You had the one of the most memorable debuts in wrestling history, when you debuted in TNA, annihilating Kurt Angle which was then followed, by a series of epic matches. However from January 4th until your release it seemed like your stock had fell in TNA. Despite having great matches with Pope, AJ Styles, and Abyss. Were you frustrated creatively in TNA?
For sure. But I was still happy to have a job and be a wrestler.
Keeping on the subject of TNA. Are their any feuds you would have liked to have?
Vs. Bubba; vs. Joe; vs. MCMGs with Magnus.
Before you signed for TNA, there were rumors of you signing with the WWE. How close were you to actually signing with the WWE?
I signed the contract they sent me.
What would it take for you to return to TNA?
A lot. I don’t feel I could add anything to them now.
What went through your mind when Ric Flair compared you to Lex Luger when he first created Fortune? (That had to be the ultimate taunt for that moment.)
I thought that’s not what he said backstage. I don’t think it was his sharpest moment.
