What the fans of TNA/Impact Wrestling will see when he squares off with Scott Sunday this Sunday night at Slammiversary & his direct message to “Big Poppa Pump”: “I really wish that you would interview Scott after we have been in the ring together, because I think Scott would have a change of heart. At the end of the day, Scott is going to have no choice but to face me in the ring one-on-one. Karen Angle is not going to come to the ring in a wheelchair and fall off. Jeff Jarrett will not be involved. There’s nowhere for him to run and hide. He has to face me. I’m going to annihilate ‘The Big Bad Booty Daddy’ this Sunday on live Pay-Per-View at Slammiversary. I’m going to have to go through him to go ahead and move on to what I deserve, and that’s the World Title. I’m going to make it happen one way or another.”
His experience in giving back to the children of Western New York at the 2011 Variety Kids Telethon & what it means to him to come back to Buffalo several months later for next Saturday night’s TNA BaseBrawl event: “Buffalo was very good to me & my wife. We came in to help out with the Variety Kids Telethon that we were on to raise money. We were there early in the morning, and we were there until 1AM trying our to raise money the best we could. I had very good bond with with Gracie Joyce (the telethon’s celebrity child) & the rest of the Joyce family. It’s going to be really cool to go back with TNA to Buffalo and be able to have that family there. I’m going to get them tickets front & center, so they could see what I do for a living. It’s going to really cool to have them there, and I hope it’s cool for them to see what I do each & every day as my job.”
The importance of “getting the monkey off his back”: becoming TNA World Heavyweight Champion, unfinished business with Kurt Angle, & why he wants to be labeled as “the best giant in TNA history”: “I want to be labeled the best giant in TNA history. In order to do that, I’ve got to be a World Champion. The one man I had my best in-ring match with has been Kurt Angle, and yet I came up a little short. In my head, my ‘dream match’ for the World Title would have to be against Kurt Angle, where I pin Kurt Angle, because then I kill two birds with one stone. I would get the monkey off my back and become World Champion, while getting the other monkey off back and beating Kurt Angle, which I have not been able to do in singles competition.”
Much more is contained in “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan’s exclusive interview with The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network, including his candid thoughts on who he would like to face (between Sting, Mr. Anderson, Kurt Angle, & Jeff Jarrett) when he finally receives his shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, what he has taken away from his program with Scott Steiner, why he would like for his next on-air battle to be against ESPN’s Skip Bayless, his analysis of the 2011 NBA Finals, plus much more!
