Former ROH star and current TNA star Moose recently spoke with SI.com about his ROH departure, his deal with TNA and interest WWE expressed in him. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On his deal with TNA:
“When I decided to go with TNA, it just happened that the taping was on Tuesday and I signed that day.
“I didn’t know how I was going to be taken by the crowd. I was nervous just because of that — it was a brand new company and you never know how they’re going to take you, but it didn’t take long at all for the ‘Moose’ chant to start. I saw everyone doing the fist pump and doing the chant and I said to myself, ‘I guess I’m home!'”
On WWE showing interest in him:
“I was grateful that WWE had interest in me. We’ll see what happens in the future.”
On leaving Ring Of Honor:
“It was very difficult to leave Ring Of Honor. Everybody that knows me personally knows I had a hard time with the decision. One of the reasons I wanted to stay with Ring Of Honor was because I’m so close with the guys on that roster, and saying goodbye wasn’t easy. Leaving was a really hard decision to make, but I have experience with that. In seven years in the NFL, I played on four different teams, so I’m used to packing up and going to a new team.”
