Mason Andrews Talks Playing The Harold Gimmick, TNA, More


Mason Andrews recently spoke with Keelan Balderson at Wrestling Truth about his TNA aspirations, playing Harold in the Daniel Bryan/Kane skits for WWE and more. Check out the highlights:

On his TNA aspirations: “I love working for TNA, I think they are a great company. So if the opportunity came to work with them in the long term I would enjoy that. They have so much talent. Obviously, the X Division is always stacked with great competitors. There are so many great matches that can take place involving myself and the likes of Kenny King, Sonjay Dutt, Petey Williams, Zima Ion, etc. Aside from that I can see myself not just in the X Division, but making the transition Kazarian, AJ Styles, and Chris Daniels did. Those three names alone are guys I’d love getting in the ring with. Chavo Guerrero and I had a great match on the indies and could do good business. Working with Joey Ryan on that level would be incredible. So the possibilities are endless there.”

On how the Harold gig came about: “You know, it was just one of those things that came out of nowhere. I got the call and had no idea what it was going to be. I did know it wasn’t going to be a wrestling role, though. Once I found out I was excited, and wanted to have some fun with it. I had no clue it would get as big as it did. I didn’t think any fans watching would even notice or care who Harold was. I figured a few indy followers who knew who I was might watch and say, ‘Hey, that’s cool,’ and chant ‘Harold’ at shows but it had a much greater impact than I anticipated. To the point, eight months later I still get ‘Harold’ chants at shows.”

On whether he would sign a WWE developmental deal: “The way the system is set up you have to up and move to Florida. Live there and not make much money hoping to get to TV eventually. You and 30 other guys all trying to earn a spot. I think I make more money where I am, so it would be difficult to make that move.”
