AEW star and the number one contender to World Champion Jon Moxley, the "Murderhawk Monster" Lance Archer recently appeared as a guest on the Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast for an in-depth interview.

During the discussion, the AEW number one contender explained why his lone defeat to former TNT Champion "The American Nightmare" Cody didn't affect his momentum and spoke about being paired with Jake "The Snake" Roberts in All Elite Wrestling.

Featured below are some of the highlights of the new Lance Archer interview.

On how his one loss to Cody Rhodes doesn’t affect him: "Well, you know, it’s a fight. Everybody goes through ups and downs and wins and losses, bumps in the road, and I don’t let anything like that slow me down. I think there’s some people out there in the wrestling world, you know, fan base and whatnot, ‘oh. you lost. You lost. You lost,’ and it’s like so what? Everybody in this business has lost. Undertaker’s lost at WrestleMania, and that was never supposed to happen, but it did. Brock Lesnar, the baddest man in the business, he’s lost to some of the most interesting people in the world. So to lose a match doesn’t mean the end of the world in professional wrestling and absolutely didn’t mean the end of the ‘Murderhawk Monster’ in AEW, and actually, it just focused me more to push forward, push harder and become even bigger, stronger, meaner badder and kick more ass than I ever had before."

On his pairing with Jake Roberts: "It’s been awesome. I’ve known Jake for a long time. I’ve known Jake when he’s had some of his not-so-good times, and I know Jake now. He’s in a very, very good place, and when Jake is in a good place, he’s one of those amazing icons and legends of the business that absolutely always wants to try to help guys. And the fact that he is my manager right now and his ability to work with me in a very direct way and help me both wrestling wise and promo wise. One of the best talkers to ever step foot in the ring is Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, and he proves it every time he steps out there and cuts a promo. So for me to be able to work with him on such a close nature and for him and his willingness to help me and to help others, that’s what I’m saying. He does help a lot of the next generation talent, and if they listen to him, obviously, you have to take things from his perspective which is his generation and what he did and how he did it which was extremely successful and then apply that to a 2020 mindset. And if you can do that and you’re willing to listen to that, he can help so many people out, and he does and he helps me tremendously every single time we’re around each other."
