Abyss Talks Why He Didn’t Sign With WWE, Reveals Interesting WWE Plans For A Feud With The Undertaker At WrestleMania 23!

On a new episode of Jim Ross “Ross Report” podcast is TNA star Abyss.
Ross asked Abyss for a scoop on the rumors WWE offered him a contract in 2006. Abyss said John Laurinaitis, who was Head of Talent Relations at that time, offered him a job with an immediate main event push.

Tommy Dreamer worked beneath “Big Johnny” in WWE’s head office at the time and orchestrated as the go-between for Chris Park and WWE when Abyss’ TNA contract was coming up to an end. Abyss said he decided not to go at the last second. Dreamer called it “stage fright” but Abyss said it was just very hard to leave TNA at that particular time. Abyss said that he helped build TNA from the bottom, and added that 2005-2006 was one of the hottest times for the company.

He said, “I would rather have been part of something… versus taking the chance of going somewhere and just being a number.”
Abyss said he has friends in WWE and he’s incredibly appreciative for the offer, adding: “I’m sure it’s an amazing place to work.”

JR then interestingly asked what the creative plans for Abyss was. Abyss said he was supposed to debut at the 2007 Royal Rumble. From there he would have started a rivalry with the The Undertaker, which would have ended at WrestleMania 23. Ross said Abyss is an honorable man for choosing to stay with TNA, joking that most wrestlers would give up just about anything for that opportunity.
