Ring Rust Radio had former TNA Heavyweight Champion, Chris Sabin on the show. Sabin had a great conversation and he opened up about leaving TNA last year and the reasons behind his move to Ring of Honor. He also talked about his recovery from neck surgery.

The full interview can be found at this link. Below are the highlights.

On leaving TNA in 2014:

Basically my decision was to work anywhere that was willing to give me work or work anywhere they were willing to pay me. ROH and I made contact and worked something out. I do have a little bit of history there, but not as much history as most of the guys that have worked there throughout the years. I have worked there sporadically through the last ten years or so. I enjoy ROH and they have a really great crew. Their production is getting much better and the locker room has so much passion. People will say this locker room has the most passion or this one does, but I can fully and confidently say ROH really does have the most passionate locker room I have ever been in. That has a lot to do with it, and you want to surround yourself with like minded people that love the business as much as you do.

Recovering from neck injury:

I am doing OK and getting better. I have a few things going on outside of wrestling right now, but probably start wrestling again sometime next year I imagine. I want to take it easy and fully heal up. I had a pinched nerve in my neck that had a disc bulging out and pinching it. I was getting the symptoms down my arm and everything and that’s just not fun when you’re getting numbness and pins and needles down your arm and hand and fingers with no feeling. I just want to make sure I am 100 percent fully healed before I come back and get in the ring. Wrestling isn’t an easy business on your body and I want to take care of my health long term.
