On Whether He Prefers Being Face Or Heel: “I think I’m a natural heel so I much rather be a heel. For the sense of (being) a young wrestler, like I always try to tell people you know as soon as you get into wrestling that you should be a babyface because the heel is the one who really dictates the match.
Dutch Mantel used to tell me, well I was really fortunate to work with him in TNA and he used to tell me that a really good heel can walk out of the curtain and not say one thing to anybody and still get heat.”
X: Comments On JBL: “He just looks like a tool man, I would see him and be like, “Man, I don’t like this guy either.”
On TNA’s Current Product: “I really haven’t kept up with it in the last year or so, I can’t really comment on it, the only things I have seen are stuff with my friends like I saw the Beer Money/Machine Guns stuff, I saw Jay (Lethal) when he was doing the Flair stuff. I just saw the Jeff Jarrett MMA training video. I thought that was hilarious.
When they hire on guys that used to be in WWE and don’t develop their own stars it kinda makes TNA look second-rate.”
X: On Whether He Would Work For WWE: “I would definitely consider it, I think its everyone’s dream whoever gets into wrestling to be on that level, but it’s a matter of me getting back into the mentality of getting back on the road every week.”
Jimmy also talks about his TNA run, his ROH days, and what he’s doing currently in this 38-minute interview
