Ring of Honor Champion Dalton Castle recently spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News, ahead of his title defense against Marty Scurll at ROH Supercard of Honor this weekend, and below are some interview highlights.
SN: Do you have a chip on your shoulder when it comes trying to prove that to people?
DC: Yeah, I do have a bit of a chip on my shoulder. I believe that I am the greatest talent in the world right now. The belt, to me, proves to the world that yes, right now I am as good as it gets. I think the only thing that holds me back sometimes is I’m not marketing myself to the fullest that I could be. So maybe not enough people know about me. I’m not being seen on as many screens as I could be but every time I go out there, that’s not going to change my attitude. I’m going to still go out there and act like the world’s watching. I’m going to work my ass off to show that my heart’s in this 100 percent.

SN: We’ve seen the marketing and the exposure that the Young Bucks and Bullet Club have utilized to become the success they’ve become. What have your learned from being around them and seeing what they’ve done?
DC: First off, you gotta be super-talented. You’ve got to get a brother who’s on the road with you. And you have to document it and be super-entertaining and smart. Those guys are, beyond description, brilliant when it comes to exposure. They’re also entertaining and really really goof wrestlers. The Young Bucks are inspiring I feel like to every wrestler out there, to show that you can become world stars with just the use of an iPhone. They’ve created a following and it travels with them all over the world. It’s not just based on Bullet Club with them. They’ve helped raised that group a new level that it probably would have never have been.
SN: You are going to be facing Marty Scurll at Supercard of Honor. When is the last time you were in the ring with Marty?
DC: I believe we wrestled each other a few months ago in San Antonio, Texas on a Ring of Honor tour show. We had a singles then. When Marty came in to Ring of Honor, I was his first match in the United Kingdom. It was his start moving forward. He had a really good run in his first loop of shows for us and ended up winning the Ring of Honor Television title on the final night of the tour. Then, we crossed paths a couple of times throughout the year. And here we are, me with the world title and him coming after me.
