Interview highlights courtesy of The Mayhem’s official correspondent, Paterson from New Jersey:
His thoughts on the last year in TNA, the company successfully acquiring in some of the biggest names in the industry of the industry, the “growing pains” that came along the way over the past 12 months, & his expectations for the promotion in 2011: “When you bring in 2010 Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Ric Flair, Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson, RVD, a lot of strong personalities to the table, you can expect if there weren’t growing pains, that wouldn’t be realistic. As 2010 comes to a close, I believe that TNA is positioned and has people in positions to truly do what they do best.”
The likelihood of seeing Jeff Jarrett vs. Kurt Angle in the near future: “Never bet against Jeff Jarrett, and never bet against Kurt Angle. You have not seen the last Jeff Jarrett and Kurt Angle, and quite frankly, I don’t think you’ll ever see the end of Jeff Jarrett vs. Kurt Angle.”
His message to TNA fans that believe the “sky is falling fence” mentality & that those that feel the company is always on the brink of a major defection or failure: “I think it has grown from a few critics in our fan base that was small back in 2002, and the fan base has continued to grow, and the critics have continued to grow. At the end of the day, I believe, that the critics that are so vocal, I think they’re more upset more than anything, because the man in the mirror often times makes you the most upset. That they have continued to call for our demise, that have continued to say at first you wouldn’t be around for six weeks, then six months. Every step of the way of our small successes, they’ve become more vocal & more vocal.”
