Matt Sydal, formerly WWE superstar Evan Bourne, says he is more than ready to compete with the best in the industry since his departure from the biggest wrestling promotion.
He spoke to Rodolfo Roman of The Roman Show about a feud he’d like to have and how he is better prepared today, than he was when he signed with WWE.
Sydal was a guest, participating in the Magic City Comic Con at the Miami Airport Convention Center. He also wrestled on the Ronin Pro Wrestling show during the comic con.
Sydal is also working for Ring of Honor. He said when he was released from WWE, it was a time for him to work with guys he kept an eye on and to rekindle old feuds.
Sydal said: “Delirious, I haven’t wrestled him in eight years. It’s time to prove what I’ve learned, and he can show me things, too.”
He also said he learned the most from Chavo Guerrero Jr., when he was in WWE.
“The most fun I had working with was Chavo Guerrero Jr.,” he said. “That’s the guy I had the most fun with. He taught me a special type of wrestling. It’s something you can’t learn watching tapes. You can only learn it physically.”
Sydal also defended top indy superstar and former TNA Impact Wrestling talent A.J. Styles. A Japanese wrestler injured his neck when Styles delivered his finishing move, Styles Clash, in November.
“Anyone who says when you wrestle A.J. Styles to be careful is a moron,” Sydal said. “He is possibly the best pro wrestling at this very instance. You can’t deny he is the Top 5. It’s not ballet. I’ve wrestled him a ton of times. No accidents; no problem.”
