In an interview with SportsKeeda (via Wrestlingnews.co), Erick Rowan said that he would never want to be the leader of the Dark Order faction in AEW. He also spoke about the possibility of going back to WWE. Here are highlights:

On a short film he starred in: “There’s a short film called “Tito” from Zelda Light Productions. Claudio Castagnoli is also involved with it. It’s about the American Dream. The story resonated with me. It’s a short film.”

On his Wrestlemania 32 match with The Rock: “I look at it as, they were in Dallas. There were 101,00 people. They wanted to give them a record of the shortest match in WrestleMania history at the time. I think that still stands. I’m not sure. So who is going to take the loss from The Wyatt Family? Braun Strowman, who was the undefeated Black Sheep or Bray Wyatt, the leader? Well, it’s obviously me. It was a fun segment. Do I wish I could have got a couple shots, a little punch? Yea, but the business called for that on that day. That’s what the business was. For me, it was better than being in my second or third Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. That’s the way it was, that’s what they wanted, that’s what they got, and it was a great experience.”

On if he would go back to WWE: “If the opportunity called for certain things and it was creatively beneficial to the both of us, absolutely.”

On if he’d want to lead the Dark Order: “The answer is absolutely not. To me, that’s what Jon (Brodie Lee) created. In such a short amount of time, he made it memorable. His legacy to that company is that and the TNT title. To me, just leave it alone. I don’t think they should go, but I don’t think there should be a new leader.”
