"That's an example of something people thought was a terrible idea. A birthday party with a clown turned out to be one of the most beloved segments of all time. But if we had four segments, four birthday parties, with four clowns, it wouldn't have meant anything. I think Vince (Russo) has this great…..his mind is a great source of wrestling stories, but I think you need that wrestling-centric force to oppose him, so that it doesn't veer too much off the actual in ring product."
If Impact will go on the road more often: "I hope so. I think that made a world of difference when we were in Fayetteville. The success of those tapings was a big reason why Spike really embraced this 'Wrestling Matters' campaign. We're dependent on Spike. We provide a good rating for them and hopefully it will continue to escalate. We need Spike to really help us. They saw the difference the change of venue made. I don't want to offend the people who show up at the Impact Zone, we appreciate it, but I personally find it to be an atmosphere that's not conducive to great emotion and I think the more often we can take Impact on the road, the better."
Jeff Hardy's condition and if TNA has recovered from his incident at Victory Road: "Jeff has been... he's been struggling for a little while. And I think it's important, he's got a new son... I think the most important thing is not when he comes back to Impact Wrestling, but that he takes care of those issues he's got so he can be around as a husband and as a father, and then once he gets those issues addressed, we'd love to have him back as a wrestler."
