​Tyrus Discusses A Potential TNA World Title Win, His Time In WWE NXT Prior To Release, More


Tyrus recently did an interview with Inquisitr. Here are some highlights:

On calling himself the ‘Main Event Playa’ in WWE: “If you look at the history of wrestling, what makes heels great is their ridiculous statements. Honky Tonk Man says he’s the greatest Intercontinental champion, would you say he was? Jimmy Hart involved in every finish, the guitar involved in every finish, DQ’ed every night and then he’d come out every night say ‘I’m the greatest Intercontinental champion of all time.’ Telling myself I’m the ‘Main Event Playa’ came from the boss, and you’re one decision away from being one. If you’re not shooting for the top, then what are you doing?”

His time in NXT just before his release: “As far as I knew at the time, it was a complete overhaul to get me ready for something else, but obviously plans changed. But as far as I know, the boss, Triple H, was a fan of our matches and feedback was solid. But I appreciated the chance to be a headliner, a ‘Main Event Playa’ so to speak.”

On potentially winning the TNA World Title: “For me, it would be complete redemption and there’s a lot of people that I would go out and buy a lot of crow for. It would mean that you’re the best at what you do and be seen as that; whether it’s TNA, WWE, ROH, New Japan [Pro Wrestling], Lucha Underground and all the other different bodies. All of those guys that have held the championship have been believed in and supported by the company. It would mean a lot to me.”
