D-Lo Brown On If TNA Is Folding Soon, Droz's Accident Affecting His Career, Owen Hart, Russo
His thoughts on the financial state of TNA and internet reports of their impending demise:
"I think TNA is going to be around as long as the Carter's want it to be. That's the most honest answer I can give you. Her parents own the company and they have a ton of money, so as long as they want to keep investing in it, that company will be around. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks or anyone feels, or what people suggest. They are going to run it the way they want to and as long as they want the company around, they are going to be here. I put no credit in unnamed sources. If you put something in print and you believe in it, out your name next to it and if not, don't say it. I can guarantee you most of those, if not all of those unnamed sources aren't sitting there and they don't have knowledge of the day to day operations of that company. They are sitting on the outside and giving an opinion and their opinion is worth about as much they'd be willing to pay for it and that's about two cents."
The "Mass Transit" incident in ECW involving his long time friend, New Jack:
"Jack and I have talked about it. It was one of the craziest things I've ever heard of, it's one of the craziest things he has ever been involved in. I think it was just someone who, in terms of whoever that kid was, he was just ill prepared to be in the situation he was in and he was just not prepared for the spot he was in. I don't blame anyone, you know, stuff just happens. But, if he wasn't in the ring, maybe it wouldn't have happened. I'm not speaking ill of the dead, because the man is gone, but if he wasn't there, it might not have happened. Here's the way I look at it too, say you go to an NFL game and you're sitting in the stands, then all of a sudden the coach looks up to you and says, hey, you want to try this? Then if you go run out on the field and you get your wig split, who's fault is that if you are not prepared to play in the game? It's not the guy who hit you's fault, it's your fault for putting yourself there, and I've had that same conversation with Jack."
Working with the creative team of Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara during the Attitude Era:
"At the time, Vince was, I don't think it was technically called creative, but he was the head of the writing committee, for lack of a better term. So, he was in charge of story lines, and he would bring you the idea for today's show, and yes, I worked closely with Vince and Ed at that time. For some reason, Vince Russo was a big fan of mine. He liked the things I did in the ring and he enjoyed me being out there even though I wasn't the top guy or the World Champion. Given the situation I was in he liked my role and that's why they kept giving me more time with it. Man, it was so great to be out there enjoying that ride as the company went from getting defeated eighty something consecutive weeks during the Monday Night Wars to where it went. Russo and Ferrara were responsible for that and for me being part of that. I'm still friends with Russo today. I could call Vinny Ru today and shoot the proverbial spit, and just hang out with him anytime. He has always been a good friend to me and my family, and I owe him a lot.
