ECW News: What does being in your first N2R singles match mean to you?
C.W.: A lot, N2R is our big one, it is to us what Wrestlemania is to WWF and to be in a singles against Super Crazy, the best Mexican wrestler on the planet (BAR NONE) is one I'm looking forward to.
ECW News: You have faced Super Crazy a few times in the past. How do you feel you match up with him?
C.W.: I like the match-up. Its a classic example of the collision between airborne and infantry.
ECW News: How does your strategy differ facing a high flier like Super Crazy as opposed to someone who is more mat oriented?
C.W.: I try to go into every match with the same game plan, wear down a body part, but my matches with Super Crazy always have ending up with tables, chairs and us just seeing how we can use those things to try and get an advantage on the other, so my game plan will be the same but will have an audible when those factors are brought in.
ECW News: Who will between you and Super Crazy?
C.W.: I'm looking for a hard match between us 2 but I look for me to come out on top.
ECW News: What other match at N2R are you most looking forward to seeing?
C.W.: Steve Corino vs. Jerry Lynn (Double Jeopardy match also including Sandman and Justin Credible). I was in a 3 way dance with them not to long ago, so I know what they are capable of doing so it should be a good one and I'm watching this one closely cause who ever wins has got me waiting for them.

ECW News: In today's wrestling environment of high spots, do you find it tough to go out there and just wrestle a more mat based game to win over a crowd? What do you do to overcome this?
