On the new changes to TNA and Impact Wrestling: "We're making some big changes to our show. I think over the coming weeks, you will hear more about them. But, we're trying to keep it a lot more real. We're allowing talent to call other talent out in an 'Open Fight Night' type of format.
"Within that, we have a 'Gut Check' segment. So much of what we do is finding unsigned talent. This is the real deal. These guys that we've looked at out there in the independent circuit and they're going to be on live television, giving them a chance to perform in front of a live audience and literally be judged to see if they deserve an Impact roster spot.
"It was interesting, because last month on our first 'Gut Check', we had this kid who we had high expectations for and he had an average match in the ring. But he got out there and cut this promo -- and I knew we were not going to offer him a deal. The vote was two to one against giving him a deal. He got out there and cut such an emotional promo, Ric Flair changed his vote in the ring.
"It went from me thinking, 'Kid, stay in it. You're going to have a future. You've just got to work a little bit harder.' He walked off that stage and then I was like, 'Well, welcome to the roster.' It was great. It was such a real, emotional spot for us and it just made us want to do more and more and more of this on the show."
