EC3 Talks Bully Ray's Rumored 'Goodbye' Speech, If He Knew Vince Russo Was Working With TNA
If he knew Vince Russo was working with TNA as a consultant until recently:
"I never knew he was working as a consultant, so I can't really answer that. But I do appreciate his kind words, as a guy who has seen a bunch of stars, especially guys like Austin and The Rock, rise [to the top]. To have him say anything kind about me is a compliment, but compliments are compliments, and that helps your confidence grow, but you just got to keep doing what you're doing. I wish I had time to talk to him, because who knows what I could learn from him."
Bully Ray's rumored 'goodbye' speech to the locker room this past Sunday:
"There was a talk, it wasn't that he's leaving, it was more of: 'If I don't see you guys in a minute.' But who is to say? I think it was more, [of a] precautionary [talk], who knows?"
Dixie Carter's table bump:
"Her preparation was: 'Let's do this.' The aftermath was: 'My back is broken.' That's about it, all the credit in the world to her for being a martyr for her cause, and putting her body on the line to tell a good story that people were truly invested in, and being kind of a catalyst to our new direction going forward, and making dynamite TV. She bit the bullet, when she jumped in the ring the ring, she flew too close [inaudible], but she did it, so [tons] of respect for her."
Impact's move to Wednesday's:
"First off, I thought Wednesday was a great night in the first place to have our shows. Especially considering a lot of the times we get hit by the ratings of big time NBA games on Thursdays, and the NFL is coming back. I wasn't completely shocked to hear it, but I also was not informed about it happening until we all heard it. But I think it's a great idea, I like it better, and I think with all of the decisions we've made the last couple of months, that have been sort of risky, they have all paid off pretty well, and I assume this one will too."
