Eric Young on the reaction to his TNA Title win: "It's been from all walks of life. Not just the wrestling community, but guys from other companies, guys that worked here before, guys that work here who weren't here, Robert Flores from ESPN, Michelle Beadle from ESPN, and all kinds of people reached out to me to say they were proud and happy for me. That's a good feeling. There is always going to be negativity and naysayers and that's part of being in a creative field, but its been 90 percent positive. It's amazing. It's overwhelming, really."

On what can be expected from him the ambassador of TNA Wrestling: "For me, it's more of the same. It's crazy to hear people say stuff like, 'Eric Young is quite possibly the most entertaining wrestler in the world today.' There is nothing more important to me than that. Wrestling is about entertainment. Whether you're entertaining people with physicality or comedy or verbiage or emotion or characterization or whatever it is, the name of the game is entertainment. It's a television show and people are watching it because they want to be entertained. So to be held at that level and regarded in that way is the biggest compliment I could get. It's not just the fans, it's my peers and people I work with. It feels like the lifetime achievement award. It's cool. I'm not going to win the Nobel Prize, but this as close as its going to get."

On comparisons between his TNA Title win and Daniel Bryan's WWE World Heavyweight Championship win: "I definitely see the comparisons. Like you said, we both have sweet beards, we both won two matches, we're both world heavyweight champion, and I don't think either of us are prototypical champions. That's what makes us special. Anytime someone wants to make a comparison between me and Daniel Bryan, go ahead and knock yourself out. He's a super talented guy. I never met him personally, but I know lots of guys that know him and he's a nice guy. I listened to his interview on Steve Austin's podcast and he sounds like he's a cool dude. Anytime anyone wants to compare me to him, they can go right ahead."
