- Former WWE star Chris Masters who has been angling for a job with TNA, got a tryout at last night’s Impact Wrestling. He lost to Robbie E in a dark match. No word on if he impressed, but he reportedly got a big pop.
Masters has also wrestled for TNA’s sister promotion Ring Ka King.
- TNA star Devon discussed the breakup of Team 3D during a recent interview with Live Audio Wrestling:
“One of the things I love about this is that we’re able to get the opportunity to come out here and showcase our skills individually as opposed to being together. We know what we’ve got together, but what can we do individually? I think back in 2002, when we did separate for the first time in the other company, again, to me, testing the waters to see how it goes. I think we both learned a lot from that breakup. I think the fans take it in a little different light; ‘Team 3D, the Dudley Boyz, they didn’t make it, that’s a bad idea.’ No, it wasn’t a bad idea. Nothing’s bad. The fans have got to understand, nothing’s really bad when you do things like that, because if it doesn’t work the first time, you go back, you regroup, you do what works, and then you maybe come back to it. That’s exactly what we did. I think a lot of the fans have to understand that when we were approached with the idea, we felt strongly about it, because we have done everything there was to do.
“In every federation we’ve ever been in, we’ve conquered the tag team division, and there was nothing really left for us to do. We went to Japan, we conquered Japan. We went all around the world. There was nothing left for us to do. I know the fans live off of what we did yesterday, but the fans gotta understand, we wanted to be selfish in a sense right now. We understand what they wanted, which was us being together, but we wanted to take the limelight individually, as opposed to sharing it. I think that was a little bit of a hard pill for some fans who are very dedicated and loyal to us to swallow. What a lot of fans don’t realize, and I’m going to go on record in saying, was that it was more me than Bubba that really wanted to break up. I’ve always wanted to do singles; I’ve always wanted to test the waters. Whether I failed or succeeded, I needed to know at the end of the career if that was going to work, and I think right now in both of our favor, it’s working very well. For those fans that it was a hard pill to swallow, I think it’s gradually going down little by little.”
