Ring Of Honor announcer Steve Corino was recently interviewed by The News Hub, where he talked about several points of his career. You can check out the highlights below, and the full interview at this link.
Describing his time in TNA:
"Now when I was in TNA it was still in Nashville and very unorganized so you can't compare the TNA of 2003-2004 to what's now. No, I wouldn't have foreseen it. With wrestling like with life there is always the next big thing and you hear it and if it happens cool but if it doesn't then it's not. Ring of Honor could sit there and tell me that we're replacing Raw on Monday and everything like that and I'm like until I see it. I guess wrestling teaches you that but I guess life teaches you that. So I didn't see it but I think the wrong people were always in charge of creative. I believe if you're going to be an alternative to what the WWE is doing you have to be different. The six sided ring was weird but it was different. Now how do we capitalize that? We should capitalize on it this way. Why are we having guys write the show that were writing for WWE and then got let go?"
What he did after ECW, if WWE was an option:
"Actually right after ECW, I went to Japan and I spent from 2001-2012 there so 11 years, 79 tours and I worked in the office so when I was home I would work independents and Ring of Honor is just starting 2002. I was a bit player. I would always call myself a bit player. I would hit and run. I would do something with Homicide and we'd get half way up and I'd leave for 4 months. I'd come back for 4 months and it was always done by design because there would be no way I'd be able to keep up. I thought the guys from 2002-2006 were awesome the guys now are just. I sit at that table and I'm like man I am so happy I am sitting in this seat. But the independents were always a way to see talent especially recruiting guys for Japan and personally have been the same guy. Basically, I've always been the same guy. I'm easy going. I don't let things bother me. I'm just the guy that goes home and changes diapers and kisses my wife and we watch TV and stuff like that. I was always taught you have to turn the wrestler off and turn it back on. Tom Hanks isn't always Forrest Gump and he's not always the guy that had AIDS in Philadelphia. He went home and was a real person. So I was always able to separate that and I think it kept me sane."
