Chris Harris Discusses Why He Left TNA, Time In WWE, And If He Would Return To TNA

Former TNA Wrestling star Chris Harris was interviewed by Artofwrestling.com where he discussed several different topics in his career. Below are some of the highlights:

Why he left TNA

There wasn’t one main reason. It’s true I was frustrated, but we all go through that sometimes. My contract was up and I wasn’t being used much. There was contact elsewhere and I was fed a world of goods. I had to make a decision that was best for me and my family. We all have to take chances in life and career and that’s what I did.

His experience in WWE

That is something I will never truly know. I have my version of what I was put through, but a lot of people will say I just didn’t have what it takes. It was never about a name or a character. It’s the fact they would never let me go out and do what I do best. I had a number of people telling me a number of different things. I have enough confidence in my ability that I could have made something work. It made me hate wrestling and i needed to get out.

Whether he would return to TNA

I would always welcome an opportunity to return. I think I have a lot more to offer. Many are calling for an AMW reunion, but truth is Storm is so successful in his singles run that it wouldn’t make sense right now. It’s all about right time and right place.

Chris also talks about the tag team division in TNA while he was there, his comeback in TNA in 2011, the direction TNA is going with Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan there and a lot more. The full interview can be seen here.

    Time for the Braden Walker jokes:

      Braden Walker for WWE 2013 Hall of Fame.

      Somebody had to do it….

      • Bishop

        I thought he went in during the 2009 HOF?

    • Ken

      I thought he WAS the joke…

  • christopher525

    Yep, it was because WWE wouldn't let him go out and do what HE wanted to do, it had nothing to do with him coming in completely out of shape.

    • Guy Landau

      No, it's true, they didn't let him go out and do what he wanted to do – which was sit down and eat a lot of Twinkies.

        I know right! It's beyond belief that someone would get a development deal with the WWE, and then show up horribly out of shape. It's unprofessional, and I can see why they passed on him.

  • Thumpa

    Doea anyone remember that time he spoke to Matt Hardy backstage?
