Being a heel vs. face:
"Well 90% of my career here in TNA I've been a good guy but I love being the heel. It's so much fun and I always tell everyone: it's a lot easier to piss somebody off than it is to make somebody happy. You can say one word to piss somebody off but you can take all day or all night time to make them happy. So it's more fun to play heel and to be the dirty cheater and to me it's kind of a lost art in itself because today the heels want to be cool and that's not how I grew up watching wrestling. I always saw the heel as the dirty cheater who gets away with stuff here and there."
Touring vs. TNA having a home base:
"It's not my call how we tour and all that, that's Dixie and her team, but to me, I always enjoyed having the home base and traveling out for the pay-per views to make them feel special and to make people want to buy a pay-per view. If I see everything on TV, why should I buy the pay-per views? So you should always make the pay-per view worth people's money. A lot of the guys enjoy doing a show in a different town every night and that's all fine and dandy but with the cost situation and everything like that it's almost impossible to do because it just costs so much money to put a show on week in and week out. Right now I'm very content with having a home base and doing each one of our big pay-per views on the road."
A possible reality show for him:
"I'm not really sure when it's going to start airing. I head back out to LA next week to talk to a bunch of different networks who are very interested in it and hopefully real soon we can get that on TV."
Younger TNA talent stepping up:
"Yeah I definitely think it's something that the company needs. For the longest time it's been guys like myself, Daniels, Kazarian, AJ, Joe, and all the guys that have been there so long and having to carry the company when other guys came in and turned around and left real quick and it's really good to see the guys who TNA are investing in actually starting to step up now and take on bigger roles which takes some pressure off of us. It also puts pressure on us because it means we have to step up with these younger guys stepping up so I think it's a win-win situation."
