Bully Ray Discusses Singles Career, How TNA Can Become More Of A Household Name

The Big WrestleShark Show interviewed Bully Ray and sent over the following highlights:

BWS: This year you’ve broken out on your own as a singles competitor, how does this tour differ from previous visits?

Bully: Being a singles competitor is definitely different, especially when you’re used to being in a team for 15 years: it’s a different world out there.

BWS: Are you enjoying being on your own?

Bully: I am enjoying it, I never thought I would. I never got into wrestling because I wanted to be a singles wrestler, I always wanted to be in a tag team, I always knew that I wanted to have the most successful tag team that ever existed. I would never be so pompous or egomaniacal as to say we were the greatest tag team ever because I don’t know what measures greatness. But I can tell you we’re the most successful. No other team has done what we did, no other team has had 23 major World Tag Team Titles. Name a territory with a major set of tag team titles and we’ve won them. That’s it. Bottom line.

BWS: Do you think you could ever match that success as a singles star?

Bully: I don’t know if I could ever match that success because I don’t know if I have another 15 years left in me to accomplish what I was able to do: I had time on my side then. For those 15 years, I was doing it 300 nights a year, I dunno if I can do that now.

BWS: So what are your goals now?

Bully: My only goal right now is to become the TNA  World Heavyweight Champion. I mean, I know a lot of guys will sit here and say that, but I think it’s realistic. You’ll get a younger guy say “oh my goal is to win the World Championship” and I’ll be like “yeah, when? In ten years, gimme a break.” I’ve come so damn close in 2012, but I think that is a realistic goal that is right at my fingertips. And that’s a personal goal, for the company, I’d like the company to move forward, to continue to grow and become more of a household name in the wrestling world.

BWS: How do you get TNA a presence as more of a household name?

Bully: Product awareness. WWE has been around for 75 years, of course they are at the tip of everybody’s tongue. TNA has only been around 11 years, they still got a lot of growing to do. But there is a lot of light at the end of the tunnel for this company.

    The Dudley boyz are one of the greatest tag teams of the 90s and 2000s. It was when they left WWE the tag team division became an afterthought
