because we’re friends, too, me and Regal. So, we’ve wrestled in Germany together. We’ve wrestled in England together and then he was scouting talents at BOLA. Came up to me, we talked for a while, but it never came with a solid proposition or solid offer. I don’t know if he was there for me to ask or something, but in my mind, at BOLA, at that stage, I didn’t want to go to WWE. It was going to be either AEW or Ring of Honor.”
Continuing on, PCO talked about everything ultimately working out in the end. Admittedly, he said there was some confusion in regards to which company he was talking to. He said, “I was talking to Cody and talking to the Bucks and talking to Marty, I didn’t know that Marty had another year left on his contract with Ring of Honor. So, I was really thinking that I was talking always to the same group of people. But, in fact, I was talking to two different groups of people. AEW talks… yeah, and to be honest with you, I don’t know if he had a year left on his contract. I’m thinking that he had a year left on his contract and that’s one of the reasons why he had to stay there. But, when he re-signed with Ring of Honor, I think people were surprised, too, you know? They thought that he would really go and join his friends. ‘Cause I think he’s still pretty good friends with them. I think he talks to them all the time. So, but yeah. I think it was cool. I remember my first night and I will always remember when me and Brody King were introduced as Villain Enterprises with Marty. I think it was in Philly. It was pretty crazy. I see that gif all the time. We’ve been one of the greatest factions in pro-wrestling as far as I’m concerned, you know? We pulled it out. We had a great chemistry between the three of us. It’s a new adventure now.”
PCO is ultimately happy where he is now at 52 years old, you can see the entire interview below.
