Davey Richards Discusses Not Being on Good Terms with Ring of Honor, His WWE Tryout, Going to TNA, and More
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.08.2014



- The Orlando Sentinel recently interviewed TNA wrestler Davey Richards who discussed his parting of ways to ROH, the American Wolves' tryout on WWE NXT, and more. Below are some highlights:

Richards on if he needed some convincing to go to TNA or did something else spark in him: "I actually wanted to go to TNA the entire time but Eddie was really adamant about finishing our commitment with WWE next. Once we got word they weren't going to continue our tryout any more, within 20 minutes we had a contract with TNA. That's where I wanted to go all along. As far as me continuing my career, it's been a back and forth thing with me for a long time. I've only know learned retrospectively that I need to find a proper balance. I've always said I love being Davey but I also like being Wes too. With TNA I can do that. To me, it's a win-win."

Richards on his experience on WWE NXT and at the WWE Performance Center: "It was great. We were brought down and put in Billy Gunn's class. He runs the advanced classes. It was fun and I can't say enough good things about everyone there. The place is obviously unreal. It was a good time but it was just different strokes for different folks. It was kind of creepy to me that everyone was walking on eggshells, everyone is really scared for their job. I don't know. It wasn't like everyone was having a whole lot of fun down there or maybe they're just nervous because there's a lot of eyes on you. Obviously, what they are doing has been successful. They're doing a great job with it. We were treated respectfully and we were taken care of. I knew then and I know now that their schedule is not for me. I'm glad I got to experience it but I'm glad I found a home with TNA."

Richards on his breaking up with Ring of Honor: "We're not talking. We're not on good terms. I have no respect for them whatsoever. I strongly dislike management there like with the exception of Jeff Jones who is a great guy. But the booker (Hunter Johnson) is completely inadequate at his job and he got his job more for being spineless than being talented. And the owner (Joe Koff) is even worse, he could care less about wrestling. He just wants to do television. To me, it's just not something I agree with but I'm not there anymore and they do their own thing. And for the talent and the fans I wish them nothing but the best of luck."
