- Speaking of Spud, he was interviewed for August's issue of Total Wrestling Magazine, is available now to download on for just £3 from at this link or via Google Play and the App Store. During the interview, Spud talked about TNA's detractors.
"I don't understand it, why do they want a company to go out of business? Everyone has an opinion, it's a free country, people can say what they want, within reason," Spud said. "When you watch a movie, do you care about what happened behind the scenes? Did you care that the main actor had a falling out with the make up lady? No. We are in the same business, we are both making and telling stories, but for some reason people find it more interesting behind the scenes. They say wrestling is fake but the Walking Dead is real? Would you care if there was politics behind the scenes?"
