His thoughts on facing Michael Elgin: "As far as (Michael) Elgin is concerned, he's been doing some really good things in Ring of Honor. After I beat Jay Lethal, it's definitely a challenge I'm looking forward, to put all the claims that he is the next Ring of Honor World Champion to bed."

Why it's important to "make things right" for Ring of Honor's future iPPV's, beginning with "Glory By Honor XI": "I think it could work if they do it right. I'm not really a company guy. I don't care if they get mad at me. I know there has even been issues about some guys saying stuff on Twitter that the company didn't like, but Ring of Honor needs to step up and make things right. I think iPPV is a great way to make things work if they can actually figure it out and make it work. They promised us this time it was gonna work, that all the mistakes of the past have been studied and learned from, which I hope is true, but I can't do anything about this other than have great matches. Every guy on the roster knows that, so this is on their part."

Much more is contained in Kevin's exclusive interview with Monday Night Mayhem, including his candid thoughts on how he believes Jim Cornette has ruined Ring of Honor (and why, if given the opportunity, he would like to face him at "Final Battle" this December), being a "fighting champion," what he expects the crowd reaction to be in his home country of Canada when he squares off with Michael Elgin at "Glory By Honor XI," what S.C.U.M. truly stands for, his relationship with the new ROH World Tag Team Champions Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs, how Ring of Honor is different as a company with Sinclair Broadcasting at the helm, why he would like to see Steve "Mongo" McMichael join ROH, plus so much more!
