Fandango says that he’s hoping to sign with a new promotion soon, and looks to retire in the next couple of years. The WWE alumnus, who is now working as Dirty Dango on the independent scene, answered questions during a virtual signing for Asylum Wrestling. You can see some highlights below, per Fightful:

On his wrestling plans: “I’m doing well man, yeah. I’ve been wrestling a lot of shows so I’m a little banged up. You’ve gotta grind on the independent scene, but I think I’ll be landing in a company in the next few months, hopefully, so I can slow down the schedule a little bit. I think I’ll be wrestling in Florida in December. Not really sure which part of Florida but I think I’ll be down there in December. “

On whether he’s been in talks with AEW or Impact: “Yeah, I thought about both of those companies. They haven’t really reached out to me. But I’ve spoken to some other companies and other companies as well. But, you know, I think maybe in the next year so just kind of a character change, you know, by landing on a different TV show. kind of mix it up a little bit. I’m 38. I plan on retiring at around 40. So, right now, it’s pretty much just having fun and doing some independents and getting to see some of my buddies from WWE that I haven’t seen in a couple of years and if I end up on TV somewhere, then [that’s] even better, you know?”

on ROH’s hiatus: “Man, that was one of my, before I retired, one of my bucket list places to go work for, ROH. Obviously, I grew up watching them and I was with WWE for 15 years. So obviously, I couldn’t go and work for them. But yeah, it’s sad, man. When anybody loses their job or gets furloughed or whatever, it’s sad because this is how we make a living. Hopefully, they come back in April or May and regroup and get their finances straight.”
