Al Snow appeared on Interactive Wrestling Radio to discuss several items. On his departure from GFW:

“Yeah, I’m certain it was a budget thing. Jeff [Jarrett] brought his own group, his own guys that he brought with him and there are only so many spots financially and budget wise that you can afford to have as far as producers. And, have a necessity and need for to produce the segments. It was myself and 2 other guys and he had brought in his own group. Somebody had to go! That’s just how it works. I had a great run there. It lasted MUCH longer than I expected. I have no complaints whatsoever. I wish them nothing but the best. I hope they strive and succeed and be a real force in wrestling. Hopefully, someday, I can come back and do business again.”

On whether he would rejoin Tough Enough if he was given the chance:

“Certainly! I loved being a part of Tough Enough. I’ve got to tell you, I think it is one of the greatest things I think I’ve ever done in my career. It was such a pleasure. if I’m remembered for only 1 thing, I hope I’m remembered for Tough Enough.”

On internet negativity towards GFW and if it was felt backstage:

“Of course it was felt backstage. I’m not giving lip service. Even if I still worked for GFW, TNA, Impact… I’d still state what the facts are. The facts are that everybody knew there were issues or factors that would occur or come up. But, I’ve got to tell you, one of the things that impressed me so much is that everybody there, and I do mean everybody there, worked so hard on that show. From the in ring talent to the production team to the camera crew to the office staff… I mean, you’ve got to think. They put on a comparable product to the WWE with not even a third of the budget, not even a third of the roster, not even an eighth of the resources, not even an eighth of the office staff, not even an eighth of the production staff.”
