Joining TNA after getting released from WWE:
"When I was let go, I had my mind made up that I was going to TNA already. You don't know if things are going to work or not, but in a short amount of time, when you say TNA, you think EC3. You think Tyrus."
Does he see himself in the ring five years from now:
"Oh no, daddy won't be wrestling in five years."
The cancellation of his Global Force Wrestling appearances last month:
"I was confused as to why I was asked not to do the shows. TNA said I could work wherever I want with the exception of companies with TV. When it was explained to me, I talked with Jeff to let him know, and no one really smartened me up. When he came walking onto TNA, I was like, 'What... the hell?' Immediately one of the reps came up to me and said, 'You can work his shows now.' I told him it was very important that you get away from me right now. I was hot."
