On Whether or Not TNA Wrestling is Profitable:
Has been for years, absolutely.
On the People Who Claim that TNA Wrestling is Unstable:
The thing is, I totally respect that fact. Because as a businessperson, you look at the odds of any startup business lasting more than five years, the odds are extremely against it. And in the early years, no, we weren’t making money, and that was a completely legitimate question. But as time has gone on, we’re seen in more than 100 countries worldwide, translated into 14 languages, JAKKS with our action figures, our online presence, touring over 100 events a year, internationally I think we’ve gone to the United Kingdom four times with a tour. It’s a great time to be in TNA and continue to expand.
On His Recent Championship Victory at AAA Triplemania:
It’s all part of an international presence. I guess you could say the title speaks for itself. The presence that TNA has in Mexico right now, it’s all a part of expanding the brand, growing the brand. And it’s the continuous evolution, so to speak, of TNA, and just broadening our reach.
On Working with Kurt Angle:
I’ve said this on the record many times: I believe when we step into the ring to face each other we bring out the best in each other. We’ve pulled out some of the hardest-hitting, best matches. It’s a healthy business relationship, and an even better family situation. But Kurt’s Kurt, and Jeff’s Jeff, and put us two in the ring and we’re going to have some fireworks, no doubt about it.
