Source: SportstownChicagoMike Buda with SportstownChicago.com recently interviewed former WWE star and current OVW trainer Nick "Eugene" Dinsmore. Dinsmore discussed his character, his possible return to television, the drug wellness policy and his push to be the next Raw GM. Here are some highlights:
On possible return to television: "My legal team advises me that I can neither confirm nor deny that I am in talks with TNA and WWE at this time so take that for what it is. I can neither confirm nor deny the internet rumors that are running rampant that both TNA and WWE are chomping at the bit to get the best independent talent that you see today. The best free agent in wrestling. I can neither confirm nor deny that you'll see me on TV in the next two months."
On Bruno Sammartino declining WWE HOF: "…I didn't walk a mile in that guys shoes so I don't know what he's been through but I think it would be great for the fans, great for the Hall of Fame, and great for the WWE to really portray the legend, especially Bruno Sammartino and the great thing that he was and that he is."
On WWE drug wellness policy: "I think they're pretty much right on track with the Drug and Wellness Policy mostly with the equivalent to the other major sports of basketball, baseball, and football. I think years ago, as with all the sports the drugs and everything, people didn't know that much about them and didn't know how much they are bad for you and with the wellness policy the pure athlete, is just very good for the business I think."
On if WWE should allow Orton to participate in Raw 1,000: "Would the commissioner of the NFL do that for any NFL guy? I don't think so."
