Jerry Lynn on why he left TNA in 2007

Jerry Lynn in a new interview discussed why he left TNA back in 2007: “They had us all sign a little amendment to our contracts that said we couldn’t work for any independents that had TV, DVD distribution, PPV or even iPPV and that was a lot of my regulars and TNA wasn’t making me rich by any means. Now they’re telling me I can’t work for a bunch of my regulars and make any money and then they left me home for two TV tapings. That’s a whole month without any income. They were starving me to death so I had to ask for my release. I have a wife and two daughters at home I have to feed.” On whether he would reconsider retirement: “This is pretty much my body telling me, it’s had it. My bump card is full. The only match I’d come back and come out of retirement for and it’d be one time is if I got to wrestle on a Wrestlemania but I don’t foresee that happening. That would probably be the only time I’d come back. It kind of irks me that Snooki got to be on Wrestlemania and I never will.”
