The following is an excerpt from a new MMANews.com exclusive video interview
with “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Tito Ortiz:

On if he plans to ever work again with TNA Wrestling:

“Well, you know professional wrestling is what got me into wrestling
when I started high school. I walked into the wrestling room in high school and
thought, ‘where’s the ring at?’ but there was no ring. I didn’t really associate
collegiate wrestling to professional wrestling. When I did pro wrestling with
TNA, I liked it. I dug it, you know? I got a chance to meet Hulk Hogan. I hung
out and talked to him for a couple of hours and it seemed like he’s a normal
person just like me. We just go through a lot of different things, but we have a
lot of similar things that correlate. Wrestling was really, really fun. I digged
it. Dixie Carter was an amazing person to work with. Everybody on their staff
were amazing people to work with. The wrestlers are great guys. There’s a
theatrical side to it that I loved of course, but there’s a competitive side to
me that loves to fight. If there’s an opportunity for me to do it again, of
course I’d do it again. It’s fun and fans got to understand that there’s a
difference. There’s a pro fighter and there’s a pro wrestler — we’re two
separate worlds and I don’t like to join them together too much, that’s why I
haven’t really got in and wrestled. I came in as a referee and then I came in
and messed around with [Quinton] “Rampage” [Jackson] and it’s all choreographed
of course, but my professional side right now is fighting. It’s my true goal. I
want to win a world title here in Bellator.”
