On Possibly Being a Multiple Time TNA World Heavyweight Champion
I do want to be a multiple time champion. My first run was eight months long, but I want to be the top guy again. To main event pay-per-views again and be the bigger star once more. With the title you become a household name too. Hopefully I will get it again and have another good run with it, compete in main events and be in some top storyline situations.
On Taking iMPACT Wrestling on the Road
I like it and believe myself and others can become bigger, well known names by going on the road with the TV tapings. Going on the roads was a huge, major step for our company. We have only kind of got the ball rolling. We will be concentrating on perfecting it to make the show bigger and better. I think company and brand awareness is our next big step. I believe in our product and roster. It’s just now we need to let as many people as we can know who we are.
On Robbie E. Potentially Being the Next Big Thing in TNA
It is really hard to pick one guy, but I do like Robbie E. He is quirky and dorky, but I think he could be a money guy if he is given the right opportunity.
On Chris Sabin While He Was TNA World Heavyweight Champion
I am happy for him and always knew he had the drive to eventually become champion. Everyone in the back will tell you they want to become the top guy though. Many of them will not, but some of us have that extra something. When we [Beer Money] were fighting The Motor City Machine Guns in 2011 we all felt like we were World Championship material, but we were focusing on tag team wrestling at that time.
