Matt Morgan Speaks On Missing Out On Inaugural Season Of Tough Enough, WWE Not Being The Place For Him, More


Matt Morgan spoke with Sitting Ringside with David Penzer about various topics. Here are some of the highlights (h/t Wrestling Inc):

On missing out on the first season of Tough Enough:

“I was given Jim Ross’s contact information from Vince McMahon and found out about Tough Enough. I sent in an audition tape to Kevin Kelly, but he didn’t turn my tape in on time for the first series of it. I then get a call from this agency saying, “Hey, we want you to fly out to Vegas to try out for MTV’s Tough Enough 2. I was picked for the next season, I was flabbergasted.”

On realizing WWE was not the place for him:

“So long story short, when I got my release, I got a call from Johnny Ace saying, ‘Look, we need to get the character off TV.’ Johnny said ‘Go to Japan for six months to a year, we’ll bring you back and hopefully everyone will have forgotten the character and we can do something new with you.’ I told Johnny cool and WWE sets me up to go to New Japan, got paid really well, but I got really bitter and pissed off. I then decide, you know what? I’m going to shove this up their ass and go to TNA and be ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan and show them exactly what they missed out on.”
