It’s been a huge few months for Ring of Honor Champion Michael Elgin. It was just a few months ago when he defeated Adam Cole at the Best in the World 2014 show to become champion and achieve a long-time goal of his. Now, the Toronto-born wrestler is taking his championship back home where he will defend it against Jay Briscoe this Saturday at the Ring of Honor All-Star Extravaganza VI event which will air live on iPPV.
I spoke with Elgin about winning the Ring of Honor championship, how long it took before it set in that he was the champion, returning to Toronto for this Saturday’s show, getting into wrestling at the age of 14, traveling long distances for show when he was just 16 years old, already being in the business for 12 years while still only 26, the Michael Elgin Training Systems classes and why he became a trainer already, where Ring of Honor is now, the state of the indies, using social media especially now as champion, facing Jay Briscoe on the show, what he thinks of Briscoe’s promos and more including his Major League Baseball aspirations.
