On teaming With Matt Morgan: "Don't know, it was a little hard to pull off because Matt is this unstoppable monster. I'm just this small guy. Matt would just look stupid if I just keep costing him all of these wins. I don't think it went the way they planned it. I don't know if this didn't go the way they planned or if they just didn't think about how long they could keep this up. It just gets to the point where you think, how long is Matt going to stick with this guy that isn't winning.
"We were tagging against Chavo and Hernandez. I think they used me as a fall guy to keep Matt Morgan protected."
On the negative rumors about TNA contracts: "I had a great contract. I got a monthly salary and a bonus whenever I did wrestle. So yeah, I had a great contract. They said, "Hey, I want to pay you" and I said, "Great, I like getting paid."
On his release from TNA: "I knew there had been some office cuts and to be honest, I knew after the Matt Morgan stuff as they used me so sparingly. I think I did a PPV match that was unannounced. I did the referee stuff with the Knockouts. Then I did the random X-division 3-way match so. When I wasn't being used, I was at home collecting paychecks, so I kind of knew that this was too good to be true. They are paying me to sit at home for months now.
"Part of me said, I know Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff like me so there's some pull there so maybe they are waiting to come up with something for me. I got the hint myself when I was just sitting at home getting paid."
On being notified of his release: "Al Snow called me and said "This isn't anything against you or your work, this is just budget cuts". I know they are on the road now and that's much more expensive. I think they are just trying to make the company as profitable as possible.
"It was a decision they had to make. They had to cut guys without affecting the current storylines. I'm not bitter about it. I understand why. I don't have anything bad to say about anyone there. It's just a business thing."
