Decision to leave TNA and start GFW:
"At the very end, I knew it was time to move on. I'm very grateful and thankful. The TNA fanbase over the years - very loyal and passionate. I can't say enough about my TNA years, but I knew in 2014 it was time for something new. With Global Force, the vision I have for it is - you know, people love professional wrestling. Some people call it a "dirty word," some people call it sports entertainment. It's all one and the same. I believe in 2014 professional wrestling, it's time to evolve. As the weeks and months get there, I'm gonna be very excited to share that vision. At this time, I'm keeping it very close to the vest. The journey videos that we're posting on GlobalForceWrestling.com and all through social media, I want to literally immerse the fanbase from day one. Yes, I've talked to a lot of wrestlers but there's not one wrestler signed yet. We're really close on making some talent announcements, but we're in negotiations on every level. With the way technology is today - can I share everything? I don't think that'd be very smart or prudent business, but I can share as much as I can for the wrestling press, as well as the Hollywood Reporters of the world and Variety. I've had people reach out to me in New York and LA that are in the television business, but they're mesmerized with the amount of information that we are sharing, bringing the fans along literally step by step in this journey, because they're a part of the journey."
Still having ownership stake in TNA:
"Yes, that's a hundred percent accurate, if you're curious. It is a unique situation, but professional wrestling is unique, isn't it? It doesn't permit me whatsoever (from starting GFW)."
