For the best part of the past decade, Dalton Castle has been one of ROH’s most enduring stars. Becoming a mainstay during turbulent times for the promotion, Castle soon made his way to the top, defeating Cody Rhodes for the title in 2017.
Now, Castle has re-signed with ROH, despite his time in the company since his big championship win being turbulent at best. Speaking on the Wrestling Perspectives Podcast, Castle said the following about why he re-signed with ROH:
"I'm done chasing fame. I'm chasing happiness now and Ring of Honor makes me so f****** happy. It's one of the best experiences I've had in my life. I sit around with some of the most like-minded people I've been around and they all seem to have a good time talking to me. We have great fans and a core group of people that are working their butts off. I feel like they are some of the best talents in the world. It keeps me positive.
“I started thinking, 'what did I want out of wrestling when I started?' and I'm doing it. I'm traveling the world, there is a great audience, I have great people that I work with, and I'm happy. The Ring of Honor schedule also allows me to take care of these alpacas," he said with a smile. "As long as I'm accomplishing my goal of having fun and making money, I think I'll be alright. There really needs to be something offered that Ring of Honor can't give me to even consider [leaving]. Right now, my goal is to keep kicking ass and do the best I can in this direction and have fun."
