- TNA Wrestling star, Samoa Joe, talked to UK’s The Sun to promote No Surrender, which aired last night. In the interview, they asked him about the Bound for Glory Series. Joe responded by saying:
“It actually makes sense this time around. Last year we had some ridiculous scenarios. Next year, I’d like to see it move forward again. Maybe our fans could vote for who participates in the series and even have a tournament night with multiple matches to test a wrestler’s endurance.”

Bobby Roode was interviewed by 106.7 The Fan before a TNA Baseball Brawl show in Maryland. Below are some of the highlights:
Why the tag team division changed from now to what it was 10 years ago
I think it’s a lot of people connect more with singles wrestlers maybe, I don’t know. I think, not to to toot my own horn here but I think that’s what Beer Money had that was special, again you know that we brought to the table in tag team wrestling was we had teams to work with, you know the teams of 3Ds and the British Invasion and of course, the Motor City Machine Guns that really etched our name in some of the greatest tag teams of all time and I think it was the entertainment value as well. People were able to connect with us and what we did and whether they loved us or hate us they were entertained every night and that’s something that’s important in professional wrestling today.
How his feud and matches went with Austin Aries
I think just chemistry-wise, I think we’ve had some great matches and we never really, before this program started with him and I, we never touched each other. We never wrestled each other before and I didn’t know really much about him and he really didn’t know much about me. The contrast in styles was something I think maybe people thought wouldn’t work, but I think we changed everybody’s mind. And I think if there’s ever an opportunity for him and I to go at it again, I think we’ll accomplish what we did, if not do things even better.
He also voices his opinion on the mix of veteran and homegrown talent on the roster and what he thinks of “Jersey Shore” type people who come on the show. You can listen to the interview here.
