Zema Ion Talks His TNA Status, WWE, TNA Not Paying For His Medical Bills, Heat Over Fundraiser

Zema Ion recently did an interview with Quinn's AM Army to promote his upcoming appearance for West Virginia's Primal Conflict Wrestling's "A Night to Remember VII" on November 30th. Here are some notes from the interview:

- He confirmed that he's still under contract to TNA for "quite a while," but is free to take whatever outside dates he wants to right now. He admits that he hasn't had much communication with TNA in recent months.

- He said that he thankfully he doesn't have cancer as his doctors initially thought.

- On the controversy over his fundraiser for his medical bills, he said that he never expected TNA to pay his medical bills because he's an "independent contractor," and he knows how that works.

- Someone at the TNA office got mad at him for making the company look bush league with the fundraiser, but he told them flat out he needed the money and that was the reality of the situation.

- His girlfriend actually started the GoFundMe account and since she doesn't know much about wrestling, she didn't realize the political problems that would potentially arise because of it and how it could affect his TNA career.

- He said that even though he didn't get anything close to the $30,000 needed, he was still overwhelmed by the fan support and the money he did get helped a lot.

- He would like to go to WWE one day, but is happy with where he is now.
