Richard: You’ve worked for TNA in several occasions, do you agree with most wrestling fans when they compare TNA with WCW in terms of the lack of leadership and older stars still in top positions?
Kash: I do. They just keep recycling the same people over and over and and don’t push the ones who have actual talent in the locker room. And unless they drastically raise their budget they’ll continue on the same path. They don’t pay like any other “it” company. ECW paid me twice the amount as TNA ever did and that’s the truth.
Richard: Staying on the topic of TNA, who was your favorite wrestler to work with in the ring, and who was your least favorite?
Kash: I’d say my favorite would be Hernandez. He’s extremely talented for a man of his size. Austin Aries would be my least. His arrogance with calling a simple 5 to 10 minute match was ridiculous. Like pulling fucking teeth.
Richard: Do you think smaller wrestler’s like yourself have received a bad rap with regards to not being as over with fans as larger wrestlers?
Kash: I think that in the beginning TNA showed the true talent the smaller guys had which made the show, then somewhere in that 10 years that shifted. As far as talent we have it. With bigger guys there will be one out of 100 who have actual working ability. The thing I do know in this business is if the promoter wants you over to sell seats you will be. That’s up to the promoter. Politics is so crazy that if one person in the booking committee doesn’t agree, they don’t waste time and shit can it. There’s no hashing it out or working on it, it’s just done. They may bring it up again, but until that one pushes it you’ll be that shelf wrestler.
